Yesterday evening I went with a friend to see the ‘Die Zauberflöte – Impempe Yomlingo‘, which was interestingly came with the tag line ‘South Africa meets Mozart’. As excited as I was to see the South African reinterpretation of my favourite opera, The Magic Flute; part of my eagerness came with the outfit I planned to wear for the night.
If you follow my personal style on my blog, you will see that I am very much into D-R-A-M-A. So last night I decided to channel the Queen of the Night, and came up with this ensemble-
I love this gold lamé material which I got for a mere 13 euros (Bargain!!!) at an amazing fabric shop in Berlin called, Huco Stoffe; and since then I’ve been having fun turning the 2m material into all sorts of cover-ups-
The black jumpsuit is from Topshop, the belt is vintage and my metallic headband is from Accessorize.
I would say that gold lamé material is a quick, sure-fire way to add some Ritz & Glamour onto an ensemble. To me the texture is decadence and luxury served on a silver platter and I love the way it moves and catches the light-
My advice to all of you ladies out there is to go to your local fabric shop and see which materials you can buy to create your own makeshift shawl, scarf or cape.
What are your favourite evening wear pieces? Do you have a particular colour combination which you wear for evening occassions? For me, as you can see I am a fan of Black and Gold.
