Christmas time... my favourite time of the year. Also, my favourite time to dress up! My original plan of the gold Ruche dress with green shoes was a complete fail. It was one of those times where online vs. real life just didn't look the same. The shoes, however, I love. It took a few weeks, but I found the perfect dress to compliment them. It's not overly fancy, and can be easily dressed up or down, which I like, because I'll get to wear it again and again.
After finding a great Christmas dress that's versatile, I was motivated to do the same for New Years Eve. My original intent was a gold dress (again, after that last fail), with some sparkle. I admitted that it would be worn once and sit in my closet collecting dust. I was hoping to find something with a Charleston vibe to it. Venture out of my 40-60's bubble, and back in time for inspiration. And I found it at Modcloth.
I ordered the dress and the shoes (which were out of stock at Modcloth, but I found at LuLu's!). Once I receive them and decide if they're keepers, I'll start looking for accessories.
We don't have New Years plans as of yet, but I like to be prepared just in case. If we decide to stay in and have a quiet night, this is an outfit I'll definitely have the opportunity to wear another time.
