Graduation Outfit #2

If you read my last blog post on what to wear to a graduation as an attendee you’re in for a treat! Tonight I wanted to comment on a cute and classic look fit for any graduate no matter the age level. Let’s start from the top.

For the hair I wanted to keep it simple and I love a beehive hair style because not only does it give you height, it’s elegant and so 1950s! Just be careful putting on and off your cap :p

I chose a sophisticated color combination that is timeless and age appropriate for all! A strapless, black and white gingham printed dress with a black sash keeps the focus on YOU!

The accessories is the fun part. I’ve always dreamt what it would feel like to wear Chanel jewelry and doubling up cascading Chanel pearls with the iconic C’s is a grand statement! All eyes are on you so why not LOOK the part?

Betsey Johnson makes darling accessories and my faves of hers are the rings! You can find both of these statement rings at Macy’s. Not only do the colors compliment each other but they’re in the same leopard family!

Lastly the shoes. I stumbled across these Pour La Victoire sideways stacked heel in a neutral color. So from the front it looks like any adorable peeptoe but turn sideways and you’ll be getting looks like you were Lady Gaga. I can’t get over how different and unexpected these shoes are combined with the overall style! Thoughts?

conGRADS! You did it 🙂

GRADUATION OUTFIT 1

WORK what ya momma gave you!!

A part of me is reminiscing about my Winter graduation; I think it’s all those happy times we all so longingly hold onto. For those of you who are graduating or will be graduating in the near future, not to fret! Cos I created a little Polyvore- type look of sorts of what yours truly will be wearing to my little cousin’s impending graduation.

Things to keep in mind if YOU are not the one graduating:
1. It is not your day and beware because the graduate may be bridezilla.
2. Dress down, but not too down! Think daytime cocktail party.
3. Wear shoes to withstand long periods of time. But if you’re like me, to hell with that and still wear heels!
4. It would be nice to coordinate outfits for photos?
5. If the school you are at is your alma mater then feel free to represent your colored school, patriotic spirit!
