“When a little black dress is right, there is nothing else to wear in its place.”*
“The Little Black Dress” has been described as sophisticated, sexy, provocative, chic, elegant, practical, seductive, correct, and ageless. The fashion designer, Christian Dior, said ” You can wear black at any time. You can wear it at any age. You may wear it on almost any occasion. A little black frock is essential to a woman’s wardrobe.” What’s great about “The Little Black Dress” is that it looks fabulous with or without jewelry. You can wear a scarf with it for an interesting effect and it doesn’t show dirt if you take it traveling. In addition black is slimming so you’ll look a few pounds less when wearing it. * The Duchess of Windsor

Build A Basic Wardrobe
There is no perfect basic wardrobe that applies to all. A basic wardrobe takes into consideration lifestyle or clothing for all of our activities. If you are a hockey coach your wardrobe is going to be a lot different than a corporate lawyer’s. However when we choose a basic article of clothing it is something we should plan on wearing many times (getting our money’s worth). These items are like good investments since they will reward us many times in the future. When buying basics purchase quality pieces, not necessarily the most expensive.
