This dress immediately takes me back to my preteen days in the late 1980s, when ruffled skirts were all the rage. I love the modern twist that the Alice + Olivia brand has given this simple little black dress (LBD), with a sheer neckline, fitted bodice and short hem. It's probably more suited to a cocktail party than the office, but I just have to consider my work my own private runway. Where else would I wear such a fabulous dress?
