What We Wore – To The Project Runway 10th Anniversary Party

Last week, David invited John and I to be his dates for the Project Runway 10th Anniversary Party at the Highline Ballroom. We had a blast — sweating profusely, sipping cucumber/mint cocktails, and rubbing elbows with all our Project Runway favorites. I glimpsed Heidi Klum! Jay McCarrol told me to bleach my hair platinum! We even after-partied with Mondo! It was epic. Here’s what we wore:

This is one of David’s dresses from Selahdor Spring ’13! It’s silk chiffon with leather details and it fit me like a dream!

The Cher Platform from Matiko. I am OBSESSED with these shoes. The graphic print fabric wedge and the neon yellow leather upper are both show-stopping and super-sturdy. Literally, the most comfortable pair of platforms I’ve ever owned!

Since the dress is supposed to be the star, and my shoes come in a close second, I went for minimal accessories. Metallic silver nails (Smoke & Mirrors by Sonia Kashuk) and a high shine, reptile texture vintage clutch. The snake vertebrae ring is also from Selahdor’s Spring ’13 collection. David joined forces with Boston stylist and jewelry designer, Christen Mitchell, to create a complementary collection of jewelry for the line. Get ready to die for these accessories, world.

John is wearing a skull print blazer he scored at Virgin Blak. In classic John style, he had this bad boy altered and tailored to fit perfectly. Paired with H&M shorts, all-black Chuck Taylors, and our Encino Sunglasses  from Calico.

David wears John’s vintage-inspired ascot shirt, also from Virgin Blak — paired with H&M shorts and vintage shoes. I love this shirt. John wears it all the time. It’s now in the backseat of my car.

Here are some random people on the step & repeat. I have no idea who they are, but they’re pretty cute.

John and Mondo trade jackets, pose with our new friends.

Mondo. He’s wicked frickin’ cool. Look at his outfit.
