When in doubt, you always have a little black dress for any cocktail occasion. Audrey Hepburn solidified the classic black dress with Breakfast at Tiffany’s & since then, designers have created little black dresses in every which way. While this spring is all about the LWD (little white dress), I came across this Calvin Klein design (left) with some special pearl beadwork, sold at Bluefly. It’s simple & elegant, perfect for an after work affair with a stack of bangles & metallic heels, however the $80+ pricetage may set you back. The dress on the right is a Studio 1 design. I bet you’re thinking, who is Studio 1? Well, it’s a designer of women’s clothing sold at KMart. Before you judge or skip reading the rest of this blog, keep in mind that it is a look-alike item for a fraction of the cost, at $12.59, on sale now marked down from $59.99. You’re not very likely to come across a price like that for a Calvin Klein dress. You can even get some sexy lace tights & strappy heels from Payless & not even come close to the $80 of the first dress. For some LBD advice, take a look at In Style‘s Find Your Little Black Dress Style, as well as Elle‘s profile on Jennifer Aniston’s LBD choices! Some of my favorite LDB looks include Victoria Beckham, Zoe Saldana, Demi Moore, Scarlett Johansson, & Heidi Klum. Happy Styling!!
