The LBD- normally you think of it as standing for little black dress, but in this case, I mean the LONG black dress. A great black maxi is a definitely one of my closet staples. For years I avoided maxi dresses as someone on the shorter side. Luckily, I embraced my fears and tried on a black maxi dress a few years ago- and just like that I was in love!
A black maxi dress is a staple for a few reasons. First, it pretty much takes no brain power to get dressed when wearing one because you throw it on and any accessory matches. Along those same lines, the second reason the L(ong)BD is a staple is because you can accessorize it a million different ways! Third, if you are a shorty like me, a black maxi (or any solid color maxi) will help you look much taller. I’m always down for something that makes me look a bit taller 🙂
Two of my favorite subscription services, Ditto and Rocksbox, help me keep my sunnies and jewelry on constant rotation- and give me something new to pair with my black maxi each month. If you haven’t heard of these services before, they are seriously amazing! With Ditto you can rent designer sunglasses for only $24 a month- switching them out as often as you’d like. Featuring amazing brands like Karen Walker, Ray Ban, Prada and Vera Wang, you’ll get to try out and rent some amazing pieces like the ones I am wearing here for a fraction of their retail price. You obviously also need some jewels to go with your sunglasses and Rocksbox has you covered there. For a steal of $19 a month, you will get three pieces of jewelry with your subscription. All three I am wearing here are from my most recent box. The jewels are gorgeous and you can switch them out as often as you like too!
Like what you hear? You can try out both of these subscriptions free for your first month! For Ditto, use code BOSTONCHICPARTY for your first month free and use code bostonchicpartyxoxo to get some sparkles delivered to you each month with Rocksbox.
Now it’s your turn… Is the black maxi dress a staple in your closet? What are your favorite subscription services?
