What I Wore: Barenaked Ladies

Last week, I attended the P&G Beauty and Grooming Awards, where I was a finalist in the Best Beauty or Fashion Blog category. Before making an appearance at such a high-profile event, I have to admit that there were a lot of WHATTOWEAROMGIDONTKNOWWHATTOWEAR freak-outs on my part…before I finally settled on three possible outfits…this one being my favourite.

I didn’t want to be overdressed, and I really wanted to rock my new Margiela with H&M bodysuit, so it was decided…I would wear my new leather skirt from Club Monaco, paired with the aforementioned bodysuit (that le bf hates with a passion I’ve never seen before), silver candy clutch, and a blinged out Zara necklace. I even made le bf shoot these photos before the awards…and then…I changed my mind. Worried that someone else would get the same brilliant idea, I decided to hang up my “nude” top until another such occasion, opting for a safer frock from the Lanvin at H&M collection at the very last minute.

When I arrived at the awards, I breathed a sigh of relief at not having worn my intended outfit…because someone else was already rocking that EXACT SAME LOOK! Ok, not really, but pretty darn close. Fashion Magazine’s Randi Bergman, wore the bodysuit and the candy clutch, paired with a leather skirt from Carven. Leather Skirt + Bodysuit + Candy Clutch = pretty much the same outfit. Though if you’ve seen Anna Dello Russo’s Fashion Shower vid, you’d know that had I worn it, we could both shrug it off and say that “we did the right choice”, and then do a dance off or something…but still…I’m glad that I changed my mind that day.

And though I haven’t actually worn this outfit to the awards, these photos are just too fun not to share! I’ll just have to wear this to work one day…and traumatize all of my colleagues…or maybe wear it to one of our date nights and watch le bf squirm while trying to block my faux bra from public view. Boys! Am I right?
