October’s Theme Parties (Part 1)

So October is the month for costume parties & theme parties.  I’ve attended two thus far.

The first was a celebrity theme where each attendee had to come as their favorite celeb.  Well, I have a few, but my number 1 is Mary J Blige.

Of course I look nothing like her, but did my thing using most items from my current wardrobe.  Realizing all black as one of her outfitting trends & taking into account her new look with the thick framed black glasses, it came to me.  Mary J Blige doesn’t sport much jewelry, rocks large hoop earrings, knee or higher length, healed boots & moderate on the make up; kept all that in mind.  It was cool out, but wasn’t feeling the boots.

There were so many looks to choose from & such little time to execute. I waited until the last minute; how unsuccessful!

All items with the exception of the black skinny legged denim were from my current wardrobe.

Items worn:

Faux leather front sweater: Alloy Apparel (similar)

Skinny black denim: Target

Black Wedge Gianni Bini bootie: Dillard’s (no longer available)

Leopard print & black clutch: Dress Barn (no longer available)

Accessories from all over: CoachPremier Designs, a local beauty supply store & old 3D movie theater glasses.

Many other celebrities showed up & showed out.  The objective was to have fun & that we did.
