Let's Chat LBDs

I didn't intend to have another shopping spree, but my mother came into town for a quick visit, and what is a visit to Houston without a little shopping and dining? We visited several of my favorite restaurants (Bebe's Cajun, Junior League Tea Room, DaCapo's) as well as a new place in The Woodlands. It's baby Beau's first birthday this week, and since I'll miss the party, I went to the 'burbs for a visit and dinner.

Of course Mom and I hit all of the usual stops (Hobby Lobby) as well as a couple of new ones (I'd never been to Tuesday Morning). We stopped in Neiman Marcus so I could try on a few dresses and gowns for some upcoming galas I am attending (Pink Door, Junior League and Starlight - I'm on the board!). I didn't find any fancy dresses that fit...but I did find another absolutely perfect Little Black Dress. This David Meister number...

I can't find an online photo that really shows it off, but let me tell you...it's absolutely perfect. And this is coming from a girl who already has three absolutely perfect LBDs! All of them are perfect for different things, though. However, this one seems like it will fit the bill for almost any occasion. It is has the smallest bit of ruching on each side of where the waist nips in (perfect for hiding when I've had to much to eat!), a very flattering wide-but-not-too-low v-neck, and 3/4 sleeves to keep it seasonless.

I already know that I'll be able to wear it to work with my sensible peep-toes and pearls, possibly with a cardigan or pashmina. It will also work for dates with my Christian Louboutins...concerts with my suede booties...beach walks with my leather flip flops. Aah! Just when I tell myself I have enough black dresses for every single occasion, I find another that I just can't live without!

What is your favorite LBD?
