The Little Black Bra

 

 

So we all know about the ‘Little Black Dress by now right – or the LBD as it’s most commonly known as. I mean, it is a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. With the popularity of wearing lingerie as outerwear on the rise it’s only fitting that I introduce you to the ‘Little Black Bra’. Or as I like to call it LBB. I’ve always had a thing for lace, especially when it comes to lingerie. Lace is sexy, feminine, classy and most importantly comfortable. I especially love that the LBB is perfect for ladies like myself who are apart of the itty bitty titty committee. So this post goes out to you all. Growing up society had us ladies believing that lingerie is worn to please men – don’t me wrong, there is nothing wrong with wearing lingerie for that special someone. However, Ditta von Teese said it best “Lingerie is not about seducing men, it’s about embracing womanhood.” I couldn’t agree with her more. See my picks for some of the best little black bra styles out there.

The warm weather is upon us and what better way to kick-start it than in a little black dress. I paired my LBD with some black on black casual sneakers because I didn’t want to do the obvious and wear black pumps. Topped off the look with some cat ears just to add some fun to the look. Side note: Animal ears are a cute alternative to wearing a tiara. It’s fun and playful, yet you’re letting the world know that you’re still an adult.

For the past couple of years I’ve learnt that fashion rules are great and they should be used as a guide to help us polish and refine our own personal style. They shouldn’t be used as your end and be all on how you dress on a daily basis because sometimes mixing it up is so refreshing. The dress is from Sirens Fashion I purchased a couple of years ago and the sneakers are from a sportswear store in an outlet mall. The cat ears were purchased online from one of my go to places to purchase affordable items, Aliexpress. Ever since my closest girlfriend told me about this site, I’ve been hooked! I literally check this site regularly just to see which items I can purchase at a much cheaper price.
