Classic LBD The "Must Have" Dress in the Wardrobe



In a quandary about what to wear out to a swanky dinner, soiree or for New Years Eve?  The answer is very simple - drum roll please.....The Little Black Dress officially known as the LBD.  The LBD was introduced by designer Coco Chanel and became made a staple in every ladies closet with Audrey Hepburn in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) donning a Givenchy LBD.  Today, the LBD is a must have in every fashionistas wardrobe.  Even this fashionista is opting for a lovely LBD versus the previous red number sited in the last blog.  Why? Well, perhaps a bit too many holiday festivities this season.  The LBD is perfection on any woman divine silhouette after a month of having so much fun!

"When a woman smiles the dress must smile with her." Madeleine Vionnet, Designer



The color red is earthshaking for a special occasion or perhaps this New Years Eve!  Take a classic red frock and combine with nude, gold or even red pumps, glittering accessories and cause a ripple of envy at any soiree. Finish with ravishing red lip for instant va va voom.  Of course, be ready to speak about anything, walk with a head held high remembering grace, manners and kindness reign supreme.




"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."  Audrey Hepburn (1929 - 1993) - Actress, Humanitarian

"If you can take it, you can make it." Louis Zamperini (1917 - 2014)
Unbroken is based on the true story of Louis Zamperini,  an Olympian track runner, WWII bombardier, who overcame the horrors of war, was an alcoholic, family man and a spokesperson that lived an extraordinary life.   This mesmerizing tale is about an incorrigible youth who channeled defiance into running and became a track star in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany.  A month later as a B-24 bombardier in WWII, Zamperini finds himself in the middle of the Pacific Ocean on a raft without food for 47 days with sharks circling only then to become a prisoner of war (POW) in a Tokyo, Japan and thus the saga unfolds.
