While we are anxiously awaiting the looks that the 31 bloggers will be presenting this next month, it only seemed right to kick off the “Little Black Dress Experiment” Tours America with looks from the girls of Society Stylist. Though you hear from and see me most often I wanted to introduce you to the secret force that works diligently to make things happen behind the scenes and ultimately is the team driving this entire tour. In our office we have something called “Team Lift” which is what we refer to things that take more than one person to move, or make happen. The “Little Black Dress Experiment” Tours America is definitely a “Team Lift” project and we want to thank everyone involved in making it possible. With only one “sample” dress to work with we played a little “Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants” and FedEx’d our Ann Taylor Little Black Dress around so each of our girls could show you their style. Meet the Society Stylist Team, and see their take on the Little Black Dress, to see who all is behind this incredible collaboration.

ABOUT THE LOOK DRESS: My wonderful little black dress is of course Ann Taylor. BLOUSE: The coral ruffled halter top is Forever 21. I snagged it from my sister Kendall’s closet last year because I thought it was so cute and I deserved to have it. SHOES: The silver peep toed shoes are Steven by Steve Madden. Fave memory: I wore them for my senior winter formal. EARRINGS: The earrings are for a little boutique called Stellas in fort worth. BRACELETS: The bracelets are also Forever 21. WATCH: AND my favorite part of the outfit is the AWESOME purple Tahitian Jelly Bean Watch from Michele. Go FROGS!

Everyone in the “tour” is participating voluntarily and no one— including me— is being financially compensated for their involvement. I will note however that each blogger is being provided the Ann Taylor dress to style for her look as well as a number of gifts from tour sponsors to include in her look or review separately, during the month of August.
