Party Time Excellent: Top Steady

Stoked for the weekend? You bet! I love a good party and I’m always down for sweet tunes, rad convos and most importantly, break out a fun fancy outfit. While party dressing has always gotten down to the formula of a nice dress, cute purse and sleek stilettos, it’s so easy to sit there and run out of ideas. However, you will never get bored when you #LivinLaVariNaDah!

A) The Mesh Top

You know that you are bound to sweat in a small, enclosed space. You know that there’s going to be HUNDREDS of people cramped in the same room as you are whether it be at Le Bain or your local dive bar. Seriously, no look is going to fly without one. Speaking of mesh shirts, more is always more when you pair it with cutesy camp accessories! If you are bustier like I am, go for a higher-necked scoop silhouette that will reveal, but conceal. See?! Isn’t the perfect outfit waiting for you when you wanna rock a mesh top?

B) Band Tee

Sunglasses are completely optional (NOTE: it’s totally a-OK to wear ’em when you have really red eyes from PG-unfriendly activities), but a band shirt ain’t. Can’t get over the days when you sang along to Backstreet Boys in a hairbrush while wearing a shirt with their faces? Time to pull it out!

If you ever feel so intimidated to talk to new people, let the shirt do the talking for you. Not only can you break the ice beyond a small “Hi, how are you?”, you can end up making a friend for life! Seriously, what better way can you start a riot when you bring up your favorite band?! Buy a ticket, take the ride and get a shirt. Throw it on with some crazy pants, statement shoes, sick necklace and you’re good to go!

What are your favorite party staples? What is your first party outfit? Feel free to dish some tips!

Dreamer. Seeker. Achiever. Is there any other word that can't describe me? Born in Jakarta, raised in Singapore and educated in Los Angeles, I was bound to trot around the globe one #ootd at a time. While fashion has been a top interest, I also enjoy pop culture, beauty and traveling. Whether it be a fashion show, DIY-ing the latest catwalk-inspired accessory or going to a music festival, there is nothing that I can ever miss out in life. Hence, #LivinLaVariNaDah is born from the desire to not ever FOMO again!
