What to Wear: Night of 100 Elvises

What to Wear: Night of 100 Elvises

When I heard about the “Night of 100 Elvises” – the annual fundraiser for Johns Hopkins Children’s Center that draws Elvis tribute artists from all over the country to Baltimore – the first thing that came to mind wardrobe-wise was a white jumpsuit.

Then reality struck, and I realized that it is December 2nd on the east coast and perhaps a white jumpsuit might not be the most practical of choices for an evening out. So, instead I opted for one of my favorite styles – rock n’ roll with a little glam. (Photo courtesy Google Images)

It was love at first site with this Joie blouse from Alice Jane {1407 Clarkview Rd Suite 500, Baltimore, MD 21209}. I love everything about it – the bow, the color, how it hangs. AND you can wear it out and to work. What more could a girl ask for? (Joie Blouse $298, Photo courtesy Alice Jane)

When it came time to pick bottoms, I knew I needed something a little edgy to counteract the shirt’s girly bow. I love skinny pants and I love velvet. So, when I saw this pair of Paige’s at Alice Jane, I knew I was heading in the right direction. (Paige High Rise Velvet Pants $249, Photo courtesy paige.com)

As far as shoes go, how Elvis are these Giuseppe’s?!? For once in my life, I was actually speechless when I stumbled upon them. They are currently on sale from $795 to $477 on netaporter.com. (Fun Fact: I tend to stock up on designer shoes twice a year – once around the holidays and once during summer sale season). (Photo courtesy netaporter.com)

Let’s face it, the shoes are flashy. So, as far as accessories are concerned, I recommend going simple, simple, simple. You can get these hoops by Escape from Paris for $49 at Boutique W {Green Spring Station, 2360 Joppa Road #1, Lutherville, MD 21903} (Photo courtesy Boutique W)

I’m not sure why, but in my head I correlate “The King” with leopard print. So, when I saw this J.Crew top coat, I knew it was the missing link to my Elvis-Inspired-Rock-Queen look. Not to mention, leopard is 100 percent a neutral – so you can wear it all winter. It’s selling out quickly, but you can reserve yours on jcrew.com and pick it up at their Harbor East location {120 International Drive, Baltimore, MD 21202} (Photo courtesy jcrew.com)

The best part of this look is that you can wear all of these items over and over all winter. If that’s not a reason to shop, I don’t know what is! Have fun getting groovy as you channel your inner Elvis! xx
