Maybe it’s just me. But, I find the mere idea of children of single digit ages wearing Little Black Dresses rather silly, particularly when sized up they could be worn by their much older sisters, their mothers and in some cases their grandmothers. In other words, we’re talking LBDs scaled down for children beginning at age two and three.

I could imagine a sweet little girl-like dress in black velvet with short sleeves and a white Peter Pan collar although the same dress could be navy blue or red. I could also imagine that at five or six or seven to nine a little girl might find the idea of a LBD a great deal of fun, particularly if it has a hem that finishes in a flurry of plumes.
However, I think an adult could easily explain that she has her entire life in front of her to wear all sorts of LBDs — and red lipstick!
Maybe it’s just me; you’ll have to tell me.
