Closet Content Analysis: An Eternal LBD
Jessica Quirk wrote in a post on her blog, What I Wore, "I am a firm believer that nothing is the new black. Black is the only black . . . " I agree with her 100%. To call any colour the "new black" is wishful thinking at most, particularly when colours like orange or lime green are professed to be this "new black". Black is the perpetual "basic". So to say that orange is the "new black" is ludicrous. Everyone can wear black; not everyone can wear orange or lime green or would want to.
Black is a canvas, a base - with a solid base, you can put anything on it.

I have had other LBDs but this one has been eternal and I don't have any intentions of buying a new one.
Here are the ways I have worn this LBD:
1. For work - with a blazer style jacket, from floral to plaids including melanges of colour and solids.
2. For evening and more formal events - with a statement necklace or stacked bracelets and cuffs and the highest heels I can manage.
3. For casual lunches, brunches or other events - with a cardigan, scarf, black tights and flats, ballet or oxford style.
As you see, my LBD is a canvas and I create as need arises . . .
I have written about my LBD in previous posts . . . here they are:
How does black function in your closet, or rather on your body?
