I love color, and hardly have anything black in my wardrobe. So when I finally did splurge on a black evening dress for a special night out, it definitely couldn’t be one that was all-out black and boring.

I found this beauty on the shelves of Debenhams just a week or so before Christmas. It comes under the Miss Selfridge label, and what attracted me to it was the colorful floral embroidery right on the front.

As you can see from my recent posts, December has been a very indulgent month. The foodie in me is taking center stage, and its starting to show around the midriff big time!

The colour black really does hide a multitude of sins, and an LBD (‘Little Black Dress’) in my opinion, is a closet essential every girl should own.

I found this gem of a dress at Anotah, the rather quirky, outlandish fashion label hailing from Kuwait. Their collections are far from mainstream, and they never shy away from the use of unusual colour combinations. My kind of place I tell you!

This however, one is a plain, plain black.
