A LBD, (Little Black Dress), can take you to so many different occasions from work, date night to a social function. The main styles that are a must are a sheath, a maxi dress, a curve-hugging dress and a formal black dress. While recently doing my spring cleaning closet reorganization I thought about this being a great topic to blog on. Mostly because I realized that I had quite a few solid black dresses, all different styles though, and serving different purposes.  I have a black sleeveless maxi that will be a staple for the spring/summer seasons. Then there’s a black body-con dress that’s great if you’re feeling flirty and may happen to have a big date-night. I also have my NaKIMuli Dookie Dress, which I’ve only worn once, but is a showstopper if you want to capture all of the attention when entering a room. I ended up realizing that I just needed a special section in my closet solely for my LBD’s so that they’re all in easy access and in plain view when choosing which type of event that I’m attending.
