OOTD: “Rocker Chic at FFFW”


Tonight for the “Full Figured and Fabulous” Modeling Competition at Full Figured Fashion Week™, I went for the “Rocker Chic” look. I admit my inspiration was completely from Rihanna, once again. I saw her with these “earlace” earrings on last year and I finally tracked down a reasonable pair for myself. An earlace is a pair of earrings that is made like a necklace. They connect from ear to ear. I hadn’t shopped on Ebay in years until I ran across these last month on the site and I ordered them (Earlace, $8)

The dress is a “Herve Leger” inspired piece from Ashley Stewart. The Herve brand will run you over $1,000 and this one from Ashley Stewart is only $50. I usually don’t go this clingy but I said what the hell, I’m in NYC, go all out. To complete the look I added the “it” shoe of the moment, the Sam Edelman “Lorissa” studded pump ($200 from Nordstrom). I already had these in suede once before and these are the leather version. No joke but they sell out so quickly that you have to buy them right when you see them available in your size. Rounding the look out is the spiked bracelet that I just got yesterday from my fave jewelry store in NYC. So after the event I went to Times Square to get my photo op on. Afterall, where else to flaunt but in the “City of Lights”, NYC that is!!!
