The LBD: Long Black Dress

I was super excited to get dressed this morning. It was a happy Monday moment--they don't happen often. I was under the weather in bed all weekend and didn't put on a single item of clothing that had a zipper or button. Dressing today was a joy. I felt pretty again. 

The black maxi dress: the other LBD: Long Black Dress. This Forever21Plus Spring 2012 is versatile and effortless. With a slip I can wear it to work (there are some lace details that flash a bit too much leg for my museum office setting) and accessorize and stylize with color, metals, and stones--all get great play off the black. Remove the slip and it is perfect for the evening. It can take me from a formal dinner to a dive bar rock show with a swap of scarf and a quick hair change. I love that.
