All Black and Perfect for Summer

I blinked and Piperlime was gone. Such a loss. I was a regular deal hunter at Piperlime. That retailer was one of the few I would routinely shop online. Y’all know I hate to pay for shipping. Shopping Piperlime’s site was easy, then, because shipping was always free. I already miss you, Piperlime. Summer black dress

Warmer weather is usually my cue to wear all the bright colors all the time. This summer black maxi dress, purchased on mega sale at Piperlime, has become a summer staple for me though. The breezy dress is the perfect backdrop for mixing in bold gold accessories, pops of color, and even vibrant prints.

In today’s look, my accessories, like the Steve Madden Donddi sandal with its hip patterned strap over the vamp, give the dress a casual chic vibe. By the way, the black maxi dress can be such a versatile piece, transforming effortlessly from fancy affair to running errands with a simple switch of accessories. I wore this summer black dress to travel recently and it traveled so well. Not a wrinkle in sight.
