Little Black Dress in Cuba

Oh, the little black dress. Perhaps no other piece is as classic, versatile and trendy as the LBD. You can dress them up or down and they come in so many different shapes and sizes. I was on the hunt for a casual little black dress to wear this summer and after searching through quite a few racks at a bunch of stores I came across this one at American Apparel. It’s just what I was looking for – a frock style with a light and breezy material perfect for warmer days. Unfortunately, I ended up shrinking it a little bit in the dryer just before my trip to Cuba. I usually don’t put pieces like this in the dryer but I wanted to wear it on my flight and it wasn’t dry yet! Oh well, this is when my 5’2 height is truly a blessing – it’s pretty short, but not totally inappropriate.
My mom, sister and I went to an all-inclusive resort in Cuba back in May. It was our first time to Cuba and I wore this dress to one of our a la cart dinners. I decided to keep my outfit all-black and paired the dress with these black strappy sandals and my black Kate Spade purse. The only colour was in my nail polish and lipstick, which I think gave a nice touch to the look.
Do you guys have a lbd that you absolutely love for the summer?
