Living in Los Angeles has totally opened my eyes to what a real "party" is. Before, my definition of a party would have been something extremely similar to the scene in Dazed and Confused where they have a beer bust down at the moon tower. You only wore heels to your first party, because after that, you learned they sink in the dirt and grass of whatever field you're in. There might have been something in there involving a house that smells like gross, college boy, and a beer pong game lacking a water cup, even though the ball touches a ground that has had more boot-soles on it than a Justin factory. But that, my friends, is not a "party." A party usually involves lots of cool people, some with cool jobs, and some with just cool lives. They all dress differently, but all great. People actually talk. Whatever they talk about is up to them, but it's possible to talk. A party is usually at an interesting venue, with some sort of DJ. There are no kegs or Dixie cups. That being said, dressing for a party can involve a certain amount of pressure to look good. Here are some inspirational photos, taken from various NY Fashion Week parties, to give anyone ideas about what to wear to their next party.
