the perfect LBD

hi ladies! thank you all for your thoughts on twitter yesterday. your opinions were pretty mixed but i’ve decided to test the waters. click here to follow me!
today let’s examine the little black dress, that timeless classic we all turn to in times of fashion emergencies when it seems there’s simply nothing else to wear. here are my current shopbop picks for the goes-with-anything and, more importantly, goes-to-anything LBD.
{riller & fount’s keel one shoulder dress, $137}
a sassy one-shoulder number perfect for nights on the town.
{velvet’s miranda dress, $130}
a more classic option with universally flattering draping at the bust.
{monrow’s sweetheart dress, $198}
not to be worn to work: the sexy sweetheart neckline.
{riller & fount’s bali draped halter dress, $143}
another night out option: a barely there ruched halter.
{elizabeth & james’ audrey dress, on sale for $186}
elizabeth & james on sale? their classic aubrey dress is now 30% off.
{brigid catiis’ leather crisscross dress, $216}
what a cool way to incorporate a little leather into your wardrobe if, like me, you find the leather jacket isn’t quite your style.
{twenty8twelve’s depp dress, $255}
of course i had to include this backless number from sienna miller’s line.
{t by alexander wang’s classic pocket tank dress, $105}
an affordable floor-length option that could be accessorized for any occasion.
{rachel pally’s long cutout dress, $238}
i love the subtle cutouts on this classic rachel pally silhouette.

  1. I really love the long one. Something in the ‘rule’ about either showing a lot of arms, or a lot of leg, but not both, is speaking to me here. I find the mystery more alluring!

  2. I love the LBD so much that I literally have probably 20 different versions of it. The other day I bought another one and realized that I bought the same exact dress as one I already own! These are all great options and I would wear any of them!
