Welcome to Miss Marie Styles - a blog dedicated to getting fabulously dressed everyday.

I wore this outfit to a benefit for the Morbid Anatomy Library in Brooklyn. The invite suggested attendees wear something "obscure" and there is nothing I love more than to conjure the perfect outfit for a party.

I had been dying for some feather trim in my life after seeing this incredible Angel Jackson bag at Brooklyn Fox's new shop in Williamsburg.

I am fortunate to work in the fashion district and am surrounded by fabric, trim and button shops. I purchased the rust and mauve colored trim (which came in dozens of sizes and color combinations) and hand stitched it to the collar of a sheer boxy dress. Evening events allow for a little more risk and so I wore a black bra and high-waisted briefs underneath.

Tiny tip - remember: a dress with high impact details should be very minimally accessorized. You want nothing to distract from the main event ;)
