I have no idea how this black midi dress is still available in every size, but it is, and I’m going to go ahead and call that an early Christmas miracle.  I got a similar version of this dress two years ago and wore it until it quite literally started coming apart at the seams, so was thrilled to finally find this replacement.  It comes with the belt that’s shown above, but you can wear the dress with or without it, or even switch up the look by replacing it with a belt from your own arsenal.  The dress is so amazingly versatile, you can throw on a jean jacket and booties for Sunday brunch as easily as you can amp it up with a festive belt like this one (also love this one!) and some extra bling to make it holiday-ready.


Did someone just say HOLIDAY?  Good lord.

    I love a basic midi black dress. I wrote a post about it not too long ago. I believe that it is an essential and every woman should have one as part of their wardrobe 😊 Great post! 👍

    I agree that sometimes the perfect black dress can be hard to find! I love Michael Kors clothing, I have pieces of his that are 3+ years old and still are in style. Great find!

    This is a great dress for giving a presentation in a corporate setting, making a sales call or teaching in front of a class of kids. I think it embodies what you said you are trying to achieve when you changed The Classy Cubicle to Memorandum. It works in many settings but is going back a little to the prior conservative manner of dressing that so many of us loved. Great find, great styling, great post.
