What I Wore: The Perks of Wearing Wallpaper

CHANEL Yorkdale Boutique Opening - Nov 28, 2013 (10)

Yesterday, I wrote about the new CHANEL boutique that opened at Yorkdale Shopping Centre last week, and today I will show you what I ended up wearing to the event. When I first saw this Zara ensemble online, I’m pretty sure cartoon hearts started popping up above my head, so of course, order it I did. So when I was standing in front of my closet, fretting about having nothing to wear, this “suit” became my last-minute solution. And better yet, it went perfectly with my treasured CHANEL shoes. Mission accomplished!

After finally putting it all together, I waltzed into le bf’s office to ask for his opinion…only to see his jaw drop to the floor, and hear him beg me…literally beg me not to wear my Zara masterpiece to CHANEL. I believe it sounded something like this: “Oh, hun, no. No, no. Oh, no. Please, no. No.”, all the while covering his mouth with his hands. Undeterred by le bf’s pleas, as you can see, I still wore my wallpaper-like getup to the party…and I am happy to report that I have yet to regret it. It was a fun outfit to wear in a sea of black and white, so who cares if the pattern was a tad (a lot?) wallpaper-ish? I had fun with my blogger friends, made my Christmas (and lifetime) wishlists, and finally took my precious CHANEL shoes out for a spin! What’s not to love? Sometimes it’s not a bad idea to go against the grain.

So what do you think? Are you with le bf on this one, or do you think this is a fun look? Share your honest opinions in the comments.
