Isn’t this blue background cool? I have some more photos from last night to share with you, but am running around today, bouncing between fashion shows and such, so they should be up this afternoon. But, for now, here is what I wore to last night’s event. I got this dress with my Mom when I was back home in Seattle and it is definitely pretty on it’s own, but my process of accessorizing it is pretty funny. So. I started out by just letting the dress hang freely without the sash that it came with, but then I thought that it needed a little something. So, I managed to shimmy this “belt,” which is actually a necklace that I recently got at Fred Flare, over my head and slip it down to my waist. Miracle! Then I put on my regular jewelry, like rings and a bracelet and little vintage hoop earrings, but I wanted to try and push my limits a little bit, so I thought of the most glamorous person I know and what she would do. And that my friends, is The Glamourai. She is a huge fan of glaming it up with jewelry and I totally channeled her style here by piling on a big statement necklace as the final touch. Normally I wouldn’t think to wear a statement necklace and belt and earrings etc. But, I ended up loving the final look!
Lesson of the day: Take a risk by drawing inspiration from those around you and weave it into your own style. So fun!
