Cocktails? Perfect.

A few of us have already been out front with the basic

Little Black Dress

which, like all fashion, changes a bit every season.

This season gives us a few standouts:

Donna Karan,

Donna Karan above,
the most perfect skirt with the dropped waist bodice.

Diane Von Furstenberg
below, as presented on the runway
notice how the garment just does not present itself well... 

the same outfit, as ordered by the luxury specialty stores
lovely longer length with a beautiful slit, 
the tuxedo back curvivng & dropping even longer,
balances the shoulder treatment, don't you think?

Calvin Klein
the perfect day-in day-out LBD,
change it up with all kinds of different accessories...

Donna Karan Platform
this green says you know a thing or two about fashion

Marc Jacob Fur Cutaway Jacket
wonderful with the black  as it's the bit of whimsy needed.
Kalgan Lamb & Fox pieced together to look like crochet
$4800 when money is no object, and we can dream
(like this,  on our blogs).

Don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY
going on until Monday September 20th.
look back 2 post's ago & make a comment.

Dearest Marsha, how are you? How was your trip?

You're right you can't beat a black dress. I prefer the DVF in longer length and the green shoes are divine. C xx

I'm a fan of Donna Karan and I like the beaded ruffle around the neck, the model reminds me of Queen Elizabeth 1st. I recognize the beauty of the green shoes, the design is fabulous,but I refuse to wear all those high clumpy looking shoes, I refused in the eighties too, I love neat shoes.

Marsha - too funny - I was just going to do a lbd post!! We are certainly on the same page. My favorite is the long Calvin Klein. It's the perfect dress me up, dress me down. Since I think we're going to be seeing a lot of each, shall we exchange blog rolls? I'll add you now!


Hi Marsha! I definitely prefer the DVF longer. And that Marc Jacobs jacket is spectacular. Adding that to the fantasy list :) Hope u had a fabulous trip & a wonderful weekend! xoxo
