Here's my inspiration and progress:
Thanks to Uncle Sam and genetics I have an athletic build, so the best silhouette for my body type and the formality of this event is a classic wiggle dress w/ pearls. Oh and because of my youth, I'll use denim to avoid looking too old. To play on today's trend, I will wear the snake skin pumps.
I hope to have this completed by Monday evening. The show is on Friday, and my friend has requested I make him a suit coat. I'll update you later.
