This year seems the official year-of-love with so many weddings, that the fashion-head get’s a little dizzy due to all outfit choices: never prettier than the bride, no white, still festive, you know the rules. Plus, my feet still hurt from the last wedding party, Dr. Scholl to the rescue, please!!!
So when BFF not only called to attend his “I do” in Vienna recently but also to perform with him on stage to surprise the bride, it was clear to opt for a more edgy gown than you would normally expect for a formal, and sometimes “let’s all die in elegance” event. Think Guns N' Roses meets Nina Simone. So besides the heels (which I almost killed during the entrance song: Nomen est omen since it was 'Mr. Brightside' by The Killers), I NEEDED that top hat and feather boa, or have you ever seen Slash on stage without his hat or any jazz singer without feathers dramatically draped around his or her neck? Needless to say it also comes in handy to wear a detachable skirt to strip your outfit from ceremony to party: it helps competing with the sunrise while still moving wildly to disco tunes.
As far as the performance went, thanks for asking, I definitely played with all I got. Meaning, a lot of Dior “Pandore 754” Varnis which will now remain on the black & white keys forever.
Today’s shoes are some hot red pretty soles, which were shipped to the emergency room (aka heel doctor) with severe fractures immediately after the event.
