'party six variations of the #LBD (from left to right)
numero uno: the occasion: dinner with the girls, dinner with a friend, afterwards club.  The classic baby doll: A-line mini with patent leather mary janes.

le deux: invitation to lunch with Madame Salsbury or tea with Lady Violet: knee-length hemline, low- heeled pumps keeps the dowdy away. Really. Oh, that 70's show.

trois: I'd totally go to the theater in a sheath dress and rad boots or a play, dinner afterwards, drinks, a nice bar: a sleeveless mini requires mega awesome boots. Naked arms need covered legs. That's just the way it is.

four: Sunday brunch: a flowy chiffon A-line long sleeved LBD: if you had too much to eat during the past few days, nobody will know. Wear with black boots or chocolate brown suede boots please

le cinquieme: I often ask myself: what would Sophia wear. Sophia Coppola. This. Demure with movement (heavy silk dress) with wedge sandals for that touch of delicate. Theater, tea, meeting with your banker...anything goes in this.

sechs: for the girl who doesn't mind waiting in line while the cold blows around her ankles. Hey, at least show off those ankles so yes, party like it's 1999: if you feel sparkly, go sparkly down to the tips of your glitter encrusted toes.

the coat: the furry coat (length: mid-thigh) works wonderfully with every one of the dresses.

the clutch: you choose. A splash of color can be nice. Suit your mood.
