So this Friday is the annual Fall Ball hosted by the Young Affiliates of The Mint and yours truly will be in attendance! While I haven’t finalized my look for the gala, I did pull inspiration for this look from the idea of dressing up and being fancy (which I love).
I developed this look based around this beautiful Michaelangelo apricot iridescent maxi skirt, which I’ve had for several months, but never pulled it out of my closet (dumb me!). I spent all evening in my closet, while on the phone with my best friend, fishing for a top or blouse to pair with this unique skirt and just when I had given up, I discovered a tub of clothing out in my garage. You’d think that I would remember placing it there, but I don’t, matter of fact, I found 2 tubs full of clothing that I’d forgotten about. Turns out, I found an eggplant iridescent peplum top that was a perfect match (or should I say perfect, once I matched it with my favorite gold sequins belt to add a little sparkle to the already existing shimmer).
Granted it’s a Thursday, and I’m sure the onlookers where wondering why I was so dressed up at mid-day, but hey, that’s what this blog is about … . . the only way to dress, is UP.
