Look, sometimes an outfit is just begging to be put together. And hey, I won’t even lie. Today’s outfit is all about the dress because I’m 99% sure that one of the designers at Express is secretly a huge fan of X-Factor and Monet St. Croix. Could it be anymore of a fashionable translation of her current uniform?

Have you read Peter David’s X-Factor? No? Go read it. Right now. It is wonderful as is my fabulous bitchy diva Monet who gets a pretty big role in the book.
Also known as: what Bria is wearing for race day. I’m headed off to the Preakness Stakes tomorrow. It’s the second jewel in the Triple Crown and is always a fun day at the horse race track. While the Kentucky Derby might get all the attention, the Preakness is also filled with plenty of fabulous hats and I wanted to bring my A-game this year. For style inspiration, I turned to one of my favourite rich and classy ladies: Monet St. Croix. She’s one of the few Marvel superheroes that I could feasibly see attending an event like this. Her X-Factor uniform served as a basis as did Monet herself. The black and red of the bespoke hat was my starting point because, well, FABULOUS HAT. From there, it was just a matter of debating between dresses and accessorizing.
Really, it’s all about the hat.
