For a girl who loves fashion, I'm embarrassed to say that until now, I haven't really had a go-to little black dress. I have a few black dresses in my closet, but none that I really love (you'd think I'd get rid of them!) or that are very versatile.

When I saw this shift dress in TopShelf Boutique during the event I co-hosted recently, I knew it had to come home with me. Shifts are the most flattering style on my body and are also super versatile. This dress is literally a blank slate and can be styled hundreds of different ways. It feels good to have a dress that I can wear for almost anything!
