Top 20 LBD’s For Every Occasion

Little Black Dress_What Would V Wear_Vanessa Lambert_Chicago_Top Bloggers 2016_8

On Monday’s I wear black…Continue reading why I’m obsessed with LBD’s, and check out my Top 20 “Black Dresses For Every Occasion”.


A little black dress (LBD) never goes out of style. I love the simplicity of a black dress. You always look pulled together, not matter what. On a different note, if you follow me on Snapchat @WhatWouldVWear you probably know already that I’ve hurt my arm last week. I have a big wound on my left arm which made it difficult to work on my blog. My doctors say that it might take up 6 months for my arm to be fully healed/recovered but at least it does’t hurt as bad anymore. I was able to shoot this weekend, and I’m able to type again – yet very slow.



As always, thanks much for reading and have a fabulous Monday!

    I kept on coming to your blog on Friday and now I understand why I did not see a post. Am sorry dear, I wish you a quick recovery. LBDs are a classic, they portray elegance, chic and edge. I love the different ones you have showcased and when in doubt wear black because one can never go wrong in black! Get well soon darling! Love and Love!

    Ooooh, dear V.! It’s not good to hurt your arm and now to be fully recovered in 6 months, not being able to type very much! Please, concentrate on your arm and if you need anything, any help with the blog or whatsoever, please count on me! Really! I am glad that you don’t feel such a bad pain anymore, though I believe the pain is there – try to relax your arm as much as possible! Well, now the LBD – true, it’s so lovely! I loved your picture, such a beautiful combo – dress and this loooovely jacket! Hope you have a good week, dear V.! Hugs and kisses and good vibes!

    On to your outfit, which is gorgeous! And I just love that jacket, it’s such a pretty piece. And you right an lbd never goes out of style and you can never have too many.
    Have a great week!

    Oh no Vanessa so sorry to hear about your hurt arm, happy to hear it’s at least feeling better!! Take care and take it easy, it’s okay to take a break when we need one. On another note I love LBD’s and you picked so many chic pieces here! I’m in love with that first lace-up one (I featured that on my blog too last week, great minds!) & a lace LBD is always perfect for more formal events. Have a wonderful day my friend, sending hugs & kisses your way:) xoxo

    Sorry to hear that you hurt your arm. It sucks that it’s going to take that long to heal but with the way that time is moving I’m sure 6 months will be over before we know it. Love the black dresses you’ve picked out – especially the one with the lace up detail.


  31. April 11, 2016 / 11:17 PM

    Love the dresses you picked out! It’s so true – LBD never go out of style. Hope you feel much better, mahal!


  32. April 11, 2016 / 11:42 PM

    Omg soooo sorry to hear about your hurt arm – hope it heals faster as it should! But you look so lovely though in this look Vanessa – Have a lovely week!
