Every last Friday of the month I will put a little black dress in the picture. As it’s the end of June and high summer is getting closer and closer, the LBD to start with is my strapless one.
I bought it several years ago at H&M for only 20 EUR and I do not regret this purchase at all ! I don’t wear the dress often, it being strapless. But it is such a basic dress which never goes out of style, so who cares that it is I don’t know how many years old !
I like wearing this dress when going to the seaside… just strolling around, have a drink here, an ice cream there, doing some shopping, visiting a gallery perhaps. Last summer I wore this dress on a trip to Cannes, strolling around the old town, having an aperitif at the Carlton hotel and having diner in one of the many seaside restaurants. I felt pretty glamourous walking down the Croisette and my husband enjoyed flaunting with me in my strapless dress.
I team this dress with a fuchsia suede 80-ies belt (a hand-me-down from my sister Maggy… thank you my dear sister !), my black Michael Kors sandals and my long golden earrings from Other Stories. I keep my eye make-up to a minimal as I like to put on my fuchsia lipgloss with this outfit. I take my bright pink, short-sleeved vest with me to make sure I’ve got something to cover my shoulders when needed. My Armani sunglasses complete this high-summer look.
I have worn my strapless LBD in autumn/winter as well you know… I combine it with a brightly coloured turtleneck or a white blouse, opaque tights and my boots or high heels. It really is a versatile dress and I will be wearing it for years to come !
