Cocktail Cool

I hardly ever blog about fashion, so today I thought I would.

I am going to a birthday cocktail party next week. Im really looking forward to it as its not too often that I have a good reason to dress up.

I needed to buy myself a dress for the occassion, because nothing in my closet was saying "cocktail cool" (ok, and I just wanted something new)-
So, a week ago I found and bought a black, strapless, mesh, short "prom" dress (almost exactly like the one in the picture). I already have a great pair of Nine West, peep toe , mary janes (similar to ones in picture) that I plan to wear with the dress. All that is missing now is the accessories.

I decided to go to Polyvore (great website) to plan my outfit. I made myself a picture of what I would like my cocktail outfit to look like- here it is:
What do you think?

  12. Holy crap. Suddenly, I feel completely inadequate in the wardrobe department. Very impressive.

  16. I'm probably a little late in getting back, but I love the outfit! How funny on the timing, too. I'm not one for purple, but just yesterday I got myself a purple blouse to wear on Valentine's day. Then I see the purple accessories for your outfit, and they're really awesome. Great choice indeed!
