masquerading around




Dress: Prabal Gurung; Shoes: Valentino; Clutch: Vintage; Mask: The Midway on Etsy; Lips: Stila "Beso"; Earrings: Forever 21

When life gives you the opportunity to dress up and don a mask for an evening -- seriously, how can you say no? While this is a bit belated, I wanted to share what I wore for this past New Year's Eve as it was one of my favorites to date. You may have spied on Instagram that the man friend and I headed to the symphony hall here in San Francisco for a masquerade ball to ring in the New Year. Part of what I love so much about evenings like that (aside from the excuse to wear this lace veil-inspired mask) is just how diverse the crowd can be -- young, old, those who waltz and those who rock a mean "Harlem Shake". I'll definitely remember our evening for years to come so thank you, fine folks of San Francisco for reminding me why I love this crazy city so much. And thank you, Dan, for a wonderful night -- I know I've already said it, but here's to 2014!
