Last month I started this LBD-of-the-month post with a strapless dress (seen here and also at one of the last pictures in this post). As it is the last Friday of July… it is already time for the second LBD-of-the-month post.
A couple of years ago I was in Paris with my husband. We were in the Marais, a fantastic, bustling neighbourhood in the ‘City of Lights’. The LBD on show today I bought in one of the many little shops overthere.
I tried on a beautiful nude dress, but unfortunately it was sold out in my size. “We’ve also got this in black”, the vendeuse said. Well… you can never do wrong with a LBD so I tried it on. It was perfect ! It is draped and has a slightly Greek feel to it (but not too much I think). The neckline is trimmed with goldthread and it adds just that little extra in my opinion.
It is a dress I wear mostly in summer because of the light fabric. I do have to wear an underskirt under it though, not to reveal too much leg ! I usually wear this dress quite classic with black heeled sandals. For this post I’m wearing my red roses earrings and a matching bracelet with red glass stones shaped as petals and rosebuds. I bought these jewels in Amsterdam… so it’s quite an international outfit today ! I also like this vintage clutch with it. I don’t take it along that often as I don’t get all my stuff in it, but for a party (or for a photoshoot) it’ll do !
If you’re interested in more little black dresses, on August 28th I will post the third LBD-of-the-month post so make sure you don’t miss it !
