I’ve been a bit stuck on what to blog about the past couple of days, so it was with great relief when the folks from 2threads suggested that I (and a host of other bloggers) do a little bit of a post about “what getting ready to go out means to you”. To be honest, it usually involves me lamenting over not having anything to wear. Which is why when it comes to my weekend party attire, in order to prevent a “getting-ready” meltdown, I tend to stick to a bit of a formula.
Witchery silk tank, vintage skirt, Lancome eyeshadow, Tony Bianco shoes, Gregory Ladner bag, M.A.C. lipstick, Chloe perfume
Firstly, I base the style of the outfit depending on the occasion. Is it going to be a bit of a fancy night out? Think a dinner date, cocktails with the girls, or going somewhere where there’ll be a dress code (ugh so much dislike for places with dress codes). If the answer is yes, then I’ll wear something along the lines of the above outfit. Silk top + flippy skirt + heels + assorted baubles = hopefully I’ll look like I’ve made an effort. If, however, it’s going to be a more casual affair then I’ll wear something along the lines of the next outfit:
Witchery top, Cheap Monday jeans, Pinet wedges, Urban Originals bag, Lancome lipstick, L’eau D’Issey perfume.
Statement top (a little bit of animal print never goes astray) + jeans + wedges + patent = fail-safe outfit that will hopefully kit you out for a range of occasions. Think tapas with the gang, heading to a gig, house parties (so much love for house parties), or one of those less than respectable nights on the town spent downing drinks in a shitty bar where the noise levels will most likely leave you deaf by age 30. Anyway, once the outfit is sorted, all you need is good company because really, all the best memories have less to do with what you’re wearing and more to do with the awesome people you’re with.
