The Flying Squirrel Dress

The little black dress, or LBD, if you will, is a closet staple for many.  I love having minimalist, black pieces that can be dressed up or down and paired with a variety of shoes and accessories. One such dress that resides in my closet is loose and drapey; when one holds one's arms out it looks kind of like a big square. It reminds me of a flying squirrel or something.


Thankfully, I do not often have any reason to stand as such when I am out in public as looking like a flying squirrel is less than flattering on most people, myself included.  The dress has great movement when you walk around and it has a very nice drape. I wore this particular outfit to go out to a nice restaurant. I was anticipating a quiet evening; however, we were seated next to a large and very intoxicated group. It was somewhat amusing until they became so loud you couldn't even carry on a conversation. Note to self: do not go out for dinner during office Christmas party season. 

EQUIPMENT

Old bangles I found in my closet, Hillberg and Berk earrings, H&M necklace.

  1. Those shoooooes! I actually love geometric lbd blobs. One of my favorites is a triangle with a hole in the center for your head. It's got big batwing sleeves. Geometric dresses for the win! Also the best to dress up with accessories

  3. I JUST BOUGHT A LBD. Actually, I might have bought two. One is for a wedding, though. (Can one wear black to a wedding? I guess we're going to find out.)
