Every woman must know that she needs at least one little black dress in her wardrobe. It's a staple because it's a classic. Trends may be fun, fascinating and fleeting, but the LBD is timeless.
Since the LBD is a staple, you might want to consider splurging a bit. You wan't your LBD to last for a long time and not have parts of it sagging or fading after a few washes.
I got this skater dress from Cotton On. Normally LBDs have sexier silhouettes but I opted to wear this one since I had to go to school after work.
I love that this dress can take me to work (glammed up a bit with stilettos) and to school (with ballet flats and my trusty blush satche -- which I blogged about HERE) with minimal styling.
