For Date Night this week, Rich is choosing the restaurant and I’m choosing this Geo Velvet Lace Dress by Shoshanna. In terms of classic-but-not-boring little black dresses that you’re never upset to find hanging in your closet, this one ranks near the very top. You know those dresses you spot and instantly know that they just make sense for you? This was one of those moments. Come to me, my darling.
The dress itself features a soft geometric lace pattern in velvet (winter’s favorite texture, hello), with a slightly poofy sleeve and a delicately flounced skirt. This is fun femininity in LBD form and I’m in. love. with. it. It will pair effortlessly with beautiful hosiery if it’s chilly out, and any leather jacket or inky-hued maxi coat if it’s really chilly out. All of the interest is self-contained in the dress, so everything else is incredibly easy.
By the way, Shoshanna as a brand is one to keep top of mind for pretty much all of your holiday dressing needs, from Date Night to anything beyond. It doesn’t hurt that this dress is 30% off with free shipping and returns, either, just sayin’.
I know I don’t need to convey to you the importance of having a few strong LBD’s in your closet at all times, but allow this velvet lace number to reiterate how wise I am. Its classic shape allows for essentially any evening bag and shoe pairing you’re in the mood for, while the addition of velvet lace keeps the dress out of boring territory. It’s almost like the dress makes its own jewelry, meaning you can feel free to just throw on your favorite lip color and call an Uber.
Make Date Night (and the LBDs that go with them) a priority this holiday season. There are so many fun happenings and events to enjoy, and the last thing you want is to wake up on New Year’s Day thinking you missed quality time during a really fun season together. I’ve handled the difficult decision (the dress, obvi), reservations are now up to you.
