Statement Black Maxi

It’s already Tuesday and I’m still trying to recover from this past weekend in Chicago. If you were following along with me on Snapchat (@thefashionhour) or Instagram (@Natalie_Keinan), you probably noticed I left the unbearable heat of Dallas to go to Chicago for the weekend (where I found more unbearable hot weather). Jaclyn Mittman of Pretty Petals and myself took a spontaneous trip to the windy city where we attended a fashion conference and explored the city. We were nonstop and had the most amazing time running around town, taking in as much of Chicago as possible in our short trip. I will be sharing some highlights of our stay at Public Hotels and the many restaurants we were able to hit while there on the blog next week!

Dallas-Fashion-Blog-The-Fashion-Hour Dallas-Style-Blog-The-Fashion-HourAs for today’s look, it is all about the back of this dress. The detailing of the back adds a sexy touch to this otherwise very simple black gown. This is another Dillards clearance find (retails at nearly $200 and I paid $17!) that has been a go-to dress for beach vacations and summer weather. The dressy material and striking back make it a perfect dress for dinner al fresco and the slits on either side allow you to show off a great pair of heels. The black lace-ups I’m wearing were another clearance find from Macy’s ($14 and they come in multiple colors) bringing this outfit’s total to only $31! Insane, right? I accessorized with different shades of blue but the wonderful thing about black is that any color or metal will work!
