One of the things I most look forward to this time of year is all of the festive events and gatherings around the city that keep everyone in a warm and positive mood as the temperatures drop and snow begins to fall. There are some really great events but my absolute favourite are the Refinery parties held at the Art Gallery of Alberta a few times a year. The Dial R For Refinery event is being held this October 28th and has a dark film noir theme to fit in with end of the month Halloween festivities! It’s a night of glamour and murder mystery fun.
Themed events are some of my most favourite to dress up for and I spent a day shopping at Manulife Place right in the heart of downtown Edmonton to find the perfect outfit for this Exclusively Edmonton event. The pieces need to fit the fashion era of 1930s-40s with lots of black and white and a mix of feminine fabrics with some bold masculine shapes. Lace and fishnet and pinstriped fabrics are amazing. Fur trims and trench coats also fit the theme and don’t forget a pop of bright red lipstick!
First I stopped in at Holt Renfrew, an Edmonton staple for luxury goods. They have some amazing fur shawls and thick wool capes that would be great to finish off a look for this party. There I found a white tuxedo blouse from Rag and Bone. It has a nice tuxedo inlay with neck tie bow detailing. I also found a cute black Chloe evening bag that I added to my outfit.
Next I stopped in at Blu’s. They have recently redone the store and I was pleasantly surprised by the selection they offer and range of pieces. They have many ready to wear pieces as well as some more daring, and tons of accessories such as shoes and bags along with many sparkly necklaces and bracelets. Something that shines looks great for the look you need for Dial R For Refinery. There I picked out a Marie Saint Pierre charcoal knee length skirt with front diagonal pin striping and a heavy knee length vest with tie front closure from Iris Setlakwe.
For some added accessories I went into Swish Vintage, a luxury vintage store. This store absolutely amazed me with the pieces in stock. Tons of designer shoes and bags but the vintage pieces were such a great find for putting together this look! There is a wall full of hats from years gone by and in all different colours. I found a black one with crystal accents and front netting. Here I also found some beautiful pearl and crystal clip on earrings.
This is the complete look I chose for the party:
I love that I was able to find all of the elements for this look all at Manulife and absolutely adore the way the look came together!
This party is definitely the one to be at this Halloween, the Art Gallery never disappoints and they always have great food and music! So I’m excited to be able to give you a chance to win your own set of 2 tickets along with a $150 Manulife Place gift card to help you find the perfect outfit to wear there!
