Party Time!

We’ve got some fun but low key plans for this New Year’s eve and I will be getting dressed up and saying GOODBYE to the suckiness that is otherwise known as 2009. (2009 has been a terrible year for me and I am so ready for it to be over.)

I’ve gotten a few questions from readers that have a hard time figuring out what to wear for their New Year’s eve parties or what accessories to pair with dresses so I’ve put together a few looks with my favorite dresses. I’ve included the accessories I’d pair it with and the makeup to pull the look together!

Look #1:

Alice + Olivia

This dress is already really pretty on its own but I think the lace tights will add a fun element. The black pumps won’t take away from the tights but adding a few pretty accessories will be perfect for a little bit of bling and shine. I kept the makeup pretty simple but with lots of touches of bronze and golds. I’m a huge fan of bright nail polish colors and I think the pink is perfect for this little dress!



Don’t you love the ruffles on this dress? I think adding the headband is perfect for a party and you don’t need too many other accessories but a couple of big rings. For the makeup, I would really play up the eyes with this outfit. A simple smokey eye with lots of eye liner and of course pretty false lashes! Light pink lips and bright red nails completes the look.

    I love the two party looks! I bought a dress that was meant for a big party, but I'm visiting a friend/neighbor instead, so I will need to tone it down a bit maybe "/ we shall see!

    Enjoy your new years and may 2010 be all you expect it to be!

    Hey darling– I think 2010 will be a great year for all of us! These looks are so fantastic. I am not sure I'll be doing anything fancy for NYE, but I think I might have to do an outfit post just because! One of my New Year's resolutions is to do more outfit pictures 🙂 Hope you have a great week! xx

    Those silver pumps are uber fun and that YSL gloss looks most delish. Hope you had a stellar holiday!

    Yes, 2009 was pretty sucky…. I wholly agree. 😛 I'm looking forward to 2010 and plenty of fun things planned & unplanned.

    Maybe if you're up for it, I could meet you in Seattle sometime, I'm looking forward to getting there a few times I hope. (Moving to Spokane, kinda close.) I mean, I'd love to see what you could put together for photos with shoes & cars. Could be fun. 😉

    Great outfit advice! That Alice + Olivia dress and how you styled it, are just perfection.
