Dress – Aritzia
Every time holiday party season comes around, I always have some idea of the type of dress I want to wear. By mid-November, I’ve considered color, fabric, length, and accessories – all down to a tee so that I’ve honed in on exactly what I want. If I’m trying on other dresses, it’s mostly because it’s for fun or I need a gut check. Never did I ever think that in 2017, I would be looking for an updated LBD though! I knew I wanted something lacy, black, and with sleeves. I also knew that this would be a very popular style and that any party I went to, I would come across many other dresses like this one. Luckily, the fact that I would have chosen an unoriginal style did not bother me. This was one dress I didn’t have in my closet, but knew would be timeless for years to come.
I’m happy to report that since making this purchase, I have now worn it for 3 occasions total – a fancy holiday party, a dressed down holiday party and a bachelorette party! Sometimes the little black dress can seem a little bit like a cop out, but in my honest opinion, I think you can never have enough. There is always a use for one and there are so many variations of them to own. Also for those of you who have seen this photo and thought that my hair looked extremely long, there’s just a little girl sitting right behind me. My hair has never been this length!
