With the recent revival of costume jewelry, everyone can look their Hollywood best without breaking the bank. Personally, I like to mix high and low fashion jewelry to create an eclectic party look. In my make-believe world, I would pair these decadent Missoni Floral Drop Earrings ($420) with some funky stacked bangles from Forever 21 to temper its delicate nature. I say go for the gusto and pick one dramatic piece to complement your look. The rest of your jewels should take backseat and complement the showstopper. Get it? Got it? Good.
Every girl knows the key to a sizzling hot outfit are Fab party shoes. No joke. With that said, let's get down to business. Fanciful footwear come a dime a dozen so I suggest choosing a pair that suits your personality. While it was hard choosing between our favorite shoe designers, my half-sassy, half-smart personality will shine through in these Christian Louboutin Pigalle Paillettes Pumps ($945). Swoon.
Now that you've got yourself a temperature-rising dress, let's proceed to the adornments. First up: Fab party clutches. Despite Carine Roitfeld's mentality — she prefers to keep her hands in her pockets — no party outfit is complete without a snazzy bag. Picture Maria Sharapova's look without her sparkly clutch; it would have felt sparse.
When it comes to fancy bags, it's all about the details: look for sequins, ruffles, velvet, satin, tulle, rosettes, and so on. And today, you don't have to spend a fortune to get something inspired.
