London, 8pm, New Year’s Eve 2009…
The Karma-Style theme for the night: Relaxed glamour
It all began with this Nicole Fahri leather skirt.
One of my fave winter staples, sexy and warm! Everything else had to work with it. I was determined.
So, I added a touch of bling rock chic with this ZN 100% tee – keeping it light on top.
Yes I ironed the bottom of it before wearing!
Then a Glam-POP of colour! Costume Nationale fitted silk satin blazer. Cost a bit a few years back – worth every penny though.
I prayed to the universe: “Please let no-one spill a drop of anything on this tonight!”
Next, my Gucci slingbacks (bought in Milan c.1999)..I love them so. These are living proof that it pays to look after your wardrobe.
I look a bit lop-sided don't I? Not a drop of Champagne had passed my lips at this point, honest!
Too many things to deal with..don't move..hold in stomach and breath..smile..quick got to leave soon. Oh Geez! Anything else!
I'm tall, so a full-length shot is quite a challenge..
Another prayer: "I know I live in London but PLEASE no rain - not tonight!"
Can you read what this says? So many that night tried but no-one could..ummm I wonder why..
Wore sparkly gold hoops, no other jewellery. I'm sure you'd agree didn't need anything else. As you can see a size zero I am not.
The whole outfit came together perfectly I’m pleased to say, with no drama and no changes..A perfect way to enter a new decade..by the way my prayers were answered.
Hair: Tamed the 'fro
Make-up: Light and subtle
My personal style entrance into the new year and decade.
Oh yes, the bag I wore was a simple black leather (not obviously) Fendi clutch - sorry no pics, totally forgot.
So..what do you think?
p.s. This is my first WIW (What I Wore) blog. I ummed and ahhhed about publishing (because of my insecurities) want to give people who don't know me more of an insight. After all I am a fashion blogger.
