This past week on my first day in Savannah, Georgia my mom took me on a mother-daughter trip to SCAD's Little Black Dress exhibit curated by Andre Leon Talley. Displayed were 75 LBD's from designers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Comme des Garcons, Balenciaga, Azzedine Alaia, Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, and so many more. I've never given much thought to the amount of variety you can find within the context of a little black dress, I simply have my 1 H&M basic black dress and a black flapper dress I wore to my high school prom. To say the least this exhibit left me speech-less, except for the time I spent correcting my mom on how to pronounce Givenchy. Below you will find no more words as it's Sunday and we all deserve a break from over-working our weary eyes, just pure visual inspiration and stimulation.
