Ode to the Little Black Faithful Dress

 




 
 
 If I know anything in this world, it's that whenever I slip on the Interlock Asymmetrical Dress from American Apparel, I am due for a good time. It is perfect for a "holy sh*t I'm running late and have no idea what I'm wearing" Bachelorette Party Outfit, it also hugs your curves perfectly while you're asking a guy *how he likes his eggs in the morning or it merely complements a lovely Saturday afternoon spent taking JELL-O shots on a downtown balcony.

Do you get the drill? It's a fun dress that's perfect for Summer with no muss & no fuss. I like to call her "Old Faithful" for her lack of complication, her ease of wear and her willingness to fluctuate around a potential +/- 4-pound weight range with ease. Now, I've never actually lost 4 pounds, but I imagine it's the same idea as when you gain.

She's just one of the many, many, MANY reasons that Summer needs to get here soooonnn...

What's your easy-peazy Summer party piece?

*I've never owned this without having a boyfriend so I just like to pretend like I actually ask Boys how they like their eggs in the morning... In actuality, I know exactly how HE likes his eggs: with toast, hashbrowns, sunnyside up, over medium. And he will proceed to eat the meal in bed and get crumbs all over the pillow while he chomps louder than the TV and takes care of his morning throat-clearing. It's sexual and violent, obvi.

Every girl needs a party dress just like this one, that you can throw on and know you look great in.
Mine's actually silver, which means it's will date someday but it's super stretchy and comfortable.. I only paid $25 for it in Hawaii like three years ago and I've worn it to soo many events and always feel fantastic in it.

She's definitely a keeper! Love it!

I should take you up on your tip and invest in a versatile little black dress. I mean, isn't that fashion 101? Figures I'd be behind in that! hahaha

Gorgeous!

You can never go wrong with LBD...Especially like this one, simple yet very chic. & I must say, one shoulder, how very Kardashian like, lol. You looking stunning, not so over the top, just perfect. Since Monday night, I kinda have been on a online shopping spree, saw these black dresses at American Eagle, they are totally calling out to me. Last Spring got these few $13 dresses from H&M, they are so perfect, that I bought backups. They are printed, & very light weight, perfect for my 100 + degree AZ. & LMAO at your description of The Boy.

PS: Thank you for your last comment. I have been listening to Beyonce's "Best I never had" & Rihanna's "Rehab" for the last day or so...& Since I have been in bed all day, I haven't yet mailed out your package, tomorrow for sure.

Always important to have one of these in the closet. I have a black one, different cut, but same idea. And I love the weight fluctuation concept!

LBDs are amazing. They can be dressed up or down so easily.

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

June said...

I completely agree with you that you need that one dress that should be perfect for any event! I am partial to strapless dresses and have one in almost every color! So I keep shuttling between them :)

Ocean Dreams said...

You sexy thing you, lol! But seriously - the black dress is always a great go to. I live vicariously through you. ;)

shesnomartha said...

I NEED that dress!! However, I have 30 lbs to hide....not 4. I have a few but I feel very matriarchal in them...like I should be asking the boys what their 5 year plan is and not how they like their eggs.

Sunny & Star said...

Little black dresses are an absolute must. I own several because they are such a go to piece.

rinniez said...

I was going to post a comment about the dress but instead...
bahahahahahahahahahahaha to your description of the boys morning egg eating habits, especially the part about throat-clearing and crumbs on the pillow! :) xx

rinniez said...

also love your tequila story! ive had those nights too, drinking at 16-17 was always hilarious, i miss being such a cheap drunk :) xx

Tina said...

aww so jealous you have the cutest black dress! i do NOT have a dress like that at all [you know, the one you reach to time and again and it never fails. damn i need one real quick] you look great in yours!!! lol love all the different situations it works perfectly in too!

Rick said...

You look gorgeous in that dress, Caitlin. The perfect outfit for a little fun (and a bit of trouble :)

femmefrugality said...

Cracking up over the eggs! I'm inspired by how you find so many occasions to wear a dress...or maybe ashamed of how few I do. Usually my summer is jeans and a tee/tank, but I think I may have to start wearing more dresses this year.

Fabiana said...

you look amazing!!!You have such a beautiful blog, I'm happy if we can follow each other! I'll be waiting for you!

I wish I had a little black dress like that!

Kara said...

Super super fantastic dress! I might have to invest in it but I'm afraid it would hike up over my bootay and be too short - how tall are you? I'm 5'7" with HIPS so it would need to cover the naughty bits, haha.

i need summer and i need a faithful perfect LBD!
