In response to the Monday “Tag! You’re It” post on Good Girl Lit, I will tell you about the one article of clothing in my closet I can’t live without: The Little Black Dress. Currently, I own two. I know this makes me a cliché, but I don’t care. I have a sleeveless, v-neck, knee-length little number that can be dressed up or down, that looks great with pearls or flip-flops, that will not wrinkle no matter how long it’s been shoved in the bottom of my bag, and that I get compliments every time I wear. Oh, and the best part: my mother bought it for me, without me being there to try it on, for $11 at Target. The other is a knit wrap dress that I usually wear with a long slip, that has three-quarter length sleeves, is super-soft, and was on clearance at Old Navy. I’ve worn it with black stiletto pumps on a great date, and paired it with leggings and ballet flats for more casual occasions.
My mom was right: Every woman needs a great little black dress!
