A few weeks ago I wrote about a certain little black dress from Tamara Mellon that I fell in love with on the spot. The Tamara Mellon tie-front t-shirt dress {$395} is, quite simply put, a genius design. There's nothing fancy about this piece. It's beautiful and easy by its very nature, yet sophisticated and elegant in its own way - depending on which way you choose to wear it. Yes, this little black dress can be worn any which way you like. In truth, I can't think of how you'd wear it and not love it. And yes, I have proof. This dress has been tried, tested and approved with two thumbs up.

Now you guys know I don't often post selfies or very many outfit posts on the blog. I like to reserve it all for the special sartorial moments. THIS qualifies, as I do believe I've never been more in love with a dress design. The Tamara Mellon t-shirt dress is easy to pack, easy to wear and versatile enough to see you through a whole party weekend with a couple of different wears - oh the versatility presented with a dress that can be worn front to back and vice versa. 

What I'm trying to say here is this.... if you can, buy this dress immediately. It will see you through any number of occasions. Just prepare yourself for the crowds begging to known where you discovered this unique beauty. 

Oh, and don't let size scare you here. I'm wearing a size large in the picture and it fits perfectly. The dress has a lot of stretch so you can truly adjust as you see fit. It's also available to purchase in sizes XS to Large, so a little something for everyone. 

I want to see you out and about in this dress, people, so make the magic happen.
