Although the little black dress is still the king of my closet, I'm appointing the new queen of my wardrobe: the little white dress! I'm so adoring this Rory Beca dress that the super-friendly, party-pretty gals at the Social Dress Shop sent me - it's pure spring and summer fun, so chic, and makes me feel resort-ready, even if it's just heading out for seafood flown inland and the only colorful umbrellas are in my drink.
The LWD is the perfect base for any trend: black and white, neutrals (can't you just picture it with camels and off-whites?), pastels, or super-brights, which is the look I went for today. I'd always been hesitant to wear all white, even though it's one of my favorites, because I'm such a klutz. But if I can keep red wine off the front of me, this dress is going to be my seasonal staple, so be looking for it again and again and again. Seriously!
And if I'm going to wear white, it better not be skin tight. At my age, morphing from flattering to OMG only takes the wrong silhouette and little left to the imagination. Neither are a problem with this dress. I adore the shape skimming silhouette of a tunic dress which will keep me reaching for it (but Chloe preferred the included sash), and was impressed with the included nifty, flirty racerback slip. Nice jumpstart to my wardrobe for spring. Ta-ta for today, LBD!!
Be sure to check out the Social Dress Shop and see what other cute dresses they have!
What do you think... if there was a showdown between the LBD and the LWD (little white dress) which would you choose for spring and summer?
