black tie event inspiration

I have worn this Carla Zampatti dress pictured to several events. It sure is a show stopper! 

I love using red when I have an event to go to - a colour I wouldn't normally turn to. Red lipstick( Nars Heat Wave is a favourite) and black OPI nails (we don't want to be too matchy-matchy) or a nude nail for a more classic look.

When wearing a red or bright lip, I like to leave the eyes as natural as possible, lined with black liquid eyeliner. 

I have 2 go- to hair styles for an event. One is side parted waves, the other is a classic ballet bun. This dress definately called for the later. 

When a dress is detailed , I like to keep the shoes timeless a nd simple. These Zara heels are a perfect example.
