I am doing a series of party looks for this Holiday Party Season. I know people are always looking for new make-up and hair inspirations for all the different parties! I know I hate looking the same in photos from different parties...and let me tell ya, I would never be caught dead in the same dress twice in one year let alone one party season, but that's just me.
So with each new outfit you MUST have a new look!
I always liked to push the boundaries each Christmas season by trying to outdo my outfit from the year before. It started back around Christmas 2005 with a spotty vintage dress...and from then on each year I would push it further and further with a new vintage dress. However,disaster struck in 2008 with my dress as someone at one of my parties during the summer thought it would be hilarious to go into my closest and walk out in my 2008 Christmas dress! I didn't wear it in the end because the big reveal had been ruined! She completely ruined the surprise. This is HOW serious I take the dresses!
Here are a few of my favourite frocks...and even the disastrous 'PEACH NIGHTMARE' 2008 dress (it was a 1980's Vogue Couture dress shipped all the way from L.A.!)
|I unfortunately don't have a full length picture of myself in this, however I can assure you it is highly flammable material and is a 1980's Bridesmaid's dress I altered.|
|However...I did let a friend borrow it recently for a fancy dress party...because apparently that's all my dresses are good for :D|
|Ex Bridesmaids dress which I altered. I wore it with some rockin Irregular Choice Shoes!|
|The shoes were similar to these IRREGULAR CHOICES but with purple leather heal and toe detail and pink and purple fabric stripes! I still have them and LOVE THEM!|
RIGHT! Let's get down to business!
