If you don’t love basics, you should! Basics will make your life easier! I love this little Black dress because it is so versatile. A basic piece like this will be the “workhorse” in your closet. You can create so many looks from this one dress. It’s a great piece for under $100.00
This little black dress is by Tee’s by Tina. It is made from a crinkle fabric that is very forgiving – if you know what I mean. If you don’t – then good for you! You’re still going to love it. It fits size 2 to 12. Really it does!!! It’s a very form fitting dress regardless of your size, but that’s a great thing. It grows or shrinks according to your size and body shape.
It’s great to wear alone as a simple tank dress. Change your accessories, change your look. For a really casual look add a cool pair of ankle boots a blue jean jacket and some funky jewelry. Easy, fast and fabulous!

Here’s a really classic look. I have accessorized Samantha with a lovely light-weight Open Weave Travel Wrap by Claudia Nichole. This gives her a beautiful pop of color and she can keep it on or take it off. Then I’ve added the gorgeous Kendra Scott Phara necklace and the Kendra Scott Turquoise Danielle earrings. The addition of a few Shashi bracelets add a delicate pop of color. I’ve chosen to kept her accessories all in the turquoise tones, but you can do the wrap in a bright pink or add a bright colored clutch for an added interest.

This is a more edgy look. Samantha is wearing the same Tee’s by Tina crinkle dress. To that I’ve added a crazy-fabulous feather collar necklace. Made with chicken feathers and tiny shells. It is a really unique addition and makes the look. Then I’ve added a Lava bead and Balinese tassel necklace and a Simple Bead necklace – all by Zacasha. She’s wearing the cool Tribute cuff bracelet by Jan Michaels – done in brass and black onyx. Sam is carrying the Franco over-sized clutch by Joanna Maxham. I love this look! It’s so unique.
I’m sure you can think of a few different ways to accessorize this dress. Right? That’s how you know it will work for you, not just sit in your closet. Think about your next trip. This dress doesn’t wrinkle and folds up into a small square. Ha! It’s fabulous!!! Add a Claudia Nichole Cashmere or cotton Cashmere Poncho to add a pop of color or a great scarf. This goes back to my basic building blocks. It just works! A piece like this makes your job of getting dressed and looking good a lot easier!!!
This is also a fabulous piece for someone who’s expecting. It will grow with you and it fantastic after pregnancy. As your size changes it just moves with you. Don’t you just love that!!!
