What I wore– for cocktails and white tie.

September 25, 2011 in Costume, Fashion, Style, What I Wore by alliemcc

For my friend Geoff's birthday party.

On the left: before I left the house.

On the right: at the party.

I'm wearing

: a very mini halter dress by Babooshka Boutique

: a pleated tulle A-line skirt, acquired at Annie Sez back the day

: before I left the house, beautiful Adrienne Vittadini leather pumps

: at the party, little satin pumps acquired years ago…

: vintage silver-tone charm bracelet

: vintage silver-tone feather brooch.

The costume change occurred because the poufiness of the halter dress was not working with the line of the skirt. So I just tucked it in. And I changed my shoes because, as perfectly '40s as the Vittadinis are, my ankles are swollen from commuting, so they were not fitting well. C'est la vie.
