A Gala Tap Dance – 2017

I couldn’t find the dress…literally…not-in-my-closet.
Shit. (F*ck me)

I know, I know – everyone is running around hectic for the season.
I just hate when I have a game plan in mind and things go South.
Especially when the timeline is tight.

It was 5:15 am, I was going to have a hell of a day~I didn’t need this.
I should have gathered everything the night before…

And then something brilliant happened.

I ran into a dress I bought 12 years ago in Columbus Circle:

Wrinkles from me taking a photo the next day after wearing it.

Split bell sleeves

  • Blair Delmonico (stored closed, but the brand still makes jewelry)
  • Steel Blue/Green Silk Satin
  • Drawstring collar
  • Very Large Bell-Sleeves with wrist to shoulder slits
  • Elastic waist.
  • I didn’t use the grey sash.

Nice – the cut is totally in and it’s not black. Easy to wear – bonus.

Add:

  • Maison Martin Margiela Gold Metal Belt, made of brass
  • John Galliano Navy/Green/Gold platform heels
  • Gold Box Clutch
  • Green/Blue Drop Earrings

voilà!

We have a last-minute outfit! And something different from the rest of the crowd.
I felt Great!

Thank goodness that people didn’t notice I had 3rd day straightened hair, make-up put on over the full day’s make-up, no shower after a workout, all because I managed to lose my phone and had to spend the time I would have used to get ready, to find-the-damn-phone.

Doesn’t matter…the event? I slayed it!

All with a little tap dancing at 5 am that morning.

Master was impressed.
BTW, I found the phone.
(And, yes, I will keep the dress for another 12 years re-appearance~)
