Who needs Fortune when you got the Wheel of Fashion (and awesome clothes to go with it)? At Bebe and Strut120’s event on Friday, the cute Wheel of Fashion was the centre of attention. As I entered Bebe’s Mumbai flagship store, someone was already spinning the Wheel of Fashion. The task– put together a look from the clothes in the store that fit the theme the Wheel throws up for you.
As luck would have it, my theme was- Party All Night. (I’m not a party animal). But hey, a fashionista is supposed to put together looks in a jiffy, so I took it up as a style challenge and was happily encouraged by the Strut120 and Bebe gals.
Luckily, Bebe’s got plenty of party dresses and separates in a range of silhouettes and bling variations to keep a fashion lover busy. I loved a brocade jacket and skirt, and tried on the jacket with a gold dress. Next, I was extremely tempted to try on some corsets (I’ve never worn one before), and finally wore a black sequinned one paired with black tights that had leather-finish inserts.
I never thought I could carry off a corset given my curvy figure, but Bebe’s corset was easy to wear, looked great and fit me well though I did straps for extra support. Most importantly, it was super comfortable, and I didn’t need to suck in my stomach or hold my breath. A big thumbs-up to that!
My final look was a sequinned V-neck dress with stringy back, paired with my black heels and a black shimmery clutch.
BTW, some of the other looks on the Wheel of Fortune were Work It At Work, Date Night and Neon. There were some great fluorescent pieces in the store, and a couple of girls did a great job with the neon look! Amidst general chatter, finger food and drinks, I bumped into a couple of friends, one of whom advised me to take a fashion risk. 😉 And oh, there were cupcakes too. A sweet end to a fun stylish evening.
