What I’m Loving: The LWD

I am going to tell you a little secret. Swear you won’t tell? The secret is that EVERYONE looks good in white. Everyone. White is like the color black in which it is flattering for all body types and skin tones. Before you object, try on a LWD (Little White Dress) yourself. Take a look and see how beautiful your really are in a great white dress. By the way, this dress is essential for this spring and summer. It is number 1 on my list! Oh, and did I mention that all of these dresses are under $100. Amazing!
