Cocktail Dress Hour : LBD #27

December 10, 2010

Every woman should have one little black dress, as advised by the ladymags. I have 27. Yes, I counted.

I am feeling incredibly motivated to give my closet some order and have been organizing things into three piles: keep, sell, and donate. I am trying to organize everything before my laziness kicks in and I have been doing pretty well.

Back to LBD#27, this is an impulsive Victoria's Secret purchase that was surprisingly successful. The size 0 was too tight for my 34B/32C chest but the dress gave me cleavage (however pressured my boobies must feel). I know the bf will like it but I do feel pretty self-conscious even taking these pictures.

How many little black dresses do you own? What other kinds of closet "staples" do you have too many of? I know everyone collects something...e.g. SewPetiteGal's cardigans, Matt and his incredible shoes collection, and Ping's FP clothes. What is your current vice?

p.s. I did my hair following Sophia's hair bun looks pretty crappy compared to Sophia's perfected version but I am confident that a few more tries will result in better looking buns.

  1. Awww, thank you so much for the mention!! I love reading your blog!! And I just love this dress too!! And 27 little black dresses? That's awesome!! (Hehe, and I have to say, I would consider a dress that gave me some cleavage a surprising success too!) I actually don't know how many little black dresses I own... I know its at least 3-4! I will have to count them and get back to you, although digging through my closet tends to result in trying things on, no matter what my original mission was!! Good luck with the sorting! :)

  2. i love the blue shoes! i'm scared to count my dresses=X

  3. OMG i can't believe u own 27 lbd!!! you look hot in that dress btw, definitely wear it for your bf. you are out of control, but i guess so am i with my FP collection. lol i can create a FP boutique with my closet. i agree with above, love the pop of blue against the all black!

  4. You look beautiful in that dress - and wow to 27!!! If you do have a blog sale I think you will make many fellow petites very happy :)

    I actually have only one! It's sooo old though, I think I should look for a new one though - one of better quality.

  5. I have 1 LBD, but it's kinda of loose on me, so I want another one. The VS dress looks soo good on you. Definitely wear it on a date night with BF! Throw on a blazer in public and you should be good to go :)

    I'm trying to think what I have a lot of... perhaps bags? I have 7, so that doesn't seem like a whole lot, but is my weakness!

  6. OMG 27! I can't see clearly in the photo but are there like bustier-style cups? Sexay! I'm shocked this is a size 0 as the VS stuff I've tried on before ran pretty big.

    I'm laughing thinking about SPG's 50 or so cardigans and Ping's free people boutique. I wish I could collect Chanel (wishful thinking, eh?) but for now I guess I've been collecting Theory clothing? I keep all the tags too so I know the fabric and color names in case I come across coordinates in the future : )

  7. I have TWO black dresses. That's a far cry from 27. I need to get some more!

  8. Wow! I knew you had a lot of dresses, but 27 lbds?! It boggles my mind! But I guess if you wear them all, it's worth it.

    I used to have a lot of jeans, maybe 20 pairs of blue jeans at one point, but now, I've taken it down to 5-6 pairs of jeans of different washes. =)

  9. 27!! I have barely 1 LBD, but it has sequins on it and doesn't quite fit all functions. I am indeed in need of a simple but flattering black dress. It's been a struggle to find any that I like on me. I would love to see you post all 27 LBD's at once. haha

  10. Oh you probably know I collect all kinds of hosiery. I've been collecting LBDs as well, but my collection isn't as large as yours. I'm really picky! I'm trying to collect shoes, but shoes take up SO much space. I can't wait to move out and dedicate a whole room to my closet. LOL

  11. Wow! 27 Lbd's?!!...Now I don't feel so guilty (I collect them too and I'm up to 13)Lol This dress fits you so good, nice piece of luck. I never order from VS 'cause you never know, right?

  12. I do not own a single LBD. My senior prom dress was black, tulle and sequined (more of a short ballet-inspired party dress than a formal gown) and I do still own it, but I have not worn it since the prom.

    The closest thing I have to an LBD would be my recent PFC #4 dress and a velvet cowl neck dress from Rampage that I bought in a discount store over 10 years ago.

    I do have my own collection of sweaters which are vastly overcrowding my closet. I started 'collecting' wool sweaters when I first got out of college because they are a necessity for work attire here in New England (college meant big baggy sweatshirts). I don't know how many I have, but I think I am approaching 20 cardigans and a similar number of pull over styles. And I have recently begun an addiction to shoes, having purchased 15 pairs of heels in the last 9 months.

  13. That dress looks great on you!

    And, 27?!? Holy cow! I have one that is truly "little." The second black dress fits, but it is not little and sexy. It works for formal events for work.

    I cannot think of anything that I have too many of. I have a lot of (but not "too many") grey/gray...still have not figured out which spelling of that I prefer. Lol!

  14. Wow- I can't believe 27!!! I think right now, I am collecting scarfs and pins! And maybe shoes...LOL

  15. WOW 27?!?! Looking forward to see what is in your sell pile :]

    The LBD looks FAB on you!!!

  16. I think I am in awe just like every one else at the fact that you have 27!! Thats crazy! I only have 1 myself, BUT i collect jeans, right now I have 36 pairs, I LOVE denim. I want to get up to 50 pairs but I barely have room in my closet with the ones I currently have.

    I think you look GREAT in the LBD by the way!!

  17. You look super hot in that dress! When do we get to see the other 26 LBDs? :) I sooooo love that you paired this with blue shoes - what a perfect finishing touch!

    I had almost forgotten about my crazy cardi post. I know I've purchased more since then, I wonder what my current count is LOL.

  18. Oy, you look great in that dress! Don't feel self conscious at all because you're totally rocking it! I love the turquoise heels to give it a nice splash of color without taking attention from the dress.

    I myself have a lot of lbd and cardigans though they're not much of a collection because I actually don't own too much clothes. I like really simple pieces that are versatile.

  19. wow, 27 lbd's is impressive. this one looks really amazing on you and i really like it paired with the blue shoes!

    and your bun a la sophie turned out really well! i tried it but my hair wouldn't fan out. it just flopped over on either side. :\

  20. lovely dress and shoes!xx

  21. Hey! I just found your blog and it is amazing!

    I am following your blog and I hope you will follow mine too!


  22. whoa sexy lady! i definitely spy some cleavage. VS does some amazing things hahaa. i definitely own wayyy too many camel coloured things right now and black pieces always.

  23. LOL... I knew you have a lot of dresses, but 27 of just LBDs alone?!! Haha... but that said, you look amazing in this dress! I wish I can fill out a dress like that :P I haven't built up a collection of anything yet, but my number of cardigans owned has exploded exponentially this season!
