About seven years ago, when I made the shift from under-dressing to actual clothes, I was drawn to evening wear and beautiful gowns. I was, and still in love with flowing evening gowns…but dresses like that are rather expensive so when I started building my wardrobe I started with little black dresses. I was insecure and timid when I started to wear dresses and black is a pretty forgiving (and slimming) color. It was a few years before I felt confident to wear bold colors and patterns.
At one point I owned about a half dozen LBDs but when I lost weight I dropped a few dress sizes and they didn’t fit anymore. I think this is the only black dress I have in my wardrobe these days.
I hope you like these photos. Shannonlee did an amazing job of capturing a side of me I always wanted to see. Thank you for indulging me over the past few weeks as I showed what may have seemed like an endless stream of photos. 🙂
