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?

xoxo, Jenna

    ahhh I need that black maxi! I can tell I would absolutely LIVE in that. I have a black maxi, but it’s got cutouts and is definitely more of a “going out” dress than it is an every day type of dress. need this!

      Thanks girl! This one is perfect for everyday and you can dress it up or down- would absolutely recommend it!

    I’m wearing a casual LBD today and was loving how easy it was this morning. I used to have a black maxi some years back but don’t know what happened to it – I need to update! Also, love this shoot location and your pink lips!

      Thanks Kristen! Is there anything better than a black dress? Was fun to take some pics over in Charlestown and explore a different neighborhood!

    Wow. You look lovely. I too avoided the maxi, it’s all about finding the right one. That LBD is definitely the one for you! 🙂 Love the background too – where are you?

      Thank you! You should try it too! Took these pictures in Charlestown at the Navy Yard! Fun area to explore 😀

        I’ll share if I do. Thanks for the location. I’m going to have to check out Charlestown – have only been there 2x! Shameful if I admitted to the amount of time I’ve lived in the Boston area!!

      Isn’t the black maxi the best? So easy! Bummer about the Sephora box- I haven’t had the best luck with beauty boxes like that either!
