So I have this “go to” LBD that my friends and I just love. I got it many years ago in San Francisco and it’s been a loyal friend to many wearers for many occasions. It’s Tahari, like the real thing Tahari, before they introduced some lower priced sister lines… black, knit, polo style color with no buttons… shows just a little, not a lot and can be worn almost any time of the year.
Sadly, after the last loan to one of it’s biggest fans, my perfect LBD was sent to the dry cleaners. Unfortunately for the dress, the fan and myself, the dry cleaning solution left some weird “oil spill” stains. Even more unfortunate, I noticed this flaw just recently, almost 2 years after it’s last wear so we probably have no recourse, as far as the dry cleaners are concerned. I would be devastated if I actually fit into it right now, which I do not… at this moment, anyway.
So I am now on the hunt for a new LBD, something casual enough to wear with knee boots for day but dressy enough to throw on with some black sling backs for night. If you find something you think might replace this former staple, leave a link in the comments for me!
