2011 Art Calendars: The Little Black Dress - 12 Month - 30x30cm
Coco Chanel was far ahead of her time, but not Space Odyssey far. If only Coco could see her Little Black Dress (LBD) now, I think she would approve. Our badge of femininity, a loyal wardrobe staple has gone futuristic, or should I say ... techno. Yes, my fellow Average Joan ... the Best Little Black Dress has arrived to the New Millennium party.
This year, you'll soon be able to dial your friends and get incoming calls from the hem of your sleeve. Yep, that's right ... an LBD that's a phone. Called the M-Dress, (Moble Phone Dress)and produced by Cute Circuit, this year we'll be able to catch all calls, make them on our way to everywhere in a form-fitting dress with just a simple lift of the wrist to the ear. Drop your arm, and you hang up. Very Jane Bond and the French Connection.
It Begins with a Wish... and Becomes Grant Writing Success ... Yours!
Okay, you skeptical Joanies, I know what you're thinking. A Little Black Dress doubling as a cell phone, how? And what do you do in the middle of an itch?
Hold off selling your bridges, this hip-hugging soft circuitry cell phone dress has a built-in antennae concealed in the hem. You simply insert a SIM card in a slim slot underneath the label and you're ready to accept calls from your regular cell phone number. I wonder if this classic little black dress will eventually come in a number of styles. We'll just have to wait and see.
OUR WORLD INSPIRED BY

The Little Black Dress also makes itself known in other areas of our lives, and even satisfies our sweet tooth.

3. Voila! The LBD Cookie
This LBD cookie would make a nice favor for the Little Black Dress/Little Pink Dress Sisters Tea for Breast Cancer Survival you can host in the Spring.
First time hearing about it? Here's a brief rundown. The purpose of hosting a Little Black Dress/Little Pink Dress Sisters Tea is to raise funds so friends, sisters, mothers, daughters, congregants, the neighbor down the street ... can help women undergoing or just completed Breast Cancer treatments ... feel good about themselves.
Each Tea guest pays a fee determined by the host. Money raised for the Tea provides a massage, a little black dress, a beauty gift basket, gift certificate, or stylish wig ... (whatever the need or desire) anything that helps her feel beautiful and calm during the toughest fight of her life. It's been documented, feeling good helps the healing process. You can also offer beauty services like a manicure or chair massage during the tea for the guest of honor.
Since your guests are already styling in their LBD and LPD best ... why not add a fashion show using a few as models? For more info. and ideas on hosting a Little Black Dress/Little Pink Dress Sisters Tea & Fashion Show stop by iCafe Woman Moderne, a virtual cafe for inter-generational women. I'll provide more info. in the weeks to come.

5. Ladies Tea Hats to Wear with Your LBD.
You can find a plethora of beautiful hats to wear with your LBD. This white straw head-turner from the Shenor Spring Collection shows off white satin flowers and white uniquely draped satin trim.

Diamonds and pearls are still a fashionista's best friend. Sure, the jewelry standard for the LBD dates back to when Coco Chanel first introduced the dress to the world and will always be a nice strand of pearls.
