History of an LBD


Despite calling myself a fashion blogger, the LBD is something I've only just begun to experience within the last year, being pale and freckly I've always thought black made me look washed out and I automatically swayed towards blues and neutrals whilst dress shopping.
However. This year I've embraced the dark side and have shelled out on the odd little black dress....

So where did the nation's love of the lbd begin and when did it become so iconic? Well Kaleidoscope have created this lovely image following it's history, I don't think I can decide on a fave era - what's yours?

  18. Good old little black dresses! I particularly like the photo of you on the top right, with the embroidered/embellished(?) collar? It's lovely.

    And hmmm my favourite of all the era's, is a toughie, I'm gonna go for either 1960's, or even though she does look pretty dated - Victoria Beckham's 90's look.. I do like the simplicity of it though it is a bit on the short side!
