As promised, I'm back today to report on the enthralling saga of my quest to find the perfect accessories for my LBD. It's not exactly breaking-headline material, but it's probably more entertaining than my usual MO of whining, right? So, onto the pretty stuff!
After a few frenzied trips to retail establishments around the area, I've procured what I think are the perfect shoes and jewelry for the evening. Rather than the statement necklace (which I may end up getting anyway, but I couldn't get in time for this party!) I opted to go with a dangling earring:
I loved the vintage-y feel with just a bit of sparkle. Let's just pretend they came from an estate sale and not the clearance section at Target, ok? I'm planning to show them off by wearing my hair pulled back in a simple chignon or ponytail.
I adore big funky rings so was thrilled to find this beaded rose ring at Forever 21 - another totally cheap find that coordinates with the beading on my dress:
Won't this look smashing while holding a glass of champagne?!? It is a cocktail ring, after all!
Finally, the shoes. This purchase totally came down to comfort. I tried on several of the pairs I posted last week, but this platform peep toe just felt the best on my tootsies. I loved the combo of satin and sequins and the hint of shimmer they have. And I can totally see wearing them again to dress up jeans for date night. Or for vacuuming. Whatever.
And now the final decision: Should my stockings be black or nude? Were it not January in Colorado, I'd forego the whole hosiery thing and just go bare-legged. Because frankly, wearing pantyhose sucks. Unless, of course, it's on your face, because that can be downright funny, no?!? Son, you got a panty on your head!1 But, alas, I'm going to have to wear them on my legs. And while I bought both colors (and am strongly leaning towards one) I need you dear Internet, to confirm or deny my fashion hunch.
So back to the poll: What do you think? Black or nude?
If you'll voice your opinion by Saturday, I'll be much obliged. And on Monday, I'll post a photo of what I opted to wear and draw a random name from the comments to get a little RAK. Now you take that diaper off your head and you put it back on your sister!2
