Tangled Machine Necklace by Made Her Think
What’s problematic about falling love with this season’s statement necklace? Unfortunately, the semi-coy, strategic mixing of this piece into your daily wardrobe has a much shorter shelf-life then the accessories of seasons past .
When I discovered the Made Her Think line, I was overcome by curiosity, smitten with their distressed, rusted and well-worn industrial pieces. Since acquiring my well-loved longer version of this necklace, I have made it an inseparable, day-to-night permanent staple.
As all you ladies know, getting ready for a night out usually entails a brief run-down of outfit possibilities with the usual coterie of gal pals. However, it is a fairly bad sign when your friends can stop you mid sentence, their ESP rendering you completely speechless, knowing your exact strategy for accessorization. This may make for an embarrassing moment now and again, but I will easily overlook a brief cheek flush for this must-have accessory.
Sequin Dress by 3.1 Phillip Lim
Don’t you just love holiday parties? Whether your swinging back eggnog, while a Bridget Jones look-alike is treating you to an off-key rendition of christmas karaoke or you are enjoying a flute of bubbly with your closest friends, while counting down to your fresh start in 2010, it is essential adorn an absolute show stopper. Many opt for a LBD, but we all know that you can’t settle for blending in, so why not stand out in dazzling sequins from head to toe. With options from Alexander Wang, Ashish and this little number by Phillip Lim.
Attending the Sassy Chicks Fashion Bash
Yes, I concur. It may be a thoroughly questionably named event, but with the prospect of purchasing a few self-indulgent pre-holiday gifts, I am willing to overlook it. With prices up to 80% off you need not worry about making it on to Santa’s naughty list.
Enjoy a complementary cocktail or two while browsing deals from Chanel, Prada, Dior, Gucci, Nanette Lepore, Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg and many more.
Consider purchasing two VIP tickets for $20 which will ensure you get the fist dibs on the designer goods, avoiding the predatory fashionistas. If that isn’t enough to sway you, you will also be treated to a gift bag of goodies, complementary cocktails and complementary spa services.FASHION BASH WEDNESDAY DEC 02, 2009
