Expected or not? - LBD

Little or not, short, medium or long, it is all just is not ordinary!
Designers moves the borders so styles, influences and materials are shocking now!
However, FM is still a huge fan of classical, medium LBD.

Gosh, can't really go wrong with the little black (and so slimming) dress! Audrey Hepburn in her LBD for Breakfast at Tiffany's is iconic in it's own right and I so was the woman who wore it, love her!!!
