A black tie affair with nothing to wear!
That's nearly how I felt this past weekend when I ventured to the good ol' hometown of NYC for a wedding so fancy and fabulous, it repeated the aisle two step of "that Jonas brother" who got married at the very same venue mere moments (ok, years) earlier. If it's good enough for a Jonas... it's good enough for elshane. 
So in my closet I peaked.... I rummaged... I ravaged... I sulked. I found tons and tons of {ain't fly enough for this fashionista} gorgipants gowns that just didn't hit the mark. I needed inspiration to recreate these closet woes. And then, shimmering like the popular gal she was, hanging so peacefully, was this long sleeve sequin Diane von Furstenberg snoozefest (turned bombshell) of a gown. Yes! The identical gown that was seen on Giuliana Rancic on Fashion Police's post-Oscar one-hour special, of course! OK, fine. If it's good enough for a Rancic...it's good enough for elshane.
With a few safety pins {Angelina leg alert!} and a strategic loose wrap tie situation, this conservative wrap gown went Rihanna Grammy edition in five minutes flat. Added some Lioness details like jewels, a fony {faux-pony}, and it.all.happened. Would you look at that?
Lesson learned: Something hanging in your closet can be salvaged with an inspiration. With the lingering image of Princess Ri-Ri Rihanna in my head from that unforgettable Grammys night, her "Scarface" Michelle Pfeiffer rendition of music royalty transpired into a Jonas Brothers PG rated hit.
Halloween in March? You can do it, too.
