What are you doing New Year's Eve? - Dress like Audrey Hepburn!

Psst... Have you heard about SohoKL's New Year Countdown "Partyin' Thru the Decades"?

In case you're wondering - why talk about New Year's countdown when Xmas ain't even over yet! well, I figured that if I were to write a post on Xmas Shopping - it's a tad too late, granted that it's already Xmas Eve. =P

What's the big deal about this party, you ask? Well... it's a themed countdown party! You get to dress up in your favorite fashion era and you stand a chance to win a Blackberry Torch. 

If this does tickles your fancy, and you'd like to play dress up, check out how  Audrey Hepburn has changed the fashion arena through the years. Mayhaps Miss Hepburn's seemingly effortless elegant looks will give you some inspiration to dress for the night (and win your BB Torch!) ;)

Go Lace-y ;)

Lace is in, rather, it has always been in, and had never really left! You won't go wrong here.

Dig deep into your wardrobe...

I bet all of you would have a white blouse, and flare skirt stashed somewhere. Complete the look with a scarve on the neck, or a head scarve (see further below), and nail it with a cincher belt - fashion accessories in the 1950s.

Pair up your checkered skirt from a few seasons back and throw on a turtle neck top to get Audrey's casual and chic look. Now you know why you had the skirt stashed away! Of course..the dogs are optional ;)

Hats/ Head Gears

Audrey Hepburn was famous for her hats and head gears. This trend lives on till now. I say cheers to that!
