Code Black

July 28, 2019

Black is my absolute favorite color or non-color if you will. It's powerful, its protective, its mysterious, and its sexy AF! Some of fashions most iconic pieces were created in this beautiful contrast; the Burberry trench originally created for officers in the military dating back to the 1850's, Chanel's classic 2.55 bag created in 1955, and of course the little black dress. 


The little black dress made its way to fame back in 1926 when the iconic Chanel drawing was featured on the cover of Vogue. As years have passed we've seen hundreds of different silhouettes produced by brands high and low. What makes the LBD so classic no matter what style, is its classic color... BLACK!



  • never out of season,

  • instantly dresses up a look 

  • always chic

  • easy to match 

  • flattering to the body

  • looks good in any fabric

  • allows room for accessorizing 

  • works well with any skin tone 


During one of my favorite fashion eras the 90's of course. Calvin Klein gave us his new version of the lbd. It was sleek, it was sexy and many called it an under garment. It was a simple slip dress cut on the bias with spaghetti straps. This chic little dress became super popular and was seen on celebrities left and right. Sometimes paired with a sexy sandal or layered with a white baby tee and combat boots. 

Today the little black dress is still just as popular and in demand as it has always been. It has become a basic staple in the wardrobe of just about every fashion lover or person who needs a dress they can where anywhere. As a busy mama but still a young woman I am always looking for pieces that are comfortable but still fashionable, sometimes sexy and that I feel represent my sense of style. The little black dress checks off all those boxes for me.
