The little black dress aka LBD

The little black dress something as essential as underwear for a woman. Every woman should have at least one little black dress. I have about seven, excessive you say? I say necessary:) Ever wonder when the term “little Black Dress” was coined? Before the 1920’s did you know that a black dress were considered indecent to wear unless you were in mourning?

So when did it all change?

Because of so many deaths during the Spanish Flu (1918) it became more common for women to appear in black dresses. In the 1926 Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel designed a little black dress, which was featured in American VOGUE magazine  “a sort of uniform for all women taste” which still holds true today. And then LBD was coined.


Do you have a little black dress? 

That’s The BUZZ!!
