As we know, I love me some fab shoes and clothes. In addition to clothes and shoes I also have been known to change my entire look with some frequency. Hair color, cut (I just got bangs in December and am already considering growing the out!), and overall hair style. In some ways this can make each day a special event; but today I am going to talk about special event style.
I am lucky that working in the Entertainment business that I often find myself with the exciting opportunity to go to cool events in TV, Film and Music.
Additionally in my work with The March of Dimes, KSP and I have participated in some wonderful events as speakers and presenters.
All of this means that in addition to my ever-growing affinity for cotton, lycra and slouchy comfy clothing, I must be able to put together an outfit and overall look that shows that I am presentable in public!
The good news is that I do love to dress up for special events. Hair, makeup, clothes, shoes, the whole bit. Now that it’s Spring, it seems that it’s special event season in our family so it was time to gear up and figure out a go-to look.
I like to prepare and plan but I am one of those who pops into Walgreens for an eye patch for E or baby lotion for Q and leaves with an armful of goodies. Today was no different. In addition to the makeup goodies I selected for my special event look, I also got some awesome bubbles and Winto-green Lifesavers to which I might be a teensy bit addicted.
Once home, it was time to develop my plan of attack and practice.
After prepping my face, I decided to take a photo with no makeup to show the contrast of the outcome.
The finished product.
Time to get dressed.
Overall, I think I have a good plan from hair, to makeup, to outfit and shoes. I am ready! Playing dress up most certainly makes today ‘anewfavoriteday.’ And, when all is said and done, I get to come home to my most special event each day…dinner time with my minis and then our new Bubbles!
What’s your special event style? Do you like dressing up?
