LBD on NYE

LBD on NYE

I've been trying to nail down New Years Eve plans here in our new home in Orange County, California. With Los Angeles so close, the options seem nearly unlimited compared to small town Indiana where we came from. Either way, while I ruminate on where we'll be, I can at least plan what I'll be wearing.

New Years Eve seems to be a holiday where girls take what they are wearing very seriously, as if it's an adult prom where sequin dresses are ubiquitous. I've worn sequins before on NYE, but now I prefer materials and details that stand out. This faux leather dress from Zara is not only interesting with a side slit, but has a nice amount of sex appeal without being over the top sexy the way many NYE cut-out dresses can go.

The lace up shoes and Moshcino also add special details that add interest to what is otherwise a little black dress. The Rolex watch, available on invaluable.com contrasts nicely with the heavy gold hardware on the bag, and I've really been feeling a vintage watch moment lately. For several years, the trend in women's watches was "boyfriend" this or oversized that, and it seems like there has been a return to simple, leather watches for women. There are many to choose from on invaluable.com, which is a luxury auction site, and can be a huge time saver if you're trying to scour Ebay for that perfect vintage designer item.

The coat, and closed toed shoes are a nod to the midwest, the east, or anywhere with sub freezing temperatures where coats, tights, and closed toed shoes are always a good idea.

Have a very merry holiday and a happy new year.

  2. That seems like a pretty nice outfit. But I guess it would be too much to be going for an assignment help uk review! Anyways, I really like your sense of dressing, amazing really!
