LWD: Little White Dress

We all know that the most versatile and reliable item in a woman's closet is the LBD:  little black dress.  It fits every occasion, from a wedding to Christmas party to hot date to family dinner.  It hides all flaws and accentuates our best assets.  It lasts from season to season, without fail.

But what about the LWD:  little white dress?  White has become appropriate to wear year round...almost no one pays attention to the outdated rule that you shouldn't wear white after Labour Day.  Just like the LBD, the LWD can work for any occasion.  You can dress it up with jewellry and accessories, you can dress it down with a blazer or flats or a pashmina.  I started playing around with white dresses on Polyvore the other day, and this is what I came up with.

By the way, if you don't have Polyvore yet, you should join!  It's a fun way to create your own outfits from literally thousands of items sourced from fashion websites.  Kind of like dressing up paper dolls with different pieces like you did when you were a kid.
