Here Comes the Jackpot Question in Advance...

What are you WEARING New Year's Eve?



So New Year's Eve is upon us. This is typically a holiday I don't get very pumped about; it's just not one of my favorites. That can be a good thing, however, because low expectations often lead to a surprisingly good time! I have a really fun evening planned, so I suppose I am more excited than usual this year.

Naturally, the aspect of the holiday I most enjoy is getting all gussied up. This year, I vowed not to buy anything new. I always deem it necessary to purchase new items for special occasions. It's always fun to debut something for the first time, but I knew I could find something that would work in my closet. It would be a fun challenge if nothing else.

After playing around with some options, I still haven't made my final decision. I've narrowed it down to four possibilities:

1. A bright red vintage dress that makes me feel like Jessica Rabbit at a disco. It's an item from my Etsy shop that never sold. For some reason I didn't recognize till now how cool it is!

2. A golden-colored velvet cocktail dress that I've only worn once.

3. A black sequin shirt and black sequin mini that together sort of resemble a dress.

4. A fancy top with liquid leggings. This is my most practical option. With single-digit temperatures forecasted for the night, a slinky party dress sounds painful.

What are you going to wear?

Golden cocktail dress! I'm wearing a vintage high waisted velvet skirt with a puffy sleeve teal and black checkered top. With tights, of course. No way I'm going tightless on a freezing cold night like this! :)

Can't go wrong with sequins or Rufus Wainright.

I'm having an unconventional New Year's Eve on the road roughing it... my distressed, painted up jeans, suede boots and a black and white gingham button up shirt untucked. Yeehaw! Hopefully I'll fashion it up tomorrow...
