party session

Confession from the weekend rave


I like to go out , its fun! I get to drink, I get to mingle , I get to pretend I am French to get free drinks its great ! And most of all I get to dress up! However , this one particular night , I encountered one of the most interesting remarks from a drunken person. It was interesting to say the least.

Let me paint a picture, I was wearing my trusty fun as tweed hot pants from forever 21. They are amazing , I love hot pants, comfortable and they make your legs look amazing. Matched with a loose Zara stripped cotton tank and leather patterned oxfords, I was comfortable and personal thought I looked amazing, for a number of reason. Firstly, I looks pretty good just the right balance of riskaay, flirty and polished, just the right amount of spark to get me a free drink . I wasn’t dressed slutty, the outfit was a typical Claire outfit and from fellow friends , I received many complements on how I was nicely dressed. And secondly, I knew if I was a unique outfit, that was a bandage dress or something tacky that I would attracted decent people, its a none science.

Enter, some random drunken guy. Yes, he was cute. Yes, he was well dressed , I did like his watch , I would wear that.Conversation was okish, going along nicely until he says to me . ” your really hot, you know you would get more guys if you dressed cuter’

Now , let that soak in. My firstly response was , Yes ! I am now a successful man repeller and secondly, what a dick head. But, his comments made me think, does it all come down to the clothes or lack of clothing on my body ,are guys going to more  attracted to me if I wear the same thing as the girl next to me ?  Its seemed that bandage dress and a  life as sheep is the way to win some dick head heart. Now, I know I can’t change some party boys mind, cause to a degree he is very correct. And its sad that to be notified people think they must camouflage into the crowd. I say wear what you want , but first and for most wear it for yourself, never anyone but yourself and trust me you will be surprised by the result


On Point in Flats

Although, I am slight below average height I still gravitate towards a silk flat when in doubt for a night out. There is just something about the sleek sophistication of a flat. When everyone is wearing less appealing ‘heels’, or shall I say less exciting. Wearing flats while everyone wears heels , just gives you the upper hand. You look polished , sleek , sophisticated and when you have had one to many ( although that never happens) you can still walk.A good flat can really complete any look , my favourite ‘disco flats’ is the trust and my lover the brogue. The humble brogue is just wonderful, leather detailing or not, it really lifts ever outfit to a sophisticated land where you a deemed a little more  cosmopolitan then fellow party goers. One of my favourites is a nice little pair buy Zimmerman, they tossed it up a little , but still kept a classic shape.

My second winner is the Mary Jane style pointed toe flat. This is essential when mastering the flats attack in a see of heels, always , always , always have pointed toe and never show the toe. The Mary Jane strap in these little Tabitha Simmons are darling. So next time party invitations come knocking on your door, or more appropriately filling ones news feed, take and  stand against blister and horrible tacky  heels or dare I say colour blocked wedges, go flat and you will stand out.
