I’m going to a cocktail party on Saturday night and I need/want to look impressive.
Because I’m in Houston, I have to make a miracle ensemble pop out of my closet. Thankfully I have some timesless designer pieces left over from my red carpet days in NYC.
Here’s what I’m starting with:
Remember this Alaia dress I first wore to the Sex in the City premiere almost 3 years ago?!
Goooooodness. Not the best night for those extensions. Although, in all fairness, I had been shooting a promo with Cisco all day.
As for the dress, I still love it and get a million compliments on it every time I wear it out.
I could probably pull something together, but when I really want to go big, I call upon the best in bling biz, my friend Erica Courtney. She’s adorned every celeb you can think of AND little ole me :)
Her pieces make all the difference!
Below are the options she’s sent for me to wear with the white Alaia dress and one of the three pairs of shoes you see up there. I’m leaning towards the green silk Moschinos or the jeweled Nine West (can you believe it?!) so keep that in mind.
The first pair is my favorite, but I don’t think the color is strong enough to shine through my hair. Although I could wear it up….. The blue is the most striking, but is the tone too powerful?
The great part about Erica’s designs is that you can mix and match the huggies, middle pieces, and pendants because they’re all detachable.
As for the rings….I’m not sure they go with outfit. Plus these days I prefer simple bands over statement pieces. Not sure why that is, but I noticed that the other day. I’ve toned down my jewelry A LOT! Her gold diamond huggies are on my wish list because they would make even my sweats look elegant.
Ok, your turn. What do you think?!!! (Tumblrs, please click through and post your comments….pretty please :))
