Date Night: The Modern LBD

I’ve been doing a major closet clean out as I start to pack up my apartment, and that has sparked some new questions on what my “taste” really is. This post from our friend Nichole Ciotti at Vanilla Extract is the perfect combo of classic and sexy for a date night.

A girl can’t just have one LBD. There’s the casual LBD, the fancy LBD, the business-y LBD, and my personal favorite, the modern LBD. I wore this number to our friends’ wedding in Napa this past weekend.

I was set on wearing a floral dress, but could not stop thinking about this one from the moment I tried it on. Let me tell ya why: 1) The cut-outs. They’re a little sassy, but still modest enough to wear to a wedding. 2) The dress has pockets (!!!).

About half way through the ceremony, I returned my bag to our room so I could be hands-free while dancing. It was so nice to be able to carry my phone and lipstick without having to ask B to hold my things. This LBD is great for almost any occasion and the fit and flare cut is very flattering.
