A couple of weeks ago I took a friend of mine shopping to help her find a few dresses to wear for a wedding and a rehearsal dinner. I wanted to help her find something fun and versatile, which brought me to the little black dress. Every woman needs a black cocktail dress, it can get you through a last minute party, a night out on the town, an outing to the symphony and the list goes on. Also, black goes with any skin tone and you can always have fun pairing it with some sassy shoes or jewelry. We ended up at White House Black Market and found exactly what she was looking for. When looking for a piece of clothing I know I’m going to wear over and over I usually like to go with a classic style. I put together a few looks based on what we found. My friend ended up choosing the sleeveless black dress and the flirty blue Cascade Ruffle dress for the rehearsal dinner. What’s great about these dresses you can wear the same shoes and jewelry with both and no one will ever notice!
