TMM Fashion: The Plain Black Dress

#fashion #ootd


Every woman should own a black dress that they can use over and over again. With just a change of accessories and shoes, you can own it a hundred different ways. I love this black dress I got from a bazaar. It was a bargain for Php 450! It's amazing what you find in bazaars!

I just love going to bazaars. I mean, don't you?

If you are not so much of a black clothing type of person, try introducing a little black into your wardrobe. The color black has an instant slimming effect and can always look classy and chic. DO NOT go over board though. Too much black can easily create a dark and depressing look, so try pairing it with other colors.

I had an event tonight and the attire was "little black dress". It may not be little or tight, but I love the almost conservative length of the skirt. It may be loose, but I love the peasant sleeves with a little extra oomph with the cutout detail.


I love this dress. I can also wear it during the day with a pair of colorful wedges with matching purse. Black dresses are so versatile because you can wear them a thousand different ways. It always looks dressed and put together.

Don't be afraid to wear loose fitting dresses. As long as it is really the style. Don't buy dresses that is 3 sizes bigger than you because this will look ill fitting. The stitching on sleeves will go passed your shoulders, and the length will be off. As long as the style is meant to be loose, sport it!

Ladies, who says that little black dresses always have to be so tight? With my body type, most of the time, I stick to flowing fabrics. Materials that lightly drape over my frame, I noticed, is the best way to go because it has enough structure to follow along my body's contours without smothering my wobbly bits.

Wear sky-high heels, these will elongate your body and give the illusion of a slimmer silhouette!

    1. BIG IS BEAUTIFUL! Don't ever tell you otherwise! I used to feel so ashamed of my body and I used to just laugh about it and go along with the chubby, fat jokes pretending that I didn't care but inside I was crushed. But I learned that no one can make you feel low, only yourself. Confidence is key! It's just like what Paris Hilton said: "No matter what a woman looks like, if she's confident, she's sexy". ♥
