An Inaguration Bash Outfit


Here is a little Polyvore set I put together to enter in a contest sponsored by SimplySoles.com. The challenge was to use at least one item from their online store and create a set around it with the theme being what you would wear to an Inauguration celebration. I decided to put together a casual chic look that I would wear if I were attending a party thrown by a friend. I like to keep it real folks, it's not like I would ever be attending a fancy one in Washington. What I was immediately drawn to on the site were these fabulous pearlized purple leather shoes by Chie Mihara. I absolutely love them! Then I picked out the gorgeous brown leather clutch by Frye to accompany the look. I felt like the shoes would look great with a light, flowy dress, and when I saw this silk dress from Halston I knew it was perfect. Throw in an amazing YSL animal skin effect necklace, a snazzy cocktail ring from Miriam Haskell, and a chunky wood Coach bangle and you're all set to party in style!
