I have a disproportionate amount of black dresses in my closet. But that’s because a woman’s got to have a good selection of solid little black dress pieces for all occasions, am I right? Work dress, casual dress, going out dress, rainy day dress, etc. While an LBD (little black dress) is already pretty versatile, not all are created equal. Luckily for me, I found an all-around winner from Tobi. And now I can’t stop gushing over one of my newest summer favorites with this cold should little black dress! It’s love.
As you may have guessed, this is the first outfit feature post in the Tobi x Penny For Her Thoughts collaboration! In this series, I’m dedicating my efforts to bringing you the inside scoop on some of Tobi’s latest fashion pieces. I’ll be covering the fit, feel, and fashionability of each piece featured in the series.
Today’s piece is a cold shoulder little black dress that is called the “Borrow Love Black Shift Dress”. Without further adieu:
- Fit: Runs Large
I ordered an XS based on the Tobi measurements guide on their official website. I would say that it fit much more loosely than I had expected. I had some trouble keeping the straps from falling and the front of the dress from dropping, but nothing a quick tug can’t fix! The great thing about loosely fitted dresses is that I can basically eat whatever I want without any need to feel self conscious! And that is definitely a plus in my book. But when it comes to ordering shift dresses, I would adjust one size below your usual.
- Feel: Love It!
This dress feels so light and summery! The sleeve and criss-cross back detail give this dress a delicate touch. The dress is primarily polyester which gives it a subtle shine along with cascading layers. I feel like a confident woman in this dress with a “that’s right, I look good, feel good, and can take on the world!” mentality.
- Fashionability: 5/5
There’s so many elements in this dress that make it a standout. Firstly, shift dresses are in-in-in, and will likely be for some time. It’s such a simple silhouette and looks good on so many body types since it gently drapes over feminine curves, or visually creates some for those of us less endowed. Secondly, soft ruffled cold shoulder sleeves. Um, yes please! The cold shoulder trend is starting to warm up on me, and I love how this dress absolutely owns this trend! And lastly, the criss-cross back. I’ve always been a fan of creative backs—lace, open, illusion, you name it. The fun criss-cross tie makes this dress a solid triple threat! Love it. Times three.
If this cold shoulder little black dress is any indication, I’m seriously crushing on Tobi. It’s an online fashion boutique based out in California whose mission is to provide in-the-now fashion at reasonable prices. They’re selection of outfits and pieces is phenomenal and their collection of LBDs is just the beginning! I’m looking forward to sharing more Tobi pieces with you soon! :)
