Lookbook: Party For One

Opportunities wouldn’t be called “opportunities” if they come everyday. A few days ago, friends from Demu Label asked me to model for their new collection (stay tuned for that) with Crystal from Hair Junkie as the hair artist. Not only Crystal is nice but she is also extremely creative. It’s not surprising that I went self-timer camera crazy when I got home from the shoot with my pretty hair.

The mask was just something I picked up from the Dollar Store. I’ve always wanted to go to a Masquerade. There was this one time where I got invited to a kinky Masquerade party with live burlesque show and lingerie models- Except it was at a gay club. Having been to a gay bar in San Francisco (I know, so typical!) with men holding each other by leashes, wearing nipple clamps and bondage outfits I have discovered that gay clubs are not my thing... and that I'm pretty "boring" when it comes to expressing my sexuality in public. Oh well, one day my dollar store mask and I will find a Masquerade party to crash.








Shirt: Zara
Skirt: Forever 21
Heels: Jessica Simpson

  19. You look smokin'! I think you should get dolled up just like that--mask and all--and go to a chic cocktail lounge for Halloween. So much more sophisticated than the hoards of girls in slutty Halloween costumes at clubs.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I've always wanted to go to a masquerade as well! You put that outfit together so wonderfully!

    very chic.

  30. Omg I love it! The dress, the mask, it's all amazing! So glamoures :)
    Funny cause I just looked a make-up look for masks from Michelle Pan with a mask like that :D

    ReplyDelete
  31. Girl lingerie models @ the gay club??? That sounds like a great idea for a club that caters to straight guys and lesbians. I don't think anyone has ever tried to tap into both those markets---there's a joke in there somewhere, but I can't find it, I've lost my mojo! But you haven't, you look great. Have a nice weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  32. you look great! i wouldn't have known that it was a mask from a dollar store. :)

    ReplyDelete
