Press Play and Party {St. Vincent . Cruel}

I am a music lover.  Certain songs prompt me to plan a party based on the mood the music gives me.  This party inspiration board is based on St. Vincent’s song ‘Cruel’.

When I hear the song, I think of Disney princesses.  But in a grown up sort of way.  Why should little girls get all the fun? Wouldn’t it be cool to throw your friends a princess party? 
This party would be a mix of fancy and totally casual.  Of course the color pink would be the driving force throughout the party but other colors would be more than welcome.  Especially royal blue.  Oh NO you didn’t!

How decadent do these perfume bottles look when styled as cake?  My friends would not hate going home with one of these as a party favor.

A glittery, mirrored garland would look perfect over a food table and some colorful wall art that a reminiscent of a spinning wheel would help bring the color {Sleeping Beauty}.

But I am all about comfort.  So the dress code would be a mix of fabulous and chic with absolute comfort.  Absolutely no heels allowed!  Just about anything by Wildfox Couture or Haute Hippie would work.  And of course, can dress your head like nobody’s business.

I am hoping to make this a recurring post category.  What songs make you want to party?

    love it, love it, love it!!! Such simple things, but what a great twist! And yeah… just because we’re grown-ups doesn’t mean we have to let the KIDS have all the FUN!
