Back to the Basics: My Little Black Dress



"The little black dress is “a uniform for all women of taste.”Vogue November 1926

Hey fashionistas! 
                How are you all doing? Today is all about LBDs (Little Black Dresses), They are soooo essential, they have a fashion mnemonic, LBD. Sincerely I can't emphasize this enough. EVERY WOMAN/GIRL NEEDS A LITTLE BLACK DRESS. At least one, I think I have 4 Lmao. Well, this is 1 of 3 posts I will be putting up about little black dresses. You know how jeans and white Tees are fashion essentials, well LBDs are way more essential. Apart from the fact that they can be worn in ANY season, they can also be worn to EVERY occasion and EVERY where. The only difference is the accessories you use. For example , when going for a job interview or corporate meeting you can put a cozy, stylish blazer over your black dress, or for a date, you could pair it with bold colored accessories and shoes so you look sassy and eye catching without going over the top. They are my GO TO fashion outfits, e.g if my friend was to abruptly tell me about her birthday party at 5:30 pm while the party is at 6pm, this is how I will dress




It takes no time to put this together. I wouldn't wear a lot of colorful accessories just because I wouldn't want to be the center of attention lol ( it's her b-day, let her be the star). I would go with my Guess black dress, my African accessories, (Ankara necklace (done by me), Earrings and bracelets from Cameroon), lovely brown Wedges for Shoedazzle . I would also keep my make up very simple, with a nude lipstick from MAC (creme sheen). Hope you love my outfit of the day.
