What woman doesn’t need a little black dress, lovingly referred to as the LBD, for some event in her life? I feel like I always need one! Did you ever see that trend on Instagram where women asked their male partners what an “LBD” was? It was hilarious to see what the males responded. I can confidently say that Matt knows all too well what the LBD is. He didn’t even hesitate when I tried it on him.
Before I dive in, these photos were taken at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar on our mini vacation last weekend. I have sooo many more photos to share as this is a tiny corner of the property that caught my eye just when driving up. This corner doesn’t even begin to capture how beautiful the grounds are but I wanted to start with this teaser that told me in a moment that I was about to love our weekend at the Fairmont. More are coming and I will do a full review of the hotel after I share my ‘A Dress A Day’ series because it is an absolutely incredibly hotel. They are somehow about to make an entire experience feel catered to you. You can catch a few glimpses in my California highlight on Instagram!
When it comes to little black dresses, you can always get so much wear out of them. I love them all. All cuts, all shapes, all fabrics. You can just never go wrong. It’s the best uniform a girl can wear. This little black dress by French Connection is one of my favorites because of the quality of the fabric (it won’t fade either). It’s definitely high end and the ruffle detail makes it really versatile. It could be a ruffle for a night out at a bachelorette party or for an office party. It adapts when you change your accessories. I would recommend sizing up if between sizes especially if you’re tall. It runs a little small on the hip in my opinion as does everything with this brand.
Here are my favorite LBDs from across the internet.
I have to give a shout out to these crystal hoop earrings. For $40 they are incredible for every occasion this summer – weddings, date night, bachelorettes. Trust me, they’re incredible. Check out the other cute earrings I’ve shared this series in my accessories shop along with my favorite sandals, bags, and sunglasses for spring!
I also have to shout out these heels and this bag. They are absolutely investment pieces and it took me a very long time to invest in them. But, I have never regretted it for a minute. The heels are insanely comfortable and just last SO long. They are my most worn shoes. I’ve never had to get them re-heeled or fixed. And this bag is the perfect size. It comes in several colors but fits everything you could possibly want and can be worn as a cross body, a shoulder bag, or over the elbow. I tried to show that in today’s post but I love the versatility!
Do you have a favorite little black dress? What is it?
