Ah, the little black dress. 

We all know and love our LBDs for one major reason in particular: VERSATILITY. What I’ve learned over the years is that it’s important to invest in some classic pieces, that you will wear for years and years and will never go out of style. Going for more expensive purchases that fit you beautifully and are nice quality are worthwhile investments. They will look great on you an d will be versatile in your wardrobe. Go for less expensive purchases for trendy pieces that will go out of style quickly. When I saw this dress from Gianni Bini, the  silhouette looked liked something I wanted to wear. I love the scooped neck, sleeveless, and simple, feminine shape. I styled the look with the cute tropical cross body bag from Nicole Lee USA. Pink and green and black are all complementary colors. There’s still something to love about every one of those combinations. The first time I put this on to wear (to church), Hubby asked why I was wearing my “vampire dress” and told me it would work really well for this upcoming Halloween. Haha! I had no idea how entirely versatile this little black dress could be. It always feels amazing to build piece like this into my wardrobe that I know will last through lots of years and seasons, because they are timeless and classic.  

As always, thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful week!
