What I Wore: Artbound's The pARTy 2013
Last week, I got to attend a super cool fundraiser by Artbound in support of Free the Children. The theme? Beverly Hills 90210.
To be honest, I really struggled with what to wear. Since '90s fashion is back a la mode, it was difficult to find that perfect balance between not being too costume-y, and not wearing something I would don on the regular.
Since I also haven't watched Beverly Hills 90210, channeling a specific character was out of the question. After some research, I realized Brenda, Donna and Kelly didn't really have a distinct style, which made things even harder.
I raided my sister's old closet for her '90s essentials and found a great pair of high-waisted denim shorts. There was also a pretty fabulous pair of "mom jeans", but they were probably the most unflattering pair of jeans I've ever put on my body. I was originally going to wear the shorts with a sleeveless turtleneck, but in the end, I decided to go more urban and wore a long-sleeved crop top from American Apparel. I accessorized with a gold chain necklace, a men's plaid shirt from Joe Fresh (around the waist, of course) and a snapback. If I owned Timberlands, I would have definitely worn them, but my cutout boots from Aldo sufficed.
There were a ton of fantastic '90s looks and an incredible performance by Naughty by Nature so overall the evening was a success. For a recap and to learn more about Artbound, check out my post on styleswept.ca.
