The Classic LBD



It's been stated a million times before but it's as true today as it was decades ago - every woman should have a little black dress in her closet.  The LBD has often been viewed as an "investment piece", but I'm so happy to be sharing with you today this dress from the new Penny Chic by Shauna Miller line.  There are different styles for any age, height & body shape (in plus sizes too) so there's truly something for everyone.  I am wearing "the classic", which fits & flatters like a dream.  I only wish it had been over 25 degrees so I could have shown you how gorgeous it is without the coat on.  Click here to see all the styles available & find your perfect LBD for just $20!
 
 


What I'm wearing:
c/o Penny Chic by Shauna Miller dress (here), c/o SheInside coat (here), Madewell belt (similar), Chinese Laundry pumps (on sale here), Expressions NYC clutch (similar here or here), Anthropologie necklace (similar here or here), Ann Taylor cuff (similar), Target sunnies (similar), Lips: Maybelline Are You Red-dy, Nails: Sally Hansen White On

I actually don't have an LBD but I don't really miss it. I wouldn't be against having one if I just happened to see a black dress I liked, but I think it can be easy to use an LBD as a crutch. If you always reach for the LBD for a semi-dressy occasion, you don't bother trying to think of something interesting and unique to wear. I mean I don't think YOU would have that problem, but some people would :)
On another note, love those shoes!!

25 degrees? I couldn't survive. I don't think it has been that cold here ever. I love the red coat with the dress and those cap toe heels!

Very cute, love the polka dot belt with it. I think I have one black dress, but I barley wear it!! I'm usually into bright colours so when I have a special occasion I reach for something else, however I think everyone should own at least 1 black dress.
