When I was about 11 years old, my dad taught me a very valuable lesson I have never forgotten. We were in a thrift shop and I found the prettiest black dress (that I still own.) I stood there looking into the mirror and told him, ‘I love it, but I already have a black dress…’ To which my dad smiled and responded, “But you can never have too many little black dresses!”
Now whenever I think about buying YET ANOTHER LBD, my dads voice always speaks louder than the little voices saying, ‘but what about the mortgage!’ Ha, kidding. Mostly.
To be totally honest, a little over half of my clothes are black. Half of those being LBDs. I have a going out LBD, a tweed LBD, the LBD I wore to my 8th grade graduation, a silk polo LBD, a turtleneck LBD I wear once a week in the winter, a midi-length LBD, a LBD with long armpits that makes me feel all the norm core vibes, a LBD I borrowed from my sister years ago…the list goes on.
This LBD is no exception. It’s such a cute dress for fall - the high neckline gives it all the autumn appropriateness but cool enough for running out to lunch. It’s super soft too, which is always a bonus in my book. (My husband teases me ALL THE TIME for making comfort and softness be mandatory of all my clothing.)
This little number came from South Moon Under’s exclusive collection and is the perfect blank slate for a million and one outfits. Pleather leggings + this dress + boots. Skinny jeans + this dress + white sneaks. Tights + this dress + pumps + blazer. This dress + long cardigan + flat boots…the possibilities you guys. They’re endless.
And don't forget! South Moon Under's Denim Event ends on Sunday, so get over to one of their locations this weekend for 20% off all their full priced denim! I found the most perfect pair of black jeans there that I have literally not stopped wearing since.
