I’m a Peacock, Duh

January 28, 2012
Dear Kelsey,

Well, if you ever wondered what what I would wear to a masquerade ball…

I bought this dress over a year ago to wear to some event or other, but I didn’t actually end up wearing it– it’s really too overwhelming for a petite. The bodice will absolutely not stay up for me for me either (I’m thinking the plastic boning is too weak for all the fabric). But, fun for a masquerade ball, right? And maybe some kind of Marie Antoinette costume for Halloween one year if I happen to be feeling ambitious.

I’m wearing a Lulu’s dress, Anthropologie scarf, my usual ken + dana rings, Assets by Sara Blakely tights (these are reversible to grey and awesome!), and platform pumps from Talbots. Yes, I said Talbots. I picked up an extra 40% off and free shipping coupon from Extra Petite and got these towering heels for $38. The quality isn’t quite as good as Ann Taylor, but most Talbots shoes come in wide, which is a huge plus for me.

Hope you had a fun weekend too!
