I love a good staycation, and I’ve been fascinated by the super retro Belmont Hotel here in Oak Cliff since it reopened. It was a motor court hotel built in 1946 by Charles Dilbeck. I love the sprawling Spanish style buildings and southwestern interiors, it definitely feels like an old movie set! The ambiance inspired me to pack tons of vintage, including my 50s silk slips, full skirts and petticoats, and dramatic 40s inspired nippy flared jackets. The Victor Costa jacket I am wearing above is an “80s does 40s” piece that I am crazy about! We shot these pieces with an array of delicate gold from LoveGold, who always seem to uncover the best of new jewelry talent. My favorite staycation activity is enjoying wine in bed with a good movie. I chose Leave Her to Heaven (1945, with beautiful Gene Tierney). One of my all time favorites, I highly recommend it for your next old movie night!
