Women dote their little black dress, it is no secret. When I was 17, I found my first BB Dakota perfect LBD, and I wore it until (probably last year) but it still holds a place in my closet and heart, as the dress that taught me how far a black dress will take you. Since my high school years, I hadn't come across another dress that I esteemed as much, until I found this one while searching for something to wear to a charity gala. I knew it wasn't a ball gown occasion, and that I would be sitting with serious entrepreneurs so my frilly pinks and brights would have to be subdued for the night. However, the layer of tulle under the lace creates a poof and that was enough to draw me in. I actually wore my hair in a slicked back bun and didn't wear bright lips that night, but it felt too mature, so later on I did a messy pony and the brightest shade of red I could find for my lips to make play up the poofy fun of the dress.
