Reading the “Vogue” september issue I was inspired by feathers! I knew I had a formal wedding coming up so it was a good excuse to dress up.
It was a small section under “FLASH Talking Fashion” named “Well Plumed”. Pictures of beautiful girls wearing beautiful garments by Louis Vuitton, Christopher Kane and Erdem. Each Garment used the feathers in a different way: at the bottom of a dress, as a skirt, as a decorative accent to a shirt. I started browsing the web to find an affordable version to this trend.
I wanted a dramatic look of black, feathers and gold. As part of my closet essentials I already had the perfect bag and shoes to complete the look – a black leather clutch with tassels and a gold chain, and black patent leather pumps. After much browsing, I found the perfect dress by “MILLY”. It was black with a skirt full of feathers and a bow at the back. I Knew it was it! Next step was to find the perfect pair of earrings. J Crew was the answer.
I planned to have my hair up in a side bun with simple make up and a deep red lip. The total look was a success! I felt amazing and received many compliments throughout the night. It was fun planning it but much more fun wearing it! Enough said, here it is:
Dress by “MILLY”
