Little Black Meme
Little Black Dress Books, based in the UK, has dozens of titles for young women, plus a blog, competitions, lists of authors, and health and beauty links. Little Black Dress Shop in Toronto sells LBD, in person and online.
A piece in the fashion section of the Toronto Star "Little black dress remains a basic treasure" discusses some of the history and the importance of the LBD, especially in France.
And in Boston, the play Little Black Dress at the Boston Playwrights' Theatre runs until October 24.
In Australia this past August, there was the Diet Coca-Cola Little Black Dress Rosemount Sydney Fashion Festival 2009. The photos of this event are awesome; visit at Sydney Events Photography on Flickr.
So that LDB that Coco Chanel popularized in the 1920s is alive and very well.
