Red & Green... and White

Me and MAC Genius Jon

Acting like a teenager while I pose for Jon. Though looks like I'm doing something else;) 

Ahhh. Better now. 

"Harlem," me and Jon

Hosting the event!

Owner of company.

Don't you hate these lazy eye shots!

Dancing to NY music!

There's always a reason to get dressed up. Especially when there's a party involved. And even moreso when I'm asked to host said party....

A few weeks ago, a new company launched in Atlanta, one involving women wearing heels (makes sense to me) and I was lucky enough to be asked to host. In exchange, I'd get some pink pumps, which ultimately didn't work out. The organizers got me the wrong size. In all of my preparedness for the worst, I carried my latest shoe acquisition to be on the safe side.

My intention was to rock a serious color-blocked ensemble: red mini, emerald green silk top, pink pumps. How fantastic would that have looked, right!? Fortunately, my white peep-toes worked just as well. In fact, the starch white added a great balance to the red/green combo. In retrospect, I liked it much better. Much more my style.

The party was sexy fun. Though blazing hot (remove bolero here),  I danced with my friend from Harlem (last pic), and thanks to my friend Jon (1st  pic), I was captured heisting some pink feathers for a friend that wants to use the plumes for a crafty project... hey, if I couldn't wear the pink shoes, at least I could tickle myself with feathers.

I still can't wait to wear the 5" pink stilettos I was given as consideration for my time!

 Skirt: Zara; Top: vintage Vertigo;  Jacket: H&M  Shoes: Sam Edelman; Cuffs: A.B. Schwartz and vintage panther bracelet; Ring: purchased in Monaco; Earrings: Found at Loehmann's

LOVE this outfit! I often where colors that people think "don't match". Something like green and red is bold and unconventional...which is why I love it! Great choice. And yes, the white shoes are hot!

Jennifer said...

kenda said...

Bren Herrera said...
