Little Black Dresses Part 1
Never stop yourself from buying a little black dress, especially if they are knee length or tea-length (easy to dress up or dress down) and are on sale. I would have a hundred little black dresses. They're flirty, flattering, and guys totally like them because they're little dresses and they can look at your calves and knees and stuff.
Shoshanna is the party dress line to beat. Her stuff is young and fun and not as pricey, as say, a Lewis Cho or Geren Ford dress (also stunning, but yikes! $500 for a little black dress??).
And Cynthia Rowley, well, I'm just smitten. I stop by her store on Melrose every week to see what's new on the sale rack. It's more pricey than Shoshanna, but her colors and detailing make her dresses the most sophisticated/girly creations around. I dare you to not make out with a guy in a Cynthia Rowley dress. And her website has sick sales. This might be the first time I'm actually hesitant to share things that I've love that I've bought!
And if you're not wearing these to dates or parties, pair them with a fitted, bright red cardigan or a little black blazer, you can also pass as a coquettish receptionist from the 50's ala Elizabeth Banks in the Spiderman movies.
Get these, but only if you want to look incredibly fucking cute.
These two dresses happened to go on sale and I own them both.
