The origins of masquerade balls date back to the 15th century as a glam way to celebrate weddings and other stellar events of the medieval court. Not to be undone – my boo Felicia, who annually has the most amazing birthday parties, decided her 30th milestone would require imagination from old Europe. Her masquerade party was this past Saturday at the National Golf Club in Fort Washington, Maryland and I loved every bit of it! You know what else I enjoyed? Checking out how everyone coordinated their costumes with their mysterious face gear. I went nuts snapping away with my iphone! My camera wasn’t available, but I think my little buddy captured the moment:)
NOTABLES: Felicia’s cream BCBG one shoulder cocktail dress and fierce purple heels, Dee’s “Jeremy Scott Adidas” sneakers and colorblocked nails, Sheniaka’s fringed jacket and Nicole’s Michael Korrs tortoise Michael Kors watch paired with her burgandy Martin and Olsa dress. I went with a shimmering black and gold brocade dress (H&M) paired with a gold mask with roses (Target’s Halloween section:)

Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL! I've been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
