After my last minute dress debacle a few months ago, I've kept my eyes out for a great little black dress to add to my closet. It's criminal that I don't have one already, but I really (really) don't want to go through the panic that ensued when a special event came up and I had zero time to find something new.
I've always steered clear of having a little black dress because they seem so boring. They're not how I choose to dress, generally. But now that I get the value of having something to work around at all times, I'm on the hunt.
I want a dress that has a little something special to it, a detail that makes it stand apart like an unusual neckline or a bedazzled something-or-other, but not something that's so memorable that I can't wear it again and again.
I went with an alice + olivia white & black leather number back in February (and it'll now be my go-to), but I really want something all black. In the meantime, I've been rockin' this black vince romper that is so comfortable it feels like pajamas.
