The simple black dress

I know you’ve seen the dresses that are too flary, too tight, too short, too colorful, too much pattern, too big and the list goes on and on. But what happened to the little, simple, cute black dress? You know the dress that you can go to work in and then spice up later with a blazer, scarf, or accessories for a late night dinner.

Well, I found this cute laced bottom black dress at TJ Maxx for just $19.99 and let me tell you the material was not cheap. TJ Maxx has some great dresses, preferably their solid colored dresses. Haven’t been to TJ Maxx in a while for clothing? You just might want to pay them a visit.

‘My Little Black dress’ may sound cliche but they still make a statement and will always be original. Especially if you wear it with bright bold lips and nail color.

Another fashion tip I’d like to bring up is ‘Coat Slinging.’ I recently read a post that totally bashed coat slinging stating that it doesn’t stay on your shoulders, you can’t hug people etc., etc. However, Coat Slinging in my opinion is classy. While wearing this style isn’t meant to be worn while going out dancing, it is meant to be worn if you anticipate sitting pretty at a dinner table across from your date. I don’t know maybe it’s my obsession with the 50’s and 60’s era. It says “I’m a mature, sophisticated woman” when it’s done right..it’s a vintage and classic look.

Do you think you could pull off a Coat Slinging look or would you dare try?

(FYI the red blazer is from Ann Taylor)
