Do You Dare? Here are some fantastical and outrageous ideas for shaking up a ho-hum day or a seemingly banal wardrobe! Part of the fun of fashion is its ability to transform! Try . . .
Faux Eyelashes. I am loving these Viktor and Rolf with Shu Uemura fantastical false lashes, for purchase at Harvey Nichols. Or, if you have the means, opt for luxurious fur lashes!
A brazen new neckline, like Prada’s keyhole or Jean Paul Gaultier’s halter sweetheart from the Spring 2008 Couture (photo at left via style.com). Or go for a backless dress or tunic - see Couture Carrie's post from the other day!
Patterned thigh-highs or sporty tube socks! (coupled with a patterned dress – I double dog dare you!!) Channel the Vivienne Westwood Red Label “schoolgirl gone wild” look!
Halloweeny makeup (red eye shadow; orange nails; green lipstick – you get the idea). See Beyonce's yellow nail lacquer look at left, via jahaute.blogspot.com.
A ridiculously wide and chunky belt – maybe even studded! Couture Carrie is totally digging this Elizabeth and James elastic belt with triple buckle, for purchase at aloharag.com.
An oversize cocktail ring – try something you would ordinarily shun and see how much attention it gets – fun! I like these arty Phuze Design glass cocktail rings, for purchase at aplusrstore.com
A flesh-tone bikini: Make them do a double take! There’s nothing more alluring than swimming in the nude! Try the Shay Todd suit pictured at right, available at figleaves.com.
