Lace + Silk dress c/o NaiS, Jack by BB Dakota Brendi coat, Apt 9 over-the-knee socks (also seen here). Shot by Isaac Lacey.
A few weeks ago I was approached by Brooklyn-based lingerie line NaiS to take part in 'The Black Series,' a campaign that asked 5 local female bloggers to photograph themselves wearing one of the brand's limited-edition holiday designs in hopes of breaking the mold and ruling out certain stereotypes about lingerie. At first glance, the project sounded empowering and fun, and the designs were so beautiful and artfully crafted that saying yes was a no-brainer.
My top pick from the collection was this stunning lace and silk dress with a plunging lace neckline and daring thigh-high slits: the perfect little number to cozy up to at home, or to throw over a pair of thick tights and under a leather jacket for a night out. I brought the piece with me to New Hampshire over the weekend and threw it under a warm sweater with a pair of over-the-knee socks for a sweet and intimate lounge look. To add to the drama, the rustic living room setting, warm fire and gorgeous winter snowscape outdoors made for one of my favorite shoots yet! It felt amazing to let go of all inhibitions for a moment and interpret this stunning number for my own.
This limited edition dress is available til Sunday, Dec 7th at Nais. And don't forget to check out the other bloggers from the project on their blog as well!
