Can’t Go Wrong with Black

You must admit that whether you’re headed off to a cocktail party or a wedding, the little black dress is never a fail-option.  It’s always a safe choice for any occasion.

Recently, I was invited to an old friend’s wedding in town.  Personally, I feel more comfortable wearing “kebaya” to a wedding, especially Indonesian weddings.  Since it was on a short notice, I wasn’t really prepared to go all out with “kebaya” and had to find something wearable to the occasion in my closet.  I found this little black satin dress by Zara that I bought a while back, only a few weeks before I found out I was pregnant.  By the time my body has gained its new shape, I never had a chance to wear the dress and it had been hanging in the corner of my closet, untouched.  I didn’t dare to touch or even try it after I gave birth.

Somehow the dress called me up for the occasion.  I took the courage and tried it on.  It fits nicely *thank God* and there I was sporting my little black satin dress to the wedding.
