Outfit Of The Night |Look 1|Chris Brown After Party #zzlooks

Heyyyyyy you guyyyys !!!!!!!!

So I was given a great business opportunity from my uncle which came with a couple perks. Perks like attending Chris Brown’s after party in VIP or free tickets to his concert (we missed the local one). Even though Rihanna is life, I was still wondering omg what am I going to wear though?? I don’t go anywhere this nice anymore, I don’t get invited anywhere, what do I do? lol.

How does one dress trendy for a night at the CLURB (yes, clurb) and still look classy? I didn’t want to look out of place and I didn’t want to spend when I had a closet of Fashion Nova clothes I had no business ordering.

Here is what I put together starting with (for me) the base of the outfit: The Dress.

Black Bodycon Dress – $5 Mandee

The goal was to find a dress nice but simple enough to go under my duster. I knew black was my safe space and since I was super bloated that week, that was def the way to go to hide all me nooks n’ crannies.

I actually found it at a Mandee at the mall. From my understanding, Mandee is now a $10 and under store? Usually means everything is $5-$10 but there were some cheap gems in there. The way this dress feels is super stretchy and comfortable. Can’t beat $5 either. I kept looking before I settled and I’m glad I did because I would have ended up spending way way WAAAY more.

Ease Up Snake Print Duster – Fashion Nova NOW$39.99

I couldn’t get a good picture of the duster but here is what it looks like on the Fashion Nova site. See how the black brings out the print but its not too much? I actually paid $50.00 for the duster but its $40.00 now!

This is so comfortable too and makes me feel tall. I’ve always worn dusters for years as a go-to. It dresses things up with minimal effort. 😉

But then we needed shoes…..

The thing with me and shoes is I can’t wear heels because I’m actually disabled in my right knee. It’s hard to do a lot so I KNEW heels weren’t an option for a night in NY (even though I bought the heels in the pic above in nude lol just sitting there collecting dust). I went on the hunt to find the right shoes and came across these at Burlington Coat factory.

Snake Print Gladiator sandals (Short) – Burlington Coat Factory – $9.99 (roughly)

Now you know as soon as I saw the price, I threw them in the cart. $9.99? Can’t beat that and how crazy is it that it matches the duster so well? The only thing is that this style isn’t the best look on me in my opinion. I had to text my sister to ask her if she would take them just in case I didn’t like them with the outfit because it was on clearance.

Once I tried them on, I decided I would keep them for the comfort alone. I couldn’t believe how comfortable they were. It was like walking on memory foam…..kinda…lol. I actually had to look up the duster on the website and try to compare colors but once I saw it at home I was good.

Faux Animal Skin Clutch – TJ Maxx – $19.99

The accessories are the fun part, especially the hand bags and clutches! I saw this at TJ Maxx while looking for my new fall handbag and grabbed it as a definite because of the price. I Couldn’t believe it was only $19.99 and it’s crazy because I ALWAYS forget this part when I go somewhere a little more dressed up; The bag. I don’t own many clutches but I have plenty of big hand bags lol. I didn’t want to carry much at all so this was a great option due to the strap being long. It’s super spacious too. I was able to hold my phone and some makeup, a mini Versace perfume and my cards. The jewel on top was a cute touch but I was a little meh about it because I like my hardware and jewelry to match color-wise but it ended up working out well.

Necklace, Grill, Hoop Earrings, Watch, Bangles – Gifts and Various Locations

I mix and match costume jewelry and real jewelry. Does anyone else do that? lol as long as it matches, I’m good. The necklace ( Far left) was a gift I received for Christmas a few years ago. It’s one of my favorite necklaces and I don’t wear it often so I made sure I took the opportunity to do so. The Grill is from Johnny Dang and Co. which is where Houston rapper Paul Wall makes his grillz. I don’t wear it too often because it’s a bold statement for me but isn’t it cute? It’s inspired by the grillz Beyonce and the supermodels had on in the video Yonce.

The watch I found derping around CVS in the makeup section knowing I don’t need anymore makeup. Since this recent outfit search, i’ve earned quite the eye for snake print. I can spot it a mile away and that is exactly how this happened. I snagged it once I saw it was $9.99 because I already knew it would match. The silver double-hoops are Guess for $5.99? I’m not sure but I got them on sale. The bangles were from a Bebe watch set I own but the watch is Rose gold so It wasn’t an option in my opinion.

This is the finishing look. Sorry the shoes are cut off in the photo. Photography mistake lol but you get the gist. I was comfortable all night. It was a little hard getting out of a SUV once we arrived there but I had my handy- dandy duster to help. That night was quite an experience I’ve never had before and I’m so blessed for this opportunity….and this outfit.

My makeup look wasn’t what I was going for but it looks nice I suppose lol. I was in a rush and had my grandmother staying over as well with us. I used Fenty 🙂 , Tacha, Nars, LA Girl Pro Concealer, and some random drug store products for lip gloss and an eyebrow pencil.

The look I was going for was achieved. I was comfortable, I didn’t spend a ton and I got to sit most of the night so my knee wasn’t too swollen haha. It was overall a great night and I can’t wait to get dressed up again. I’ll be sure to share.

Thanks for reading ❤

With Love,
