Find your dream LBD

The search for the perfect little black dress is similar to finding the man or woman of your dreams. You’re always sorta looking for it, you find a ton of the wrong ones along the way but then finally, when the right one comes along, its as if all is right with the world. I’m getting weepy just thinking about it. The dress — not my fiancé. Though I love him too!

This is my favorite black dress. I’ve waxed poetic about it before over on Goodwill New England’s blog and I’ve had it for almost a decade now! The first time I wore it was as a Bob Barker girl for a college version of The Price is Right. Now I wear spanx under it but that is neither here nor there. The little black dress will be your best friend this holiday season. So hunt for one!  I promise you won’t ever be sorry that you own a perfect-fitting-works-for-every-occasion-dress in your closet. Need some help hunting one down? Check out the slideshow for some great local options from my favorite etsy shops.
