When it comes to dressing for Holiday parties, there's one staple we can all rely on, The Little Black Dress, universally flattering, universally appropriate (for the most part) and the easy choice.
Of course all that practicality has to be balanced with something…hence The Very Tall Shoes.
Outfit perfection, not just for the Holidays, but all year round!
All the dresses pictured above are vintage – so if you love one, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase, there's a dress and a pair of shoes for evey budget (excepting maybe a zero budget…hell, it happens!) so go forth in your Little Black Dress & Very Tall Shoes and you'll surely not stumble (disclaimer: metaphorically)

So true! I have a simple black dress with spaghetti straps from about 1994 that I still wear frequently. Nothing sets off a black dress like a fantastic pair of shoes.

I don’t think that when people grow up, they will become more broad-minded and can accept everything. Conversely, I think it’s a selecting process, knowing what’s the most important and what’s the least. And then be a simple man.

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
