Every Girl Needs 3 Black Dresses, Here's Why

Every Girl Needs 3 Black Dresses, Here's Why

These will always be staples in any woman's wardrobe.


I was once told by a stranger that when it comes to a woman's wardrobe, she always needed three black dresses. Of course, you can have as many shoes, accessories, coats, and as many other dresses or wardrobe options your little heart desires, but three black dresses will always be important.

1. The Power Dress

The first black dress you own should be one that's all business -- your power dress.

This dress should make you feel like a boss. Clean cut and sleek should be two ways to describe this dress. It's one you can wear to the office, lead a meeting and it let's everyone know that you are capable of being in charge whether you feel like it or not.

2. The Funeral Dress

The second black dress needs to be one that you wear to funerals and absolutely nothing else -- your funeral dress.

This dress is classy and conservative. It's a dress that you can feel comfortable in, you look appropriate for all age groups and it will never show any tears. PSA: If it has pockets, it is even better! You can pack a tissue or two in there and maybe a piece of gum to share with the long lost relatives that have the coffee breath. Just because its a funeral dress, doesn't mean it needs to look sad too. This dress is STRICTLY for funerals ONLY; there is no need to carry death around with you anywhere else.

3. The Little Black Dress

Last but not least, your third black dress needs to be one to make any guy (or girl) that has done you wrong wish they hadn't -- your little black dress.

This dress is THE dress. This dress is one that makes you radiate confidence and makes you feel like you are the best looking woman in the room. You WILL turn heads in this dress. Those guys or gals that did you wrong will be wishing that hadn't the minute they see you in it.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto Is All Fun And Games Until You're Undernourished And Almost Pass Out

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
