Friday. No frills, just a reason to dress up. I had just showered so my hair is up, no reason to anger mother nature and try to fight the humidity, I gave up.
It is nice to be recognized by the doorman, no wait and I got a hug on my way in. Two ladies in line were denied entrance before I walked in…gosh, I’m such a douche.
What I’m Wearing.
Dress- XXI; Jewelry- Fly High Little Bunny, Ta2; Shoes- Jimmy Choo.
The goal: spend less on wardrobe. Solution: thrift shops, recycling clothes, tailoring and stealing from mum’s closet.
I have really gotten into the whole 80s/boyfriend jacket trend. I stole one of mum’s blazers and had it tailored. I removed the shoulder pads and had the sleeves cinched.
I also had an awesome Moschino pencil skirt, it was my absolute favourite and I wore it to work as often as I could. I wore the skirt so often that, after many times at the cleaners, it started fading at the hem. I decided to have the skirt shortened and keep it as a night-out mini.
For the outfit I added a simple tee, tons of mismatched jewelry and high heels (of course). Total Cost of tailoring: $20. Brand new outfit!
Do forgive the big frizzy hair: 1. I live in Texas and big hair is a prerequisite for a night out and 2. it is so humid that as I’m typing this my panties are still soaked.
What I’m Wearing:
Jacket: Vtg. Armani (tailored), T-Shirt: Michael Stars, Skirt: Moschino Chic and Cheap, Shoes: Christian Louboutin, Jewelry: Way too many to list.
Glass of Champers Evening aka Friday night. I was exhausted and had slept for only 7 hrs in the past 2 days, but still felt like finally going out. Loads of concealer and accessories to distract from my dark circles. Please note the pretty shiny hair, thanks to vitamins. Yay! Also, the Habanero plants are getting so big (that’s what she said)!!! Finally spotted two little habaneros, can’t wait to try them. I mention it because the plants are always in the pics Ipost.
What I’m wearing:
Sheer gray top – UO
Black Pants – Fendi
Black Shoes – Prada
Swarovski Crystal ring – Macy’s
Black Bodysuit – American Apparel
My hair and makeup for the evening. IGNORE THE TIRED FACE! I SAID IGNORE IT!! But I felt I had a great hair day.
I always tell people how I’m glad that I’m fluent in French, but when I finally run into Parisians and I try to talk to them they don’t understand a word I said. Brag-adocious Fail. That’s how an evening should end.
