Chic Black Shirt-dress with Flats.

I Love this Dress. Despite the fact that I own at least 120 Dresses, this is STILL one of My Most Favorites. You can dress it up or down, wear to work or to a Cocktail Party, even to a Wedding. It is a Classic piece. I love that it is a LBD as well as it has the popular Shirt-dress style. You can wear Pearls with it, any Colorful Statement Necklace, Silver, Gold, Studs, Cluster Earrings, Drop Earrings, Dangly Earrings, Cuffs, Dainty Bracelets or an Army Party - really the possibilities are endless. When I wore this Dress this time, I reminded myself to wear it again (it hadn't been worn for far too long). This time I paired it with a Neutral Cardigan in the Palest Pink Color. I added my Red Ballet Flats & matching Studs. I wore the dress for an appointment at the American Embassy so I wanted to look Chic & feel like a million bucks in it (which I did).

  1. You are right, you can never go wrong with a LBD in a classic style like this one. I like the pale pink and red shoes too!

    To answer your question, we stayed at the Lake Erie Islands area (Marblehead/Catawba) which is not too far from my hometown. Hope you are having a great day! Heather

  7. Holy smokes, I can't believe you own 120 dresses! I'm so jealous! I probably only own 12 dresses, at the absolute most. You've totally just inspired me to buy more!!!

    This dress certainly would be a staple in my closet, though. Super polished yet very trendy for being a black dress. Love how you've styled it!

    1. I probably have closer to 150 actually, I gave away about 80-90 Dresses when I moved from USA to Europe. It still left me with over 100. Plus, since I have been to Albania, I have probably purchased about 20 Dresses or so. I find them so Versatile, easy to wear, perfect year-around & very Chic + Girly. You should definitely buy more, Lynette. =) You look great in Dresses.
