new year's eve




Dress: Zara (similar style here); Blazer: Zara (similar style here); Shoes: Unknown brand via Buffalo Exchange; Purse: Zara (similar style here); Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: Lauren Elan "Olivia" necklace c/o, assorted gifted bangles, Michael Kors watch

While I don't think I'll be wearing this particular outfit for New Year's Eve, I like the idea of wearing a floor length dress with peek-a-boo slits. It's unexpected but fittingly appropriate for an evening of champagne and friends. Do you guys know what you'll be wearing this weekend for the countdown?

And speaking of New Year's Eve, check back later this morning -- I have a special video to share with all of you and it may or may not involve Ms. Rachel Zoe herself. I know. I know. I DIE.

  6. Although I am a big fan of gold, this year I will be sporting a silver sequined mini with killer black booties & accessories. I actually just did a post on my dress from last NYE (http://shoeschampagne.blogspot.com), check it out!

    Also, this is a great outfit- love the dress & necklace.

  8. Nothing is more ladylike-sexy than thigh-high slits. Love the mix of the blazer and the evening gown.
