The "Must Have" Dress in the Wardrobe



Audrey Hepburn - Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)


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!
