The Bottega LBD is divine! LOVE the trusty LBD, and am relying on my Nathan Jenden for this Sunday, when I go to Melbourne for an awards ceremony for hubby...somehow it seems to stretch to fit my 8 month pregnant belly! MAGIC! :)

Panty Buns said...

That is quite a variety of styles. It's always good to have a couple of different black outfits in one's wardrobe so there's just the right one for the circumstance or occasion, whether it's somber, fun, formal, or just to look good.

WendyB said...

I have my share of LBDs but prefer color for night...

CC said...

The Pucci, Dolche & Gabbana and Herve Leger are my favorites. Ah, if only we were all super rich, right?
Great post, CC, as always! :)

Treacle said...
