Karl Lagefield said it best.  “One is never over- or under- dressed in a little black dress.”

 A LBD (Little Black Dress) is always classic and timeless.  You can easily dress it up or down.  They always pair perfectly with pearls.   Jacqueline Kennedy stated that “Pearls are always appropriate.”  She will forever be a fashion icon in my book!
