What I Wore

Selecting wardrobe for events can sometimes be an event in itself. Fortunately for me, it’s an event I very much enjoy. Last night I attended a movie screening. I knew in advance that I would be wearing all black.  A week before the event I had four options in mind, all dresses.  The day before I completely scratched that option and decided to go another route.

I went with a look that was comfortable while appropriate for the occasion and highly unlikely to be duplicated by another guest.  Here’s what I wore: a simple black top from H&M under a calf length sheer black kaftan (also from H&M); black sequins joggers by guess; and black and gold platform pumps by Giuseppe Zanotti.

I didn’t buy anything new.  I shopped my closet.  It’s full of wonderful things I have forgotten.  It makes for nice suprises when selecting wardrobe.  Since I’ve had the items a while the exact items are out of circulation but you can still shop similar looks.  Here are some items I found that were comparable.

In a Cinch

Let’s talk about one of my favorite accessories, the belt.  If you only use belts to hold your pants up you are losing my friend.  The right belt can turn blah into amazing.  Now trending, the cage belt.  It’s not for everybody but if you can rock it please do.  This belt has the cinching power of wide belt with the dainty style of a thin belt.  Like I said before, if you can rock it, please do.


Then there’s an old favorite, the corset belt.


When it comes to belts, the possibilities are endless.  Try fringe belts, skinny belts, rope belts, even chain belts.  You will be amazed how much difference one accessory will make.


When updating your wardrobe, belts are essential.
