Just over a month ago I was invited to be a part of Society Stylist's Little Black Dress Experiment, in which 31 Bloggers across the country were invited to style their very own Ann Taylor Little Black Dress, gifted to each blogger courtesy of Ann Taylor.
You can see my full post and picture over at the Society Stylist Blog as today is my day! If you're not into clicking, you can read on to learn more about my outfit!
My name is Kelsi Smith and I am the Editor and Founder of Dedicated Follower of Fashion and I'm here in sunny and fabulous Downtown Los Angeles. Peeking out of my background there is the Walt Disney Concert Hall, a beautiful landmark in this fabulous city designed by world renowned architect Frank Gehry. Now it may seem that I'm just standing in an ordinary parking lot – for the view perhaps? Nope, this ordinary little parking lot will be, in 6 months from now, a Downtown Los Angeles landmark in itself as the new home Los Angeles Fashion Week thanks to Fashion Los Angeles and architect Marmol Radziner. Exciting stuff happening in my amazing city!
As for what I'm wearing (which is what this is all about right?!) the second I slipped this Ann Taylor dress on I felt sexy, to amp up the sex appeal I cinched the waist further with a vintage belt, slipped on my pencil thin stilettos and vamped up with a vintage silk scarf. Ultimate pin-up chic complete with bright lips, thick bangs and winged eyes.
Dress: The universally flattering dress from Ann Taylor.
Belt: Vintage, my absolute favourite belt, gorgeous colour with just the right amount of wear.
Shoes: These Vicini heels are crazy, super thin and super high they ooze sex appeal…and they match my favourite belt perfectly.
Scarf: My Mum gave me this beautiful vintage silk scarf for Christmas a few years ago, it has a gorgeous muted palette of pinks and blues and is covered in illustrations of fashionable ladies of the twenties – it's a treasured possession.
