Had plans for a girls night out this evening but canceled at the last minute. Wasn't feeling up to it. Plus I figured I should rest up if these old bones were going to make it through back to back Halloweening this weekend.
Spent the night watching must see TV...and fielding texts from Jean Bean and Peaches. They were at a masquerade ball tonight. For YSL. Ugh, disgustingly, Eyes Wide Shut FABULOUS!
Thanks to Twitter and Mr. Newton, I felt like I was at the party with Leigh Lezark too. Well, except she was wearing Balenciaga and I was wearing PJs.
American Apparel sweater
Urban Outfitters zipper rosette headband
YSL bag and heels
Built the outfit around the - duh! - YSL accessories. Also threw in a little Forever 21 for good measure.
Normally boring basics become anything but boring when paired with statement accessories (metallic shoes! leopard print bag! spike necklace!)
Loved how chic I felt. Pulling together unexpected separates is always tougher for me than just throwing on a dress. So I'm thinking today wasn't a total waste: found a new go-to look that I can easily reinvent by mixing up the accessories.
Only one problem: no matter what I do or don't do this skirt always ends up HORRIBLY WRINKLED by the end of the day. Felt like a damn dirty ape. No YSL ball for the wrinkled.
