The black dress is a wardrobe staple that lives in many women’s closets. It’s the dress you grab when you want to feel a little extra sexy for a special occasion. The dress that clings in allll the right places. And it never goes out of style. However, I came to the realization that I did not currently own a single black dress. (Plenty of dresses – just no slinky, black ones.) So, it was time to change that!

This dress is a bit outside the norm for me in dress selections. But the unique cut of this dress is what I like most about it. I love how it looks like a completely different dress depending on what angle you are looking at it from. And the fact that the front has a wrap detail makes it flattering around the midsection (and helps hide a rather large meal – which is what I had worn it for that evening). Oh, and I can wash it in my washing machine – no dry cleaning required! Needless, to say I am smitten with this slinky, black dress from Tobi. (However, I did have to pin/tape the front of the dress to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions – FYI.)

It is funny, though, how my style changes throughout the years. I don’t believe this is a dress I would’ve wanted to wear in public a year ago – too clingy and too low cut. Maybe it has to do with living in Sydney – I don’t look out of place or even all that dressy for a Saturday night at a restaurant here. Or maybe I frankly don’t care all that much what others think of me anymore. Whatever it is…it certainly means my wardrobe is expanding!

Do you notice your style changing at all throughout the years? Or does it remain constant? And do you own a black dress? Let me know in the comments!

      Haha! I totally pictured your catcall being delivered with the utmost respect. 😉 And thank you so much, Sara! I was a bit peeved about the rain that day…but it did kind of work with these photos, I guess! Thank you. 🙂

    I’m afraid I’d have to wear a girdle to look good in that kind of dress, but you on the other hand look fabulous! I have gotten a little more confident in the last couple of years, I don’t worry so much about necklines as I used to. Have fun fishing! 🙂

    Marlin fishing sounds interesting! And by the way, this Tobi dress is amazing and you look stunning! And you can wash it at home, how cool is that? I loved the dress, and the pictures are great, dear Lindsey! By the way, before I go on, thank you so much for your support… (I still didn’t figure out how to answer there 🙂 I guess we have all some experiences like those… nevertheless, it hurts, but you know what, maybe it’s better this way. I liked to know that you can dress that way in Sydney, and my style, if I have one, also changed along the years. You are right,maybe we just like some different clothes, maybe we just changed our minds. In any case, changes are good, most of the time. I loved your outfit! Hope you have a lovely weekend, waiting for the marlin stories 🙂

      Oh, it was interesting – that’s for sure! Haha. I’ll hopefully have that up on the blog next week. Aw, and thank you so much, Denise! And I do hope things are getting better for you. That is never a fun situation. 🙁 I do hope you have a lovely weekend!

    You look gorgeous in this little black dress, Lindsey! I love how it hugs your silhouette and sits perfectly on your shoulders. You look truly stunning.
    When it comes to personal style, I think mine changed a lot when I was pregnant. It is really challenging to remain stylish when you feel big. Otherwise my style became more simple and feminine as I grew older.
    Have a wonderful weekend, dear!

      Oh gosh, thank you so much, Miri! You are far too kind! And oh yes, I can imagine my style would change during pregnancy as well. I really adore your style! I hope you have a wonderful weekend too! 🙂

    You look AMAAAAAAZING in that dress! Hot stuff! 🙂

    I would say that my style has stayed pretty consistent over the years, but it still is evolving slightly. I find that my confidence has a lot to do with it…the more confident I feel the more daring my style choices tend to be.
