For one who has never been the most conventional dresser, when I was due at an event that called for a
"little black dress"
I found myself at a loss.
But alas, I soon learned that the
ever-flattering shade of ebony
just needed a tiny twist to make me feel at home, whilst still retaining its classic appeal.
