IFB Dress UP Soiree

Category: My OutfitsEyeliah @ 7:45 pm

I was not able to attend the IFB Dress Up Soiree in NYC, I wish.  Jennine requested IFB members to send in outfits for their slideshow, what a great idea!  The event was last night, the first photo below was my submitted outfit.  I thought I would utilize the ‘dress up’ aspect and I’d really like to step out of the proverbial box more in the future.

What would you wear to the soiree?

Thrifted Yellow Polka Dot Dress. Embroidered Corset, Free from Swap. Rimmel Lipstick in Alarm. Red Ballet Flats, Ebay.

    slammin corset! i wouldn’t be brave enough to don it as outerwear, but it looks great on you.

    What a fantastic bustier! I agree with Diana, red lipstick suits you very nicely 🙂

    Blue hair, red lips, yellow dress! I love the combo. I’m kind of sad I dont get to go to those kinds of events. Its funny cause I was planning a trip to NYC for the same time that never phased out. I probably could have been able to do fashion week stuff, but oh well. I guess I’ll always be a wallflower is how I feel.

    Oh that’s a fab outfit!

    I wish I’d thought about it now, I just sent one of me standing in my garden with a bottle of plant food next to me!

    WOW – I had been looking for that corset the other day – TOTALLY forgot I gave it away lol!!

    That said, I only wore it as outerwear – to clubs – so I’m glad you broke the mold with it, what a cool way to wear it!!

    sorry for not commenting for so long but I had to work the
    whole weekend… And I’m still too busy with work. It’s even less time
    to visit my favourite fashionblogs!

    But you look fantastic! I love the combination of the corsage and
    the yellow dress.
