Once in a while you just need that one little black dress that makes you feel good about life. The kind that you put on and instantly turn into a sex kitten power bitch that could slay a person with a well pointed look. I’ve a number of LBD’s but they aren’t anywhere near as worthy of sex kitten power bitch as I wanted.
I saw Danielle Vanier wear this LBD on her blog from ASOS Curve (she’s also wearing the bag I featured on my last post – read it here) and I fell in love. It was exactly what I was after – curvy, and clingy in the right places (for me anyway) and a brilliant low cut neckline. It was worthy of THE title… so of course I had to buy it!
The obi wrap on this dress is the selling point for me! It is a built in belt wrap that you cross over at the front and tie at the back. It gives you killer waist definition and makes your boobs stand to attention! The loose folds over the stomach area hides a multitude of sins if you’re not confident about your tummy and – now get this – it has POCKETS!! POCKETS TO HOLD THE NUMBERS OF ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WILL WANT TO GIVE YOU THE SEXY TIME.
I especially love the shoulder detail on this dress – it’s funny how a little flap of material can make the structure of the dress change completely! The one annoying thing about this dress though is the sewing on the neckline. It unfolds all the time and looks untidy, so I think a bit of magiweb would do the trick and hold it down. I think this might just be a fault on my dress though, so don’t let it put you off purchasing.
But it isn’t all power bitchery and sex kittening, you must remember to have a laugh god damn it!
