Fashion Re-Imagined >> Party Pretty in Game of Thrones Inspired Style

With the premier of Game of Thrones Season 4 just a few weeks away (April 6th) , we are going wild for anything and everything Game of Thrones related. We have already posted a few Fun Recipes for your Game of Thrones Party.  Today we are focusing our attention on  style inspired by Game of Thrones.  Our friends over at Great Gets put together this fun pictorial which will not only get you in the mood for more Game of Thrones, it might even inspire your own fashion choices.  Party Pretty!

 

Unfortunately, the outfits in the slideshow were not sourced but we think any of these dresses from Shopbop would be fabulous to wear to a Game of Thrones viewing party. Can't you just imagine Melisandre or Cersei Lannister choosing to wear one of these fierce red dresses today?

Dress Like Lady Gaga – Halloween Bacon Costumes

Dress Like Lady Gaga - Halloween Bacon Costumes

Yes, you are seeing this image correctly.  That is Lady Gaga wrapped in bacon at the MTV VMAs 2010.  We guess she really likes the meat since just this week, the Huffington Post posted pictures of Lady Gaga wearing a meat corset.

All these pictures got us thinking — Halloween is around the corner.  You can re-create this iconic meat lovers look — even attend a costume party as a meat loving couple or entire meat wearing family. Don bacon costumes!

Venetian Mask Halloween Costume – Unique & Elegant!

Venetian Mask Halloween Costume - Unique & Elegant!Every once in a while I come across a picture or a photo that inspires me.  This one popped up on my Facebook feed.  Admittedly, I am extremely biased but my niece's gorgeous piercing blue eyes staring out from behind that incredible  Venetian blue and gold mask made me wonder if this Halloween rather than donning the usual scary costume or sexy fantasy costume we might consider  more refined, almost elegant Halloween attire.  I must admit, after my truly scary Halloween experience being stalked by a crazy dressed  in a Clockwork Orange costume, I get a bit freaked out by Halloween.  Sometimes I believe Halloween is used as an excuse for people to “try on” behaviors and personae that are unacceptable in every day life.   But I digress.

Light Blue Venetian Mask

The point of this post is to suggest switching it up this Halloween – rather than spend a fortune on a one wear costume, raid your closet or better yet buy yourself that long coveted cocktail dress you can wear again and again and add a stunning  Venetian mask. You can even create a couples Venetian mask that is both easy and fabulous or join forces with your girlfriends and together make a jaw dropping entrance.  (This would make a great teen costume too especially if all of your friends wore different but coordinating masks!!) Elegance is forever chic and  always sexy!
