DAY #5 - Society Stylist’s Little Black Dress Experiment Tours America
NONSENSE & SENSIBILITY - HALEY SCHULTHEIS - Dallas, TX
Photo Location: The award-winning Solana Complex– Westlake (Dallas), Texas by internationally acclaimed Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta.
ABOUT THE LOOK
DRESS: Ann Taylor “Little Black Dress”
TANK: Black Lace tank by Rodarte for Target
JEWELRY: Vintage gold chains from the Atlantis Home Collection, bangles from Elements boutique
SHOES: Yves Saint Laurent Iconic Patent Tribute Pump from Neiman Marcus
MAKE-UP: Tom Ford Beauty Private Blend Lip Color in Pure Pink
Because, of course, I can’t do something quite like everyone else, I couldn’t see myself standing in front of an ordinary landmark for my photograph. No, I most always opt for the extraordinary, so I took a trip out to this beautiful complex close to the DFW International Airport for my little black dress photographs.
The Solana compound is a gorgeous award-winning complex by Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta with waterfalls, lush landscaping, vivid colors, and the bold contemporary look for which Dallas is known.
For fall, I was feeling inspired to layer a lot of luxe gold vintage jewelry as I knew it would surely make a statement paired with the Little Black Dress. I piled on necklaces from Dallas’ very own Judy Aldridge of Atlantis Home from the Atlantis Dry Goods Collection.
The best part is, the look is refined enough to go from day-to-night and I wouldn’t hesitate to wear this mélange of accessories to work. Paired with my Yves Saint Laurent patent leather Tribute pumps, I’m confident I would attend my daily meetings in style.
And, with a pop of Tom Ford Beauty’s Pure Pink lipstick, a last minute dinner with friends would not pose a problem.
Hope you enjoy my take on the dress, classic with a twist of vintage glam. I can’t wait to see all of the other looks!
