Hope you all had a fantastic, fun-filled and memorable holiday! We sure did and are ready now to get back to things, however we missed our time away from you all! So as we all know, fashions come and go, but the timeless little black dress, or LBD, has survived decades of trends and fads! Introduced in 1926 by Coco Chanel, this icon has not only outlived its creator, but 85, yes 85 years later it can still be found in the closets of women all over the world! Audrey Hepburn as Holly Go Lightly in the classic and beloved film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, wore a sleeveless, floor skimming black sheath dress which was designed by Edith Head and Hubert de Givenchy, the top designers of their time and in 2006 went to auction for $923,187! To think if they only knew what they we’re designing would one day sell for close to 1 million dollars, they wouldn’t believe it, who would?!? One of the beautiful things about the LBD is that it acts as a backdrop for the wearer, it lets us shine! This is why its stayed in style for so many years and is still ultra chic today, most likely it will be for next 50 years to come. So, as you can see, it’s worth investing in a solid, well constructed LBD, in short, medium and past the knee for those elegant affairs / cocktail parties / weddings / etc! You’ll find it’s the best investment piece you will own and with its versatility, you can continue to recreate your look with fashion accessories that play off the dramatic black background! Here is our newest “Corinna” Onyx teardrop earring that offers you all the glamour and shimmer you’re looking for while keeping it all understandably CHIC!
Have a treasure filled day and remember you’re worth it! XO, www.tresorsdeluxe.com
Great post!! I love the historical tidbits. I’m also a big fan of the LBD (and Audrey!). I have about fifty of them in my closet. They’re timeless. Plus, they also allow you do go from day to night without a hitch. Seamless! T. (I’ve also see “Breakfast at Tiffany’s fifty times! Happy New Year!)
Thank you SO much Theadora! So happy to hear you loved the film with the one and only Audrey Hepburn, and have a closet filled with amazing and timeless pieces that will take you anywhere, anytime and with anyone! You are a huge part of the reason we do what we do, you totally get “it” and since you already have a stocked wardrobe with plenty of the LBD, aka “essentials”, we hope we can inspire other amazing women to make the investment and be armed and ready for anything life throws our way! Happy New Year sweetie! 🙂
