While I was in South Carolina for Christmas (after Disney) my mom and I were in search for a "girls trip" of sorts. We thought about Asheville, but the 4 hour drive wasn't incredible enticing. Charleston was only 2 hours away, but really when I go there all I want to do is eat grits... and honestly my hips couldn't handel that. My mother, my wise with age (she'd get rulllll mad if I called her the "o" word), mother JUMPED on my bed waving a newspaper in my face. I managed to hear the words Savannah, Dresses and some guy from Vogue. I was
A. Sold already
B. Knew exactly what she was raving about due to the fact that I watch the Today show on my lunch break. Ironically it's my sanity.
Why I was watching Today, I saw an interview with André Leon Tally, the aforementioned "some guy from vogue". He was gifted a gallery at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) and decided to fill it with 75 of the most iconic Little Black Dresses. YES PLEASE.
Because this show is not going on tour, nor will be open after January 27th I was given the opportunity to photograph the collection to share with yall... ok ok they allow cameras in the gallery, but still I knew yall WOULD JUST LOVE IT!
