most things that get called classic aren't.  black dresses are.

Every woman has her little black dress.
Timeless sexy,but not vulgar classic.

I heart my black dresses!  I must have at least four . . . even wore one to a U2 gig last summer.  :)

OMG Hugo....it is a MUST for every woman.  Timeless, classy & sexy all at the same time. Gavin Friday did a song about the little black dress with Bono & Edge doing the background vocals.  ;)

I'm on an annoyingly long hunt for the perfect vintage LBD. I refuse to get one new, 'cause it's not as eco-friendly and I don't really care for the styles right now, but it's taking forever to find my dream dress. ::)

I agree....simple black dresses are incredible!

Though, it must be noted that it's the lady that makes the dress...not the other way around  8)

reading this inspired me to do a bit of poking around. found a site called Vintageous. damn near every black dress they had was marked SOLD, but this one was available for about $150. It's rayon, by the way.

Yeah, that's one of the sites I've found, so far. I'm watching it and another one like a hawk for an LBD I both love and can afford. :D
