Glitz & Glam – Sparkle & Shine
Happy Friday! A very happy one when it involves dressing up and going out to a launch party. I was invited to one last Saturday and this is what I wore. A very different look for me but I actually really like it and felt like a fashion model the whole time. I’m not really one for going out to clubs on Friday nights but if I did this would be the sort of look I go for. It is very different from what you see me in but isn’t that the fun of going out and dressing up. Also you can see I ditched all my bright colors and gone with a dark look and I never thought I would steer away from my colors but I made it sort of a goal to try the neutral route for the time being because I’m sure I will be back in colors soon enough. So let me just show you my outfit and a few shots I took with the backdrop at the launch party.
For my outfit I pretty much am wearing mostly everything from Forever 21+. My top is actually a body con dress but with me being so tall (5’9 if you’re curious) than it is a tad too short for me to be comfortable if I wear it out. I loved the sparkle though and was meant to wear it for New Years but didn’t so I still had to find a way to wear it. I bought it because it reminded me of a top I had when I was a teen so I kind of wanted to wear something like this again. I thought I’d never have an occasion to wear this to but I always find the perfect place and time to wear it out. Since it being too short I put a black skater skirt over it and you know I love this black skirt as it goes with everything I own in my closet. I think this is my favorite piece of clothing ever.
My shoes have to be my second favorite thing of this whole outfit. I hardly wear heels because I’m tall already but I felt the look needed heels so I went out the night before and bought them. I am going to be doing a whole post on these as they are so pretty not to but here they are with the outfit for now. As for accessories, I went really simple and just have these stud spike earrings, a couple of bracelets, I took my everyday bag with me as I don’t seem to own a little clutch and lastly a velvet black bow to tie in with my shoes. Also if you didn’t notice my hair is straight. I straightened it for once for the party and I didn’t know how long it was. I know since I have such curly hair and always having it curled it would be nice to switch it up a little but through out the day a hint of my curls was coming back so it wasn’t super straight but it gets the point across a little. Last thing is I tried to do my makeup differently and tried a little smokey eye because when will I be this fancy again and it might be a while. Overall it was such a fun night and loved my look I styled myself.
Well that was one of my glam and dressed up looks. I hardly go out and party so you won’t see me so dressed up like this often but it is fun. The lighting at the place wasn’t so good but I hope you could see it enough also I didn’t really plan on taking outfit pictures but I couldn’t pass it up when I saw how my outfit turned out. I am in love with this outfit and though at the end of the night my feet wanted out of the shoes I did like how everything paired together. I’ll have a separate blog post and vlog of the launch party if you are curious to see so stay tuned for that.
I also have another Curvy Style Diary on my channel of this outfit. Also you can see a bit of me modeling and trying to walk the runway. I really had a fun time and never expected to do something like that. You can watch below or on my channel here to see the fun short video of my outfit in action!
