Ask Amanda ... Victory party

by Amanda Bedgood

It's that time of year. Not Halloween, not Thanksgiving (and don't even say Christmas, you over achievers). Election time. In Lafayette Parish a bevy of candidates are on the ballot come October 24 and with early voting underway this INDStyler is speculating on more than who will win — but, on what one might wear to celebrate the win.

Three different silhouettes to flatter any figure can work for the big shindig after the votes come in as well as a host of other victory-worthy celebrations.

The wine-hued lace little dress from Vanessa V. gets the downtown cool girl treatment with a pair of booties in lieu of traditional heels. Snag a clutch and a long sparkling necklace with a tassel with a contrasting gem stone and you're ready to celebrate.

For the demure dresser we love the day to night ease of this timeless dress from Brother's on the Boulevard. The black and white print adds to the middle-whittling cut perfect for accentuating a waist. Just add a colorful, simple heel and some red lips for a look that can go from the office to drinks.

If it's curves you need to flaunt (and still do it with class) we love these simple chic numbers from Maven Womenswear. In either wine or black, the midi length is sophisticated while the cut is vavavoom. A strand of long pearls, a glossy lip and soft hair finishes the look.
