in an earlier post (see it here), i talked about LWDs - little white dresses. during the summer, there was nothing better than throwing on a simple white dress and lots of accessories before heading out into the sticky midwest heat. but now that fall is upon us (hopefully sooner rather than later) and school is starting again, the good old classic LBD will be reappearing once again.
but aside from a handful of formal events that will take place this year, a real, all-out
LBD won't be hanging in my closet. liz and i updated the idea with an edgier shape, casual material, and a statement-making pattern (now its more like an lbpd: little black printed dress). we're thinking it will work equally well for weekend parties (worn alone or tucked into a black skirt) and dinner with friends ruched up a little and worn with leggings. here liz dresses it up with some heavy jewelry and flattering nude pumps:
