The Dress Details: Opening Night, Godspell
I'm back from an amazing weekend in New York. I will spill all of the details about my weekend in the city tomorrow. Today, it is all about fashion! Here are all of the details on my look from the opening night of the Broadway revival of Godspell.
Stylist: Roni B
Hair: Dry Bar
Dress: Silver Kiss
Shoes: Steve Madden $76.95
I received comments about these shoes all night. They are 5.5" heels with 2"platforms. Yes, I was tall. I love them and yes, you've seen them here before.
Elephant Ring: Betsey Johnson
Oval Ring: Forever 21 $6
Earrings: Roni B.
Bag: Roni B
Textured Tights: Gap $7
The most expensive thing on me that night was my shoes which were bought in the Fall of 2010 for under $77. Otherwise, all of the accessories and the dress were under $60. I just want to show you that a red carpet look can be done rather inexpensively. The attire for the evening was suggested as "festive". I think I am one of the few that adhered to that request. I loved being the bright color in a sea of black cocktail dresses. I clearly was not in LA, since NY loves their black. It's a good safe choice, but it's fun to stand out and be warm at the same time. Yay for long sleeves!
The accessories were designed to add another unexpected color to the look. So, gold and royal blue were added to my earrings and ring. The clutch remained black to tie into the tights, shoes, and the hint of black in the dress. Finally, the faux hawk added a bit of fun to the entire look. Dry Bar hooked me up with the braids as an added touch. I must say I have new respect for the ladies who rock braids every day. I loved them, but wow, they are tight and made my head itch. I thought I would keep them all week, but I caved after 2 1/2 days. I'm a total wimp.
