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
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.

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!

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.
Do you have a “go-to” LBD? I would love to hear about it?
