ModCloth Little Black Dress

This takes little black dress to a whole new level! The two details that make it "must-have" are the scoop back (click the link below to see the back of the dress), and the puffed half sleeve. The silver thread work really pops against the faux black lace; pair it with your favorite platform pumps (or Jeffrey Campell's for you brave ones out there) and you're ready for a night on the town.
