It used to be that when I was stuck on what to wear for an event, I would pick up the pages of Lucky Magazine and flip through them till inspiration struck (which it always did).
Now that Lucky Magazine is no more *moment of silence…
…I use Pinterest. Sure, it’s more convenient and I can search it while shopping for inspiration and type in exactly the piece I’m looking to style blah, blah blah *rolls eyes. Hey, it’s still no Lucky :'(
When preparing to go to a red-themed fashion show thrown by the great Claire Queisser, I wanted to make sure my outfit was on point. So I started with one piece – sequin pants and built it from there.
Above are the pictures on Pinterest that inspired me…
Also, the pants pictured above are from White House Black Market, but The Limited had a pair on sale as did Forever21. Speaking of Forever21, they saved me with this $12 shirt as I own one piece of true red – a Piko top – that just wasn’t cutting it so I had to find something else. And the jacket is from TJ Maxx.
One of my goals this year was to wear these pants beyond the holidays, so if I can achieve that goal, I can achieve anything ;)
