I just love a little black dress. I really love it when they feel like pajamas and I don’t have to wear a bra… because I’m a not-so-secret sloth/slug. I picked this up as an unexpected sale find at American Apparel to wear to the theatre one night and it’s pretty effortless.
The polka dot detailing means you don’t have to worry too much about jewelry and the sweetheart neckline is complimentary for all gals – especially us small busted ones. They say short gals should avoid a midi-length but I happen to think it’s very flattering, especially when you’re wearing something body con. I feel like way less of a tramp if I can at least say the length falls past my knees… even if it is skin tight. Maybe that’s just my catholic school girl upbringing though… as long as the length of the skirt hit the ground when you were on your knees you were safe.. this dress? Totally safe.
The back is extra dramatic and swoops just enough without being too revealing.
Grab yourself the dress (on sale!) from American Apparel here. The shoes are the Brandi via ShoeMint but they’re sold out, here is another pair that are pretty close in style + price point.
