Little Twists on the Little Black Dress

If there's one clothing essential that's always in style, it is the little black dress. Like shoes and lip gloss, I can never seem to get enough black dresses; they're just so classic and flattering that they're hard to resist. But why go with basic black when you could get a little black dress with character? Here are some of my favorite black dress styles in stores right now, each with its own unique twist.

I was actually thisclose to buying the Vivienne Tam one but I decided against it because the occasion was a wedding and I wanted to be a bit lively. But, it was so precious; I had a hard time walking away from it.
