Modern Elegance

Day Dreaming

Late one night browsing through pinterest looking at lady Gaga’s Oscar look, I couldn’t stop thinking about how glamorous she looked. Her style has changed so much from the meat days. I can confidently put Lady Gaga in my top 5 closet raids.✊🏼Her Oscar look is everything I would have looked for If I attended. 😭 First off, it was a gown-suit. The two things I obsess over: dresses, and pants; bravo to you Brandon Maxwell.👏🏻👏🏻 The dress had a structured sweetheart cut that folded at the sides (😍), it parted at the center of the bodice into a half skirt, and pant (😍😍), and she topped off the look with 12″ heels (😍😍😍)!!! All I can think of was- Modern Elegance.

Playing dress up

If I could walk around wearing this gown, I would. (trust me, I would) Unfortunately, for me I didn’t have the gown in my closet, but I did have a full closet though.☝🏻 Before, I start with my outfit, I want to share my hair, and makeup.

Since I’ve been trying to grow out my hair, I’ve been going with the ponytail look (which hasn’t disappointed me, yet) I was going to do it again, and half way through brushing the top I realized how nice it looked down. So I left it down. I made the part above my eyebrow, and combed it to the sides, and pinned it. The curls are my natural curls (I know 😍🙌🏻)

Makeup

Eyes: Tarte’s Tartelette in bloom palette. (funny girl (lid), flower child (transition), jetsetter (crease)).

Liner: NYC liquid eyeliner, the best drugstore liner.

Lashes: Ardell in “Demi 120.”

Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow pomade in “Ebony”

Highlight: Colourpop “Lunch Money.

Lips: are MAC in “Creme cup.”

Satin dreams

Looking for the perfect outfit was difficult. Like I said before “I don’t have the gown in my closet” (why don’t I?) I ended up finding a couple of pieces to work with and this was my final result.

Top: A knit, long sleeve, crop top. Purchased from a local boutique.

Pants: Satin, wide leg, champaign, high waisted pants. Forever 21 $27.90

Coat: Collar less, blush, blazer like coat. Forever 21 SOLD OUT.

Earrings: H&M $12.95 SOLD OUT

Ring: My Grandmother’s Alexandrite passed down to me. 

It definitely isn’t no Brandon Maxell, but it is my little piece of modern elegance. I hope you can recreate a moment of glam just like I did.
