A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to go down to Washington D.C. for the unveiling of White House Black Market’s special Inaugural Dress Collection. It’s a special collection of formal dresses that they create every four years, taking inspiration from the iconic style of America’s First Ladies. As exemplified by the dress I’m wearing today, the collection is right up my alley—a perfect union of classic and modern. Just wait ’til you see the rest of their line up…
WHITE HOUSE BLACK MARKET INAUGURAL DRESS COLLECTION:
You may recognize this dress from my recent 30 Dresses in 30 Days Series, where it was my pick for Night at the Theater. I have to say, one of the best parts about moving back to NYC is having access to the world’s best theater. And as someone who is about as theater-obsessed as they come, I try to take advantage of all that Broadway (and the New York art scene at large) has to offer as often as possible. It was no surprise that the ideal way to spend my Sunday birthday a couple weeks ago was at Jessie Mueller’s amazing performance in the musical Waitress at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. And thanks to my longtime friends at White House Black Market, I had just the dress for the occasion.
Whether you’re looking for the perfect dress for heading to the theater this holiday season (anyone going to the Nutcracker soon?!), holiday parties, New Year’s Eve or something else, this dress collection honestly can’t be beat. With this sequined sheath dress that I’m wearing in particular, the game-changer element for me are the long sleeves during winter months. I also have my eye on this long sleeve beauty for an event in January. Obsessed with that neck detail!
When looking for little black dresses, you usually find sleeveless or short sleeve options. However, I bought a long sleeve LBD for the first time a couple years ago and ended up wearing it like CRAZY. For me, a cocktail dress that covers your arms in the cold, allows you to wear black tights, and still manages to make you feel great is a major coup. With super comfortable stretch factor, very on-trend sequins, and the prettiest v-back, this one just doesn’t get better.
Thanks to White House Black Market for partnering on this post!
