While the little black dress is a wardrobe staple, I think women (D.C. women in particular) rely to heavily on this classic cocktail selection. But, despite these feelings, I’ve decided to kick off Holiday Week 2010 with a fabulous black lace dress that is both stylish and affordable.

This black dress is anything but basic. I love the lace overlay and the pleated waist detail. If you’re pear shaped or a bit square in the mid-section, this is the dress for you.
You could wear a necklace, but when you have a neckline this pretty, I see no reason to spoil it. I kept the accessories simple and tonal because I want the dress to get all the attention. And why shouldn’t it?
