.... { what I wore to ALT'S Clue party } ....


One of the things I was most excited  about going to ALT summit
was the anticipation of their big Clue party....

and  WOW.. did it even exceeded my expectations!
I had the best time...
I  found a perfect place to perch myself...
for the most extraordinary party people watching ever....
Creativity and beauty abounded every which way you looked!
When I signed up for Alt in August, (it sold out in just about 30 minutes)
What to wear to the party was eagerly at the top of my to do list!!

When I found  this tulle perfection in Paris this November at L'Opera
I knew this was going to be the perfect beginning to a fabulous party outfit!


I added a sequin jacket from Zara...
to which I attached  a vintage fox fur collar...
added a J Crew beaded white T,
sparkly heels...
a vintage crystal evening bag...
a pair of my encrusted pearl cuffs....

and the 'crowning glory'...
my tiny crown  creation of rhinestone whimsy.
Nothing like a tiny crown to make you feel like
 the belle of the ball :)
It truly was a magical night...

as always dear friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

    1. Catherine thank you so very much for your kind words! My crowns are still in the development stage. When did you need one by? Maybe I could do a special order for you. I must say I so enjoyed wearing my crown. I found it to be the perfect size, small enough to just say whimsy and large enough to say special occasion! I think you wearing one to your birthday would be perfection and would be the perfect accessory to celebrate your wonderful self!
