ttF Fashion Staple: Burgundy Platforms
For our second night in Vegas, I went as Marie Antoinette. I found this dress at a vintage shop for about $20. It had these hideous velvet leggings attached, which I cut off into a hot pant and added an extra layer of tulle with a petticoat. I used burgundy ribbon to create matching bows on my thigh-highs. Then I wrapped the ribbon around a trio of pearl necklaces to create a choker. The hardest part was my hair. I set it in pin curls, teased it to no end and hairsprayed it like crazy. Then I used clip-on earrings for embellishment.

The inspiration for my hair was actually Holly Madison, who had a Marie Antoinette themed birthday at the Playboy Mansion a few years ago. This year, Holly went as Tangled‘s Rapunzel for her annual Hollyween Halloween bash. My friends and I had a blast dancing the night away at Studio 54 inside MGM. Hope all of you had a fab holiday weekend!
