You’d think after all this time, I wouldn’t get SO excited about a little black dress. Something simple and classic can only get so many compliments, right? That’s what I thought too...and I couldn't have been more wrong.
This one in particular landed in my mailbox from Eileen Fisher. This is my first time trying out the minimal brand and it certainly won't be my last.
There are so many things I love about this dress that it's hard to figure out where exactly to start. First, it's the PERFECT length. I can easily wear it to the office now and when it gets warmer.
Second, it's SO versatile - add a cozy DeNada shawl on top like I did now, or strappy sandals in the summer - I plan on living the majority of my life IN THIS DRESS.
When I get a new outfit, I like to wear it at the office to see what people think - it's sort of a test run before I release the look into the wild, if you will.
I'll admit - I was kind of stunned how many people LOVED this dress. From my bestie and photographer Erin to multiple viewers on Instagram Stories, it immediately became clear that people are in search of high-quality basics. Friends, as we'd tell our girlfriends who are just meeting our soul mate for the first time, this is one of the really good ones.
So good, in fact, that I wore it for Valentine's Day this year. First, for work, then for a lunch date with my bestest babe Erin! Then when I got home that evening, for a romantic French-themed dinner with the hubby! I already can't wait to wear it again.
