You have heard it time and again, but there really is nothing more classic than a Little Black Dress.
In this case, a LBD that can be worn for a night out or to run errands makes for an A+ in my book. While I was in New York, I told you I popped into OTTE in Nolita. Other than the fact I wanted to move into the cozy store and make all of the goodies inside my own, I decided to focus on finding a classic piece that I could bring home with me. For some time I have been lusting over the Ellen Dress because of its unique, but oh so classic silhouette. As I was shuffling through the perfectly organized racks, I came across the one; a black xs. It was meant to be. Let’s just say, I now want the Ellen Dress in every color and pattern.
Other than the fact that I wanted to walk out of the store in my new dress (that might have been a little embarrassing), I did wear it the very next day for my last Fashion Week shows and meeting, then again on the airplane with a crop sweater and these shoes, then again when I got back to Dallas for date night with Patrick. Other than my obsession with the Ellen Dress, other Otte Signature pieces are high on my wish list like; this amazing fur vest, the Sylvia Pebble Top, the Jackie Dress, this hat, and this sweater.
