First post of 2013! I hope that you all had a fabulous night.
I’m ready for another stylish year, are you?! I wanted a NYE glam look and I am so happy that I found this dress because it’s exactly what I wanted.
Dress: Express/ Shoes: ShoeDazzle
I took these photos in my sister’s condo because it was way too cold to do them outside last night. It’s nice to have a change of scenery too. I fell in love with this dress when I saw it at Express. It was the last one and in my size so of course I knew that it was meant for me. I actually bought this the day before New Years Eve so I really lucked out. I have been wanting to wear a gown of some sort for awhile now and even though this dress isn’t a full gown, it still did the trick. I love the fit up top and how flowy the dress is in the back. I kind of felt like I was getting married or something lol This might be the closest I get to a wedding dress for quite some time 🙂
For my makeup I went with nude lips and more of a dramatic eye. I have been mixing MAC Creme Cup with MAC Hot Gossip lately and I really like the mix. I kept my accessories really simple. I decided on hanging earrings instead of a necklace so that I could keep my neckline open and not take away from the cut of the dress. I really love the rhinestone heels on these shoes but since the dress is so long in the back they didn’t really show.
All I can say is that for me, this was the perfect outfit to bring in the new year! I had so much fun last night and I am just so excited for 2013. I somehow managed to get through this crazy holiday season and now I am really looking forward to spring! I recently booked a trip to LA and I will be leaving in 2 weeks. I need some new inspiration and a mini getaway. I will definitely be blogging during my stay 🙂
