Every woman needs a classic black dress for any occasion. The "LBD" is an essential in completing any wardrobe, even if your wardrobe consists primarily of maternity clothes.

My family and I are right in the middle of the New York City preschool process, which requires attending several school tours and interviews. With many of my dresses and dress pants not fitting over my expanding belly, I needed a classic dress that would make the perfect impression on the schools we were visiting.

When I spoke with Rosie Pope at her maternity clothing store on Madison Avenue a couple of weeks ago, she could relate to the NYC preschool process, having been through it with her first son. She knew exactly what I needed and picked out the most amazing little black dress for the my preschool interviews.

This little black dress is versatile and can be easily be dressed up or down based on the occasion. For our preschool interviews I went with a more conservative look and paired it with black pumps and a simple necklace and earrings, but if you are out for a fabulous evening with your spouse it would look great with a pair of colored pumps and more ornate jewelry.
