What could be better than a Banana Republic black dress?  Simple, elegant and contemporary, the little black dress is perfect for any occasion, nevermind the office or dinner. Today's young woman and should I say women of all ages, from New York to Seattle, knows the importance of a black dress. It doesn't matter what the occasion from a work atmosphere, cocktails, a funeral or party dress, the black dress is the apex of style and design. It works well in a variety of fabrics from silks, cottons, jersey, wool knits, crepe and polyester/spandex. I love that it breathes and moves with you in striking silhouettes of sheaths, full skirts and a-lines. From a casual work dress to dinner and cocktails, the black dress in a variety of fabrics, styles and designs complements any woman's figure. I especially like the variety of necklines, sleeves, belts and lace that intensify a graceful but sophisticated look.

Yes, I needed a new black dress for a dinner date, and what better than a black dress from Banana Republic. I loved the simple and elegant choices of a fashionable "little black dress" that would go anywhere and everywhere. The options were smart and chic - I bought two that would work perfectly and last for years to come.

My daughter happened to be looking for a young and youthful black dress recently and I suggested she look at Nordstrom. I've always had such a great time shopping there, so I thought she would too. Of course the selection was everything she hoped it would be and more. Classic or trendy, sweet or avant-garde, they had an eclectic variety that would work for anyone from party dress to casual. She's more on the conservative side so she wanted a simple and smart black dress that she could dress up or down. The fabrics of a dressy chiffon or the soft and supple knits are so stylish and did I say fashionable! And all at reasonable prices.

The selection of a-lines, sheaths and full dresses, necklines and hem lenghts were all so fresh and modern. Some came in colors, other than black and some in black/white or printed black. Yes, she found several that would work for her and couldn't wait to tell her friends. All in all, it was a productive day when my daughter was following mother's advice! Yes, she looked lovely in her new Nordstrom junior black dress - it didin't matter where she was going, but that she looked fabulous and felt fabulous.

Yesterday, I happened to browse through the dressy jacket dress boutique at Nordstrom and I came across a gorgeous selection of black jacket dresses - just what I was looking for! I loved the gorgeous variety of smart and sophisticated styles that I would die for. As it happened, I needed a new black dress for a special occasion and I really liked the idea of a jacket. First of all, it looks like a complete outfit, fashionable and chic, the option of taking off the jacket and it's warm. Nevermind, I can practically wear it all year round. Today's fabrics are so soft, light and breathable in spandex, jersey, silk and wool that I knew I would be able to wear this jacket dress for many other functions for years to come.

I needed something a little bit dressy - nothing overdone but in good taste and decorum. I certainly wasn't disappointed, in their beautiful and discriminating range, from various brands, a range of sizes and prices to fit every budget. So many beautiful styles and designs that I found the perfect choice almost immediately. Yes, I did remember first things first, and my first choice was  the perfect choice. I came home with a gorgeous black jacket dress that I looked beautiful in, and more importantly I felt good in. Needless to say, the black jacket dress from Nordstrom was a huge success.
