Do you own a LBD? I’m sharing 4 reasons why you need a little black dress in your wardrobe.
I got my first job when I was 16, in retail of course. Having my own money was important to me. I had an allowance but I wanted more. I didn’t want to miss out on Friday night movie trips with my friends because I had spent my allowance during the week. My first ever job was at TJ Maxx. Needless to say that’s also where I blew most of my paycheck. My closet was lit!
I loved the freedom of being able to buy new clothes with the money that I had earned. Working at TJ Maxx I had a pretty lenient dress code. I could wear pretty much anything that I wanted besides jeans. I stayed at TJ Maxx for almost 5 years but shortly after I moved to Orlando, I went to work for upscale retail brands. That’s when my love affair for black started. I had never been a lover of wearing black. Color and denim is my thing. I love being able to express myself with different colors and patterns.
A little black dress is a staple in my wardrobe now. It’s a classic and you can never go wrong when you’re wearing one no matter where you’re going. One of my favorite things about this little black dress is that has a button snap. It makes it versatile so that I can wear it open for a night out on the town or closed when I want to be more reserved. I wore this lbd for a day of house hunting. I wanted something that I could be comfortable in all day long.

5 Reasons You Need a Little Black Dress in Your Wardrobe
1. It’s perfect for any occasion.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been spotted in a LBD. The first time that I wore this LBD was for our wedding weekend welcome party. I was 7 months pregnant with Tristan and needed something to accommodate my bump. This dress did that while still making me look slim. I ditched the white tee for that party and it was so comfy. A LBD can be worn literally anywhere. The grocery store, a board meeting, date night, the science fair – you name it.
2. Black looks good on everyone!
Black is my favorite because it makes me look good! It’s slimming to say the least. You honestly can’t go wrong with black. If you’re wanting to feel a little more comfortable in your own skin, throw on a LBD.
