ClaustroClothic #20: The Little Black Dress.

When I was younger, I had a huge thing for the aesthetic of what I thought Sex and The City was all about. Fancy women running around, asserting their empowerment… Probably wearing a little black dress. As I got older, I realized that what I was actually enjoying the aesthetic of was Girlfriends, which was our version of Sex and The City. I thought I wanted to be a lawyer in college after taking one semester of Business Law. It would be my excuse to walk into a room full of people in a little black dress everyday, but as I got older, it became difficult to find the dress that I felt was the dress. 

I found my little black dress at the thrift store. I wanted something simple that hugged my curves and honey… It took forever. I didn’t want a super swooping neckline and I thought that was an easy stipulation… Was it ever easy? Is it? As I thought deeper, it had to be a dress perfect for all occasions and all hairstyles too. It had to really speak for me when I stepped into a room. In addition to it making me look aw dropping, I needed it to be durable. Let’s be honest. I was never gonna be a lawyer, but I knew I was gonna be a photographer. I needed to know I could bend in this dress without flashing the world.

The stretch fabric in this material started screaming my name the moment I slipped into it. So I can bend, I can sit, and still look amazing doing it? Perfect! From there, it was about styling myself with it. I wanted to look like a vintage pinup girl slipped her way into modern day and may kill you if you stand close enough. Whenever I thought vintage as a little girl, I envisioned having a round bag. That to me was when you know you’ve truly made it. Going through Marshall’s one day, I found a Nichole Miller makeup bag. I’d seen quite a few Nichole Miller bags, but I’d never seen something so great and the nameplate was ROSE GOLD.

Sold. 

Digging it?

I love this look. I’m probably gonna wear it five hundred times with the coming of the new year. In case you’re trying to figure out what sort of little black dress is perfect for you, check out this and this. They’re helpful info graphics to look at dresses based on your body type.

I travel as a photographer, I write novels , and I fan girl a lot. I have an unnecessary attachment to all things 80s punk, 90s hip hop, and girl power. I typically write in the same tone that I talk in so you should probably be prepared for that. Just saying.

    Your photos quality is sooo good! :O I can understand what do you mean. It seems that a little black dress is just a black dress. But it’s not. It depends so much on material, on cut, on details… I have found my dream, knee-lengh dress with a bit puffy shoulders and highlighted waist maybe 7 years ago! It’s a bit worn out now… I’m still looking for a new perfect little black dress ^_^
