Deana-Fication Fashion Soap Box: Invest in a Little Black Dress

Coco Chanel was right - every woman needs to have a little black dress (LBD)in her closet. It's the go-to event outfit that can be dressed up or down and let's be honest, black is a girl's best friend when it comes to looking her best.

Last year I bought one and I've worn it to a few events, and guess what, I'm going to wear it to even more. Yes, there are photos of me floating around in the same outfit, but in this recession, I think it shows the mark of a smart fashionista.

So this holiday season before you run to the mall to buy that New Year's dress or the work Christmas party outfit, check your closet. If you have a LBD, pull it out and look at what shoes and jewelry you have. Why spend another $100+ if you don't have to? You'd be amazed how different a dress looks by changing up your shoes or adding a different necklace... or even wearing your hair differently.

If you don't have a LBD, now's the time to get one. Get one in a timeless and flattering cut, but keep it young and fresh. Get something of quality since you'll have it for a long time.
