The New Season Little Black Dress

November 9, 2015



LBD – Isabella in black by Leina Broughton currently 25% off with code ‘alifeunstyled’

While the Little Black Dress (LBD) is a wardrobe staple for many women, myself included, I only ever have one or two hanging in my wardrobe. At this point in time I think I have three, mostly to cater for the various climates I find myself in and of course to accommodate various levels of sexiness! I wasn’t on the market for a new LBD when this one magically found its way into my wardrobe (and yes Patrick, I’m sticking to this story) but I’m beginning to notice that it continues to tick all the boxes of what I need in a LBD.


The dress easily transitions between various climates and across seasons. It’s conservative but can be spruced up when you’re after something  a little more sexy. I’ve found with a change of shoes and letting down my hair I can go from a business meeting to my favourite bar for date night with Patrick. The dress has no bells and whistles, you slip it on without zippers or buttons or ties but it has two pockets! At last LBD that doesn’t sacrifice aesthetics for functionality or vice versa but adequately covers both bases.


And best of all – in case you didn’t know – I’m pregnant and this dress allows me to hide or accentuate my bump as I wish. I’m no expert but I think this is in part thanks to the fabric and the clever panelling in the dress. This makes it perfect if you’re trying to enhance certain body parts over others. I’ve filled the dress out a little more lately, but here’s a post where I’m wearing the same dress in the same size but in electric blue and I still think that on a less curvy me it stills looks pretty fabulous!



Oh, and of course, twirl factor is important in any dress – this one passes the twirl test!

As a huge thank you for everything, Leina Broughton was kind enough to offer the readers of A Life Un-Styled a 25% off discount for the Isabella dress in electric blue, black, and night garden. All you need to do is enter the code ‘alifeunstyled’ at checkout to enjoy your discount. Offer valid until November 30, 2015. I don’t make any money off of this, it’s simply a way to offer you something for you friendship and readership. Happy twirling!
