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?

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

  3. Hannele says:

    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.
