I think one of the best parts about themed-parties is they “give us permission” to get a little eccentric. I love that each guest will get to use their imagination and have their own interpretation of the theme. It’s almost like the adult version of playing-dress up, right? With themes like Mirror, Mirror and Shattered (The After Party), we’ve got a lot to play with here!
So, where will you start? I’ve begun my hunt for the perfect outfit by looking for things with sequins, crystals and shiny metal embellishments. I’m also keeping an eye out for anything with abstract geo prints and shapes- they mimic shattered glass perfectly.
Here are a few ideas* (courtesy of Faye’s Boutiques) to get your creative juices flowing:
I spy a little sequin number by David Meister. The abstract cut, silver tone and sequin detail create the perfect combination.
Layer them on. If you’re a Little-Black-Dress kinda’ girl, glitzy glam baubles are a great way to add pop to your outfit.
The Diehard Details
This is that “eccentric” part I was talking about. Get creative with your nails, add a head piece, slip on those crazy shoes, wear that wild shade of lipstick, etc.
February 22, 2014 is a night to take your fashion manifesto to the next level…a night to shatter your own glass ceiling!
You’ve got this…
