Since my 21st birthday blowout fell a week before all hallows eve, I felt I should get everyone in the spirit and encourage all of my partygoers to wear costumes. It was a madhouse, so it seemed appropriate.
For my outﬁt, I decided to go with a ringmaster theme and take the reigns, or riding crop in this case, into my own hands. Of course, this was mainly an excuse to indulge in a custom tailored tailcoat I’d dreamt of and searched for since I was a wee shopper.
Ever since I saw my British stepdad wear his to a wedding when I was eleven, I knew I needed to have my own one day, but the task of ﬁnding a man’s tailcoat to ﬁt a 5’2 narrow, female frame proved impossible for me. Cue local L.A. suit designer Jonathan Behr to the rescue! With his patient ear and tailoring expertise, I was able to ﬁnally bring my vision to fruition for the big night. I couldn’t have been happier with the result!
