What's in your closet? This blog's objectives are to share what I have classified as the Nice, No Thanks, Noteworthy, Need and Necessary in our closets in order to be well-dressed. Together we'll discover what women and men are wearing around the world, whether it's fashionable or not. Posts will include choices in different clothing categories and accessories including shoes, handbags, jewelry, scarves and ties and other such accessories.
Clothing Choices: Little and Black and a Dress NICE
One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a little black dress.
— Karl Lagerfeld

When many of us think of the LBD, we think of cocktail hour or evening wear. The LBD can be worn morning, noon and night - to work or to entertain or to be entertained.
When a little black dress is right, there is nothing else to wear in its place.
- Edith Piaf
What is the little black dress?
• a must-have - a wardrobe essential
• constant, reliable and always appropriate
• easy to wear • available in every style imaginable • season-less
Purple shoes to colour block with a little black dress.

• a canvas to colour-block accessories or display a special statement necklace, but that's more an evening thing • a medium to portray the woman you are
This woman was in the Bordeaux airport, mid-afternoon, at arrivals last fall. Excuse the quality of the photo but I was trying to be discrete! I don't know who she was or who she was waiting for but the person landing in Bordeaux should have been impressed with this reception. Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.
- Coco Chanel
