Party Outfit Inspiration: purple party frock

I looooooooooooove this purple Egyptian farasha frock. I'd want to wear it for my great non-muslim friend Tracey's going away party (hey Ange, she moving to an Australia near you!:D).

Here is my take. Gold sandals from le Chateau (I can't buy Jimmy Choo). Cute bronze lipgloss and natural brown eyeshadows (there will be men there besides my milk brother---hey, this is a question for the other converts---do any of you have a milk brother or am I like the only one?). Gold cuff bracelets also from le chateau worn over the sleeves of this abaya from http://www.al-ikhlas.com/items/abaya/a7601-8c-detail.htm for $56.00 USD. And a big splurge that I don't think I'll ever do (I can make my own) but... purple frilled scarf from http://www.forzieri.com/usa/product_view.asp?l=usa&c=usa&pf_id=bs04017-002&id_valore1=&id_valore2=&id_valore3=&id_valore4=183&id_valore5=&dept_id=3 for $87.00 USD.

Habibti: LOL I have low gold wedges in my drawer so I can resist the stilletos. But flat gold sandal slide are my weakness every summer:D. They just don't look as dressy in a set somehow but they look just as dressy when on.

Majda: I can't find it now, but it was a purple ebay caftan that'd work for the look. It might have just ended, the bidding for it. Keep a look out. They often have crazy cool caftans that sell for $21.00....

Ange: Yeah, the going away party is for our girl Tracey (who comforted me at work when this racist woman wouldn't let me serve her) is moving to Australia.
