The Obligatory Little Black Dress Post

Every fashion blogger is required by law to write a post on the little black dress. Fashionising’s article on LBDs on the runway inspired me to share Avant Gaudy’s own collection with our readers.

My own little black dress is rather unoriginal – but therin lies its potential. It’s a strapless, knee-length number from Charlotte Russe, with eyelet trim and a simple ribbon belt. Not only do I change the ribbon to match every outfit, but black acts as a blank canvas. I add a cardigan most of the time, but sometimes I add a blazer or funky tights. I’d love to see how it looks with a colored crinoline underneath. For now, it looks something like this:

    i love the second-to-last dress! it’s too cute! i actually have an lbd collection. most of them i various salvation army stores but one of them i found at tjmaxx –i got it this fall, it’s short have a V back and covered in sequins! i’m wearing it for my birthday party in ten days, can’t wait! i really like changing them up. sometimes i wear little black dresses with a men’s dress shirt and belt, sometimes i wear a plaid thermal type shirt underneath to grunge it up, sometimes i wear it with a chunky sweater or with a sleek trench coat or with a long blazer and hats…i love lbd’s bc they are sooo easy to change up the look! just adding a different necklace or shoes says something completely different, it’s amazing, really! =)
