To put it in perspective, I wore fake eyelashes last year and caused quite a stir. So yeah...
Anyways, I've narrowed it down to two options. One a bit "crazier" and the other an outfit I picked up today that I really like which also happens to be a bit more elegant. So here are the choices -
Option 1 - Short dress with added crinoline, cardigan and uber-high heels.
The black and white petticoats I bought a long time ago. The dress is from Forever 21 about a year ago and the cardigan is Twelve by Twelve also from about a year ago.
I love these fabric rosettes and the rhinestone buttons. Gives is just the right amount of shine.
Alexander McQueen rose heels. They are just too smashing. But, even though bare legs and these peep-toes look great with the short, short skirt, I think I would look ridiculous as it is 20 degrees out.
So I was thinking of these sheer black tights with the thigh bow detail from Cynthia Rowley (bought from Gilt Group - really loving the tights they get on there).
And pairing them up with my Manolo Blahnik Campari black patent mary janes.
Option 2 is a bit more subtle.
I walked by a New York and Company store today and, which I never do, decided to pop in. They merchandised well because my eye was caught by this paillette skirt right off the bat. Not surprisingly of course. I love the muted olive-y green sheen and had to have it. I wanted to keep it low key but glam so I found a heathered bronze v-neck sweater and, just in case, a taupe cami for layering. It seems a bit loose here but the look is more relaxed and slouchy, contrasting with the fitted gleaming skirt. I probably wear just a simple necklace and maybe my watch.
To keep the neutral elegance going, I was thinking of my Le Silla Stardust heels.
Of course, the second option would be more comfortable but I kinda want to wear the more silly dress.
What do you think???
