I’ve put together two party looks for a fun, flirty party this winter 09. Each look was inspired by glamor, kind of like Marilyn Monroe. But updated for a modern party girl who likes the golden age of Hollywood. You’ll see that I paired a satin corset (one is a pleated corset and one is a ruched corset but both are from Charlotte Russe!) with a fun black skirt. One black skirt is a mesh tiered number by Forever 21, and the other is a bubble skirt from Forever 21. Each look got a faux fur shrug, a tiara element (either an actual tiara or a clip for the hair with a tiara symbol), nail polish and black liquid eyeliner.

Black liquid eyeliner is great for a glamorous look, especially for parties. Singer Taylor Swift is always using black eyeliner (winged just a bit out on the edges) on just the tops of her eyelids.
