Party outfit uplift!

October 25, 2009

The current economic situation makes outfitting oneself for a party a challenge. If your budget doesn't support the purchase of a new dress or fancy pants, consider adding new accessories to a favorite already in your closet! My daughters and I wore new small headpieces and purse/gown accents to a benefit party enjoyed this past Friday. I want to share this idea with you.

Jai wore a short party dress with a ruched bodice in fuschia and skirt of black, boxy sequins. She wore the accents in the first several photos to step-up the 'pop'. The peacock feathers used in Jai's designs are from the rare 'purple' peacock. Swarovski crystal accents in her pieces matched the post earrings she wore.

I wore a long black satin shirt and black top with a scoop neckline framed with bold ruffles. The black feather headpiece was perfect for holding back the hair on one side of my style. The accent piece shown with my satin clutch below, was a perfect accent on my top. The Swarovski crystal accents in the black pieces coordinated with one element of the chunky and dramatic necklace worn. If our local social magazine shares photos taken at Friday night's benefit, I will add to this entry for a better look in context.

Our garment accents are held in place using pins or powerful magnets (for use with very fine, sheers fabrics that don't take well to pin holes). Breeziway created 25 feather and crystal accents for the tulle ruffle skirting of one of our summer brides. I am so eager to see and share photos of her gown and matching headpiece.

Difficult times, make getting out to enjoy others in the celebration of life ever more important. Let us know if we can help you feel brand new in a tried and true ensemble.

Wishing us all festive moments ahead,
