When the Little Black Dress Becomes the Little Pink Dress

LBD.  Little Black Dress. That iconic closet staple introduced by the one and only Coco Chanel, so popular that it’s basically become its own enterprise within the fashion world.

I, like many, appreciate a good black dress, however I’ve come to accept that black just isn’t. my. color.

That being said, pink has basically been my closet color substitute for black, and considered a neutral for me, so it’s only appropriate that I found what can be deemed the perfect “Little Pink Dress.” {Um, can this please be an actual thing?}

True story: I found this dress back in September and almost bought it full price until ultimately deciding against it, then basically admired it until January when it went on sale for 30% off!  At that point I just couldn’t resist any longer.  Glad I didn’t, this is practically my dream dress!

I love how the neckline is almost a boatneck scoop, not quite a boatneck and not quite a scoop, but still classic, elegant, and flattering!

The bow back is my absolute favorite part of this dress.  It’s honestly one of the cutest details out of all of the dresses I own!

Love and Stay Preppy,

    I love this color on you, it really makes you pop (and I'm sure a black version would be just as pretty too)! This type of neckline is one of my most favorites when it comes to dresses or peplum tops because it gives it a really classy and elegant look. The back is super cute with the dipped cut out and bow! Loveeeee.

    I love this dress! I just bought a similar one from Kate Spade and I have no regrets! The color looks great on you! And I agree, the little black dress is becoming the little pink dress (at least to me!) Xo,Mary
