Confession: I am 25 years old and I do not own my own Little Black Dress.
I have this black and white dress but its more of a day dress; this lack of the LBD proves a problem when you and your husband are invited to his godfather's birthday party out on Long Island at a fancy catering place, and the invitation says, "Black and White Attire."
A lot of things ran through my head when I read that and I will not repeat those here.
I don't do black and white. It washes me out like no tomorrow. Heck, I don't think I own anything black in my closet, except for my suit (which for some may come as a shocker - this New Yorker does NOT wear black).
I have two options: either suck it up and get a black dress, or not go.
This dress is making my decision a wee bit more difficult. The not going decision that is. Because this is a black dress that I actually like (pigs have flown!):It's the optical illusion dress from Anthropologie. Reviews of the dress have been pretty good, saying that curvy, chesty gals (like me) fit the bill for it. I love how it mildly screams Mad Men too.
Now my question for you sartorial ladies: would this be a dress that you could also wear to a wedding? I have a wedding in June 2011 (my godsister's) that I am going to and in the name of economy, I will get this dress if I can reasonably wear it to the wedding.
