The Stylist-Wannabe's Latest Victims

Earlier this month, I was given the task to come up with a complete head-to-toe look for four people who thought I'm the closest thing to a Hollywood celebrity stylist. These are not local celebrities I'm helping dress up and I definitely do not do fashion styling for a living, these are my friends slash officemates and my brother turned sister I'm helping glam up for our office's year-ender slash Christmas party. Was I really given this assignment or did I volunteer to do it?! I don't remember. Anyhow, all four expressed how they do not want to be seen looking too typical (by typical they mean wearing an off-the-rack dress, coat&tie or something that was designed by someone and was then badly executed by a neighborhood seamstress). The year's theme is red and black - employees can either wear red or black or a combination of both. As a self-confessed color-blind, I wasn't going for red. Aside from the fact that I've mistaken orange and brown to be red in the past, I didn't see red as something that'll look good on my subjects (no offense to you ladies!). The unanimous choice - BLACK. They didn't want to arrive at the party looking like witches in a an all-black ensemble. Of course I wasn't going to be seen in a posse of freaks at the party, all-black didn't even cross my mind! The final look was going to be a combination of black, grey and white - talk about being color-blind! lol... So after less than two weeks of scrambling vintage stores, malls and closets, the styling project had decent results. And yes, some heads turned 360 degrees (ala Linda Blair in The Exorcist) when we arrived fashionable late! Check out our photos!!!
