FASHION BY THE RULES THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS





























FASHION BY THE RULES
THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS

During the past few weeks, I have outlined some of the perfect accessories and items that fill out your Fall wardrobe. The one thing that I have not specifically pointed out is the necessity of the “LBD” or Little Black Dress.

Whether the dress is for work, after five or black tie , you just cannot be without at least one and hopefully more. There is no more versatile item in your wardrobe and the best part is that if chosen wisely…………..you own it for life, so to speak.

While I was researching another topic, I started to see just how ubiquitous the little black dress is ………….sleeveless, long sleeved, one shoulder, strapless, short, long, wool, crepe and on it goes…………the variety is endless in style, fabrication and price. The online offerings are almost endless especially if you visit http://www.shopstyle.com/ where items are catalogued by style or designer or classification. They offer up every price imaginable from scads of resources like Saks or EDressme and from Ralph Lauren to Alexander McQueen .

So, after having been through various sites I decided to show off what I found……………….and the best is that they are all under $300. I even threw in the added bonus of a Norma Kamali jersey dress from Wal Mart at $24.99---which happens to be amazing. The Kamali was pointed out to me by a blog named The Recessionista which can also be found on Facebook.

Thanks to Wal Mart,Recessionista, Shopestyle, White House, Banana Republic, Acne Jeans, Bloomingdales, Piper Lime, Rugby and Ralph Lauren for some of the best of……………………….

As always I encourage you to explore the possibilities on line and off and to use the Fashion By the Rules as the guide for being fabulous……………….Don’t forget me at http://jeffybruce.blogspot.com/
