Welcome to Wardrobe Wednesday! I’m delighted and honoured to be taking over the hosting duties from Kelly at Kiwi Womens Style. Every Wednesday, you are invited to share a fashion post with the Wardrobe Wednesday Glam Squad. Anything you like … as long as it is fashion related.
Share an outfit you loved and tell us why it made you feel so fabulous. Perhaps share a favourite piece that you’ve styled for different occasions. One piece styled several different ways. Perhaps be brave and share the story of a piece you just can’t make work – the Wardrobe Wednesday Glam Squad may just be able to offer some suggestions!
If you’re playing along with Nikki at Styling You for #everydaystyle, you are very welcome to join in the Wardrobe Wednesday fun. Wardrobe Wednesday is all about sharing fashion inspiration – we love everyday style just as much as we love date night glamour.
What I Wore | The Perfect LBD
I absolutely love the first day of school – so I celebrated by rocking the perfect LBD. I know I’m going to miss hanging out with my little dude, Boyo, because he is fabulous company. Yet … the thought of uninterrupted time is, shall we say, somewhat appealing. The new year is always filled with possibilities and opportunities. It doesn’t feel as though the new year has really kicked in until school starts.
I couldn’t resist the opportunity to get dressed up for the first day of school. My plan for the day involved coffee with the Gorgeous Girls, a little spot of op shopping on the way home and some terribly trashy TV that is simply not viewable during the school holidays … but the occasion deserved a gorgeous outfit, don’t you think? I felt gorgeous and comfortable in the perfect LBD.
The Perfect LBD | the company
During the school holidays, I was lucky enough to meet the fabulous Amanda Watson from The Perfect LBD.
Oh my! I was captivated by Amanda’s charm and passion and amazing vision. She took the concept of the Perfect LBD – the Little Black Dress – and reinvented it whilst retaining the classic style that the perfect LBD evokes.
Amanda worked with a fabulous pattern designer, Kylie van Wanrooy, the designer behind the amazing Beyond the Sea Swimwear label I introduced you to recently, to bring the vision of The Perfect LBD to life.
A worldwide search resulted in the discovery of the perfect soft jersey from which to create the perfect LBD – light enough to travel with and to wear in comfort, but just heavy enough to drape in a flattering manner, without the need for a slip. This premium quality silky soft jersey holds its own against other much more expensive brands.
The collection is based on timeless silhouettes, which were then adapted to suit a wide variety of body shapes, with a view to enhancing or minimising the bits we want to show off and the bits we prefer to be draped in flattering fabric.
I am impressed with the attention to detail as befits a classic like the perfect LBD.
The Perfect LBD | the online boutique
Quite simply, The Perfect LBD online boutique is so easy to use. There is no guessing or wondering as an amazing Dress My Shape guide aids the selection of the most complimentary styles for your figure type.
You can view The Perfect LBD range by a variety of options:
- Dress My Shape – Hourglass, Inverted Triangle, Oval, Pear, Column
- Shop by Style – Classic LBD, Casual LBD, Work LBD, Party LBD, Glam LBD

Each dress style is featured with a 360 degree spin feature so you can see the dress from every single angle, complemented by a front, back and side image, as well as a line drawing so the details of each dress are easy to see.
Oh, and did I mention the absolutely gorgeous Kerrie Hess illustrations?
The Perfect LBD is the perfect place to buy an almost bespoke piece for your wardrobe and lifestyle without the bespoke price tag.
The Perfect LBD | Wearing the Daisy dress
I was lucky enough to be given The Perfect LBD dresses for trial and review purposes. You have no idea how much fun I had checking out the gorgeousness on The Perfect LBD online boutique and narrowing down my options. The wishlist function came in very handy!
Finally, I whittled down my choices to the Daisy, modelled here. The Daisy is a mock wrap, sleeveless dress with deep frilled cross-over neckline, A-line skirt and separate belt. The deep frill acts like a cape and is oh so elegant. As it is sleeveless, it is a lovely way to cover the tops of the arms yet feel a little bit cooler.
I added a pop of colour with red clog sandals from Target, and because I can’t resist accessorising, I switched the self fabric belt for a wide Jacquie E snakeskin print belt.
I’m going to wear this dress in the cooler seasons layered over coloured tights and a Verily long sleeved fitted slip dress, with ankle boots.
I also selected the Lila, a gorgeous batwing maxi dress, which I’m saving for another day to show off to you!
