I have finally found it, the elusive item that has been missing from my wardrobe! I am sure everyone knows that you need a little black dress, aka the LBD, but I am not sure if everyone knows “why” you should have one in your closet. I have been searching for one that was comfortable, dressy but not a cocktail style, casual, and easy to care for.I found this Bobeau Cold Shoulder LBD at Purple Poppy, a clothing boutique in Cape Cod. I did a post last month and asked for feedback about what “your” favorite dress would be. Someone mentioned an LBD and that made a light bulb go off in my brain. I quickly went to check out the site because I have been searching high and low for one that I like. I am a “color” kind of girl but there are just times when I need to wear a black dress. Here are a couple of reasons that EVERYONE, no matter your age, your height, or your size, needs a black dress.
- You can wear a LBD to almost any function and be dressed perfectly.
- A LBD is slimming and who doesn’t want to look slimmer?
- It is simple. It is elegant. Pull it out and throw on a pair of nice heels and you have an outfit that you can wear anywhere.
- Black dresses are sexy. There, I said it! Men love a woman in a black dress!!! Maybe it was that slimming thing I talked about earlier.
- Something we don’t like to think about but you need a dress that you can wear to a funeral.
- Any color of jewelry will look good with a LBD. Pearls, silver, gold, and colorful!
What caught my eye on this dress was the cold shoulder feature. You know I like a unique feature that will set a clothing item apart from all the others. The cold shoulder trend is HOT right now. This opening is perfect for us ladies who are not 20 years old. It is open but it is not too revealing. I also liked that fact that the straps were wide enough that you could wear a normal bra with the dress. Like most of you, I don’t like strapless bras either and with this dress, I wore my normal bra. Was that too much information? Lol!I didn’t list that a LBD never goes out of style. That is true but since this has a cold shoulder feature it does not fall into that category. HOWEVER, the price of this dress makes sure that you will be able to get your wear out of this dress. The price was one of my main concerns. The Bailey 44 Mediancohe Dress is one that you might consider if you are looking for one that will stand the test of time.The high-low hem is another trendy feature that will show everyone that you are on top of your fashion game. This high-low hem, however, is not as dramatic as some I have seen and so it is easier to wear. The dress strikes me right above my knee which is perfect for me. I think this dress would work equally as well for those that are more Petite. I normally wear a large and that is what this one is. The flutter sleeves are very feminine. They are flirty, fun, and flowy! The deep scoop neckline elongates your neck giving you a more flattering silhouette. I like all the “f’s” in this dress, flirty, fun, flowy, feminine, and flattering! Lol!!!BTW, this dress also comes in gray. Purple Poppy sent me both colors for me to choose from. I sent them back an email and told them to bill me for the gray one because I am keeping it too! Haha!
You can have you own LBD with all the “f’s” for yourself AND at a discounted price. When you check out, type in Poppy to receive 10% off. PLUS, if you spend a $100.00 you will receive free shipping. That is a pretty sweet deal. Once you get this dress you need to let me know how you wore it.
