You know what the best place to get fashion inspiration is? Your mind. Who knows what you can come up with? For example, when I'm bored, I just think of stuff, or, as normal people may call it, daydreaming. A little while back, I had imagined a story based off of the Phantom of the Opera...and Cinderella. The story is about this girl named Tamara who gets into a fire when she's five, leaving her with no parents and a huge burn on the side of her face, onto her shoulder, and down to about her elbow.
Ten years later, Tamara was forced to go to a school dance with her best friend Analyn. When she's there, she meets a recently dumped wallflower named Michael. He asked her to dance, and she said yes; the rest is history. Then, when the clock struck twelve, she hurried from the building, only leaving behind an earring.
Down here, this is roughly what I imagined Eliza was wearing to the dance. It would be perfect for a costume party, or even prom or any other school dance or special, non-Halloween event if you're daring. Check it out:
Eliza's Dance Outfit
First, I started off with a one-shoulder dress to cover her burns. Next, I found a mask that covers the burned half of her face. Then, I added black and white striped tights and gold high top Reeboks, because you can't really run to meet your curfew in stilettos without breaking your ankle; plus, they're cool. I have a pair in neon pink. Seriously.
Finally, I accessorized with a tiny clutch bag and eclectic stacks of rings. Don't forget the 'lost earring'...or earring cuff, to be exact.
