A new day calls for a new outfit! I wanted to wear the same colors from the outfit that I wore to the Pink Party (which you can see HERE). The events were related, so I wanted to utilize the same colors and skirt but in a whole new way. What I love about the skirt is the super flowy material, and it is short in the front, and long in the back (very popular right now!) For the previous outfit, I wore the skirt as it should be worn, but for this outfit, I simply pulled the skirt up over my chest, and wore it as a strapless shirt/dress. By putting a belt on over it, it cinched it enough to flatter my shape. Obviously it was very short in the front, so I put on a simple short black mini skirt, and added some wicked stockings to create a whole new look out of the same basic pieces.
Remember, this skirt is from Ross and was 10 bucks! The belt I got from TJ Maxx for 5.99 and the stockings are from Wet Seal for another 8 bucks. I got the stockings a few years and they are gorgeous! I haven’t been able to find them again so I handle these with great care so I don’t rip them up.
Now my favorite part, the accessories!
Okay so that amazing ring that looks like spikes coming out of my finger… yes, that ring is AWESOME! I found it online for 4 dollars!!! It’s one of my coolest rings, and it was soooo inexpensive! The spiked bracelet is from Forever 21 and the slave bracelet is from the Icing. My amazing chain purse I found at Ross (where I find most ALL of my amazing articles of fashion!) and it was a mere 20 bucks. The necklace I found recently at an accessory store in downtown LA and it was also 20 bucks.
My make-up was kept simple, although I did hand glue (eyelash glue!) 15 pink Swarovski crystals around my eyebrows and added a little glitter to my eyeliner. As for my hair, I inserted pink, black and white flowers and a black feather fascinator.
Again, my ensemble was an absolute hit at the event (LB Pride 2012). If it wasn’t my hair, it was my shoes people were in astonishment with. Many people asked to take a photo with me (including profesh photogs), which of course, was awesome. I remember times in the past where I attended different kinds of public events where there would be some gorgeous female all decked out in some elaborate fashion and I always wanted to be her… and after this day… I think I can say I made it. If you want to be “her” you can’t half ass it. You go big or you go home, and I’ve learned this over the years. And it always comes down to details. Clothes can only get you so far… but the details… those are what seal the deal.
