The Perfect Little Black Dress!

Yes ladies, the holy grail of dresses has been found, the “Perfect” little black dress! And just what do I mean by perfect? I’m defining the perfect little black dress as;

  • Fitting off the rack (amazon rack that is)
  • It didn’t break the bank $59 with Free 2 day shipping (prime)
  • No dry cleaning required
  • NO SPANX NEEDED

Let me catch those of you up who are scratching their heads right now. I needed an lbd for a last minute event (a short curvy girls nightmare.) So I immediately started hunting. I ran to my local fav’s Marshall’s, TjMaxx and zippo, nada. So I hopped on Amazon and started perusing the cocktail dress section. They had soooooo many to choose from but I managed to I narrow it down to two darling dresses. Not being able to make up my mind and wanting to add some fun to this, I left the decision to my lovely readers and the winning dress was the lace dress. A BIG THANKS to all who voted!

With no time to spare the dress showed up on Thursday evening. I said a quick prayer and tore that sucker open. I swear on my children I heard birds chirping and lights from the heavens shone upon me when I tried it on. It fit like a glove in all the right places, and praise be to G-d I wasn’t going to have to wear Spanx or chicken cutlets!

If you are anything but 5’8 and a size 6 you know exactly what I am talking about when I say it is nearly impossible to find a dress that fits just right. That’s why I am calling this the Perfect Little Black Dress. This gem is the Unicorn of dresses, not too long, not too short, fitting but not too tight and I don’t have to be strapped in like a mental patient trying to escape an asylum!

For the night, I paired it (again with the help of readers) with my “go-to” nude heels! My favorite Sam Edelmans and Michael Kors clutch. The shoes come in about a gazillion colors and are attached to your feet. A must have for me, a natural born klutz. You can go check the heels out HERE!  (Be still my heart, check out those lovely rose gold ones!)

The Michael Kors clutch was a gift from the hubby and I use it whenever I have to “adult.” Even though it’s animal print it’s very neutral and it really does go with everything. You can check it out red, blue and navy. Needless to say, I will be ordering this dress in the red and the navy, just to have on hand. It would be perfect in navy for business events. It is also available in a lighter blue I believe, but not so sure I like that color. For size reference, I am wearing a size 8 and I am 5’4 and weigh about 135 on a no taco day.
