Perfect palette - you add the personality!

The essential little black travel dress for occasions expected and unexpected.

Pack one of these dresses into a tiny space and shake it out into a ready-to-amaze layer upon which you'll create the look of the evening.

If you get the right dress you'll really only need one. Choose a fabric that washes and dries quickly and that resists wrinkling as well as a style that can be worn by itself or transformed - with some creative accessorizing - into whatever you need it to be.

Top with a funky little jacket and some black flats for lunches and refreshment stops during the day then add a little bling, strap on some heels and float an ethereal wrap over your shoulders to dazzle them at cocktail hour.

From sexy to demure to casual - here are some great selections that travel and sizzle.

Fabulous plus size black dress.

prAna Women's Quinn Dress

The magic is in the sheer simplicity of this dress making it the perfect building block to any event. Because it's sleeveless, it is perfect for tropical vacations and cruises but you can turn it into a cap sleeve dress by adding a little crop top.

Wear it exactly as it is for a demure and casual look, zazz it up for a funky daytime demeanor and add a shimmer for evening events. You can add as much or as little as you need to make this dress work for your event and for your personal style.

Add the Silver Designer Inspired Fashion Scarf or a white denim jacket for two completely different looks...or wear them both together for a more eclectic mien.

Smashing Little Black Dress For Curvy Figures

Plus size black cocktail dress

Wow, this one is truly a stunner - totally suitable for the Captains table, the opera or a romantic special event.

It travels tucked away in your bag, taking very little room and pops out looking like it traveled over on a dress form.

The fabric is flowy and slips over your body accentuating your assets and the little bit of bling at the bodice adds sparkle.

It's available in a 3/4 sleeve style too!


OK, when traveling it's not a good idea to wear expensive jewelry but sometimes a girl just wants to sparkle. Here are some really fun ways of doing that without bringing a treasure trove of temptation along with you.
