"Little Black Dress" is such a cliche phrase that I feel silly even saying. Also, I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but a lot of little black dresses are just...well...boring. It's like an instant excuse to not need to put any effort into your ensemble. That said, you can still find some totally rad LBDs that work for both day and night, and that ooze personality. I find that the best route to take to find the perfect black "maybe it's fancy, maybe it's cazzh" dress is to shop vintage. The one I'm wearing here was a gift from my favorite ladies over at Telltale Hearts, and it's got a lot of the same really cool puckering found on the black velvet mini from House of Maryanne that I wore a few posts back. It's a subtle touch of "rad".
Should you wish to take the new apparel route, here are some of my favorite little black dresses:
