I know Christmas is in just a few days, but us fashionistas are always one step ahead planning lavish looks for all our future festivities! And boy do I have you covered! Our style columnist at Cincy Chic just wrote this great story about how to select the right dress for your body type. Then, my friend Ashley at Sparkle Sense wrote this great NYE Glam Guide guest blog for me with all the latest fashion trends for this year’s festivities.
But I figured, hey, this is a blog and I need to share what *I* plan to be wearing when the ball drops this New Year’s Eve! As I mentioned in a previous blog, Thanksgiving (and a week full of its calorie-packed leftovers) wasn’t good to my waistline, so I didn’t want to wear anything too form fitting. Taking our style columnist’s advice on choosing a dress for my body type, I picked out this FABULOUS baby doll dress with cut-outs at the neckline (loving cut-outs right now!). And since NYE is all about sparkle and celebration, nothing says that more to me than silvery, sparkly baubles and bling!
I put the below look together here on Polyvore so you can see all the details of each piece. I’m really proud of myself for finding some really great deals on the look, too. Like, for example, the shoes are by my new favorite brand at Famous Footwear called “The Touch of Nina” and they’re a classic black peeptoe (style: Fendala; price: $29.99) with just enough sparkle to make them appropriate for a NYE party and also for the office. I got the dress for only $90 — I figured since it’s a LBD I’ll be able to wear it a million times more. Of course, a bright red lip for that smooch at midnight! And all the accessories you can get at places that have great costume jewelry and bags like Charming Charlies, Kohl’s, or Forever 21. So, really, this whole look could come in under $200! What a great way to ring in the new year!
