Unrealistic Style Guide: Chapter 1

My dear cousin Marcella just made her debut as the lead in her high school play, which means, without a doubt, she will find success on Broadway soon. You know what that means! It's time for the Daddy Likey Style Guide: How to Dress Like a Broadway Star (in clothes that a real broadway star probably couldn't afford).

Start with an impossibly glamorous fur coat (shush now, it's faux!):

Rebecca Taylor, $570, shopbop.com

Pair with the cutest high-waisted pencil skirt ever made:

Parameter, $215, girlshop.com

Tuck in an embellished corset camisole ("Isn't that too much with the coat and the skirt? Shouldn't I keep the camisole simple?" you say? Helllooo you're on broadway! You're supposed to be dramatic!):Nannette Lepore, $300 (jesus christ that's expensive for a camisole!), nordstrom.com

Add black tights and some hot red heels:

Fornarina, $144.40, Asos.com

Top off the look with some big sunglasses, so everyone knows you're a famous broadway star, duh.

Giorgio Armani, $265, saks.com

Congratulations Marci!

Oh sweet Jesus, the shoes! The shoes! I am such a shoe whore.

Now, if I can just concentrate on writing this damn bio, so I can afford more shoes...
