Anthropologie necklace (similar {I actually like it better..}); secondhand shirt, $1 (similar); vintage culottes, $6 (similar); JCPenney pumps (similar); thrifted bag, $4 (similar)

This look was inspired by Desiree from Thread Ethic. I wore it to my work annual party a couple weeks ago. This year's theme was Tangier Escape with alcohol, gambling (BlackJack anyone?), cigars, and belly dancers. I didn't know what to do amidst all the worldliness. There were also huge snakes a la Britney circa 2001, which was pretty scary!!! cool.

Even though there wasn't a dress code this year (Thank goodness!!), I still wanted to dress up. I haven't been dressing up as much during the week because I have to play ping pong. (Yes, have to. It is not an option. Must. beat. the guys.) So I wore my vintage tiny-waist skants (= skirts + pants), platform heels (definitely not suitable for pong), and red lipstick! ..and apparently a sheet white face?

For my hair, I did a faux bob again. It's a lot easier with my wavy hair so I'll have to do this hair style more often.

Also, what I wore to last year's party.

  1. You look absolutely gorgeous Elaine. I kind of played with a similar look here, just the skirt wasn't a bright colour:

  9. Ha!  When I read Tangier, I immediately thought of Tangier Island (Virginia) and the Tangier Disease associated with it.  Didn't know another Tangier existed!  Thanks for helping me learn something new!! 

    Stunning outfit, and the faux bob looks wonderful on you! You get the best of both worlds!

  15. How did your hair become wavy? Or is it naturally that way? Sorry if you have already said this or have been asked this a million times...

  19. I love this look. I think you look very classic and polished here, while still pulling off a fun look. Also, the red lip is fantastic!!!
