I was just at a fantastic party weekend thrown by my best friend. We celebrated her ten year wedding anniversary. Both nights were absolute “dress-up” nights and to sum it up briefly: there was definitely no skimping on the sparkles and ruffles – completely changing my idea of the perfect party look. Up to this point, I’ve felt that I look chicest when I’m like the night: simple and black. I’m usually colorful during the day, because, as a rule, I enjoy the nighttime purism. That’s all different now. It could also be because we danced through the entire weekend. And that is definitely the most fun in flat sandals or even sneakers (fun fact: an incredibly well-dressed woman from Russia joined us late-night in her cool 60s glitter dress and danced non-stop in her pink sport shoes!). Even though I will never move as elegantly as Cher in heels – she was my personal icon during the festivities. And – when we’re already stuck in the 70s fashion and music-wise – why not wear nonchalant white Chucks with a really glamorous outfit? Here’s the one important rule: If it’s “recreation on the feet” then up above has to be BOOM!
Michael Kors sequined knit jumpsuit with flared legs was made for my white Chucks. Jewelry and accessories are better left at home, they just get in the way while dancing.
I prefer to wear Emilio Pucci’s fiery red, transparent silk blouse with a ruffled scarf paired with simple blue jeans (“Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” inspired) and gold aviator sunglasses from Oliver Peoples.
My favorite dress of the season is a tunic from Alessandra Rich with Lurex threads throughout. The chain belt is, of course, the icing on the cake. But the tunic also looks great with flared pants.
