My Little Black Dress Diary
Finding a Little Black Dress that compliments my body can be a bit challenging sometimes. When I think of the LBD, I normally think of short sleeveless dresses that always look great on slender bodies. It’s like a sexy dress made for the skinny girls. I really don’t like to wear short dresses because my legs and thighs are big. I also don’t like to show off my arms because they are big too! I mean, can I just keep it real….. I am a big and curvy girl. Although I am a pretty confident woman that loves herself. There are parts of my body that I am just too shy to show off. So finding a little black dress that I love has been out of the norm lately, up until now.
Recently I found a LBD at Fashion To Figure that I actually love. When I saw it in the store, I was instantly drawn to this dress because it had sheer sleeves and cold shoulder details. I immediately thought, “This dress might be the answer to my body flaws”, but I didn’t want to get my hopes high until I tried it on first. Once I tried on this dress, I was pleased that it offered coverage for my arms and it was a great fit. “OMG, I actually have found a little black dress that I love!”, was my first thought after trying it on. The dress came just above my knee, which is still a little short for me. However, I really loved the fit of this dress, so I had to get it.
I wore the dress out last night, I felt so confident and sexy! Since purple is one of my favorite colors, I decided to add it as a pop of color in my accessories. Not to mention, I have dark purple hair also. I met up with some girlfriends at the Gypsy Kitchen in Buckhead. It’s a swank restaurant with a great patio in the heart of Buckhead. It’s the perfect spot for a date night or girls night out. I received so many compliments on my look. I’m just so happy to have found a LBD that actually compliments my curves!!!!
