Like last week I dug in the trenches for a previously unreleased FASHION FRIDAY and I found this little gem..  
A time when FASHION FRIDAY was still in it’s infancy… My Hair was still a dark brown.. and I was wickedly obsessed with the OPI Burlesque collection (I still lust after that polish BTW).  
Interesting enough this is one of those dresses that I actually forgot that I had before I dug these pictures up.  Come on you all know that happens to you!  I’ve been playing on the colorful side of my closet so much that the LBD (that’s little black dress) kind of fell off my radar.  
I love this dress by Funcktional. For me it’s the perfect mixture of sexy, comfy and classy.  An open plunging back always seems to make what could be a ordinary dress super exciting… and the great thing is that unlike our front never have to hold your backside in because you had one too many cupcakes.
In other news..
I am headed to the opening of A Raisin in the Sun at the Ebony Repertory Theater Company tonight.  My first official serious outing since my surgery two weeks ago. I was an avid watcher of the Cosby Show when I was a kid and although I have seen her on the stage (amazing) and met her on more than one occasion (I bow down), I am stupid excited to see this production of my great aunt Lorraine Hansberry’s classic play directed by the ever so talented Phylicia Rashad.  A living legend!
The after party is hosted by Venice Magazine.  Hmm what the hec to wear.  Something super crutch friendly.. or not..I am a glutton for punishment..
Sexy. Comfy. Classy……I “Like”
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!!!
