What To Wear: New Year’s Eve 2018

Talulah Slip Mini Dress$125 – 62.50

Every year, New Year’s Eve is the holiday that I look forward to the least! Except… for this year because I’m ditching the Seattle cold and bar scene for a relaxing New Year’s vacay poolside in Palm Springs. This is the first time that I’m ever traveling for this holiday, but very much looking forward to it. If there was any downside at all, it was figuring out how to pack from San Francisco for two very extreme climates. Happy to share the news that we survived that ordeal.

New Year’s Eve can be a hit or miss. Since everything is planned so last minute, you have a 50% chance of having your plans fall completely flat or having them be completely fun and spontaneous. Those are the stories that I love hearing about! Here is to a surprising midnight event for y’all, a fantastic outfit to kick things off in, and a very happy new year. Here are some of my very favorite last minute picks!

How to Ring in 2017 or More Importantly… What You’ll Wear

Rachel Zoe satin-trimmed corded lace jumpsuit$495 $347

We always write this post a little bit late don’t we? Last year, I wrote it the day after Christmas and today I’m starting it at the end of Christmas Day. The reason why is usually because we don’t have time or we put off doing it, but my rationale is that New Years plans always happen last minute! Unless you’ve planned a trip around it or have some kind of occasion, most people have no idea what they’re doing for New Year’s Eve – myself included. Every. Single. Year. Last year, I ended up going out on Capitol Hill with my cousins and having a pretty entertaining night, but this year? We’re still not sure. I brought my trusty long-sleeved Aritiza dress back home with me though for this specific outing. You know… just in case! I’m sharing with you all some of my favorite looks to end the year, but it’s likely you may not be able to purchase these and get them delivered on time so look to these as inspiration instead!

Hollis Wong-Wear x Nordstrom

A.L.C. lace crop top | ASTR textured skirt | SJP leather pumps | Shiraleah embellished wool clutch

Our favorite Seattle singer Hollis Wong-Wear was recently styled for a shoot with Nordstrom wearing some of the most amazing pieces. There was no way we couldn’t share this. These looks were shot for New Year’s Eve so we’re a little late to the game, but we don’t see any problem with wearing these outfits outside of the holiday either.

What I Wore to Ring in 2015

[Sunday Best Sexton Dress]

I got a little too excited about New Year’s Eve tonight and what I’d be wearing that I pulled on my outffit right out of the shower. I still have a few errands to run, but I’m thinking about just pulling a sweater over this so that I can continue wearing it. Does that sound like an acceptable idea? I recently purchased this dress along with many other pieces from the Aritzia sale and instantly knew that it was going to be New Year’s Eve worthy. While it’s a little bit of a sexy dress, there are plenty of opportunities to dress it down. It also flares out at the bottom so it doesn’t cling to your body like it looks like it would in this photo above. I’ve also been itching to own a little velvet in my collection recently, but could never opt for anything that was all velvet so the dainty velvet floral on this is just perfect.

I’m pairing this with a minimalistic gold bar necklace, my Catbird ring and my new stack ring from Madewell along with my newest Vince Camuto black heels. More pictures later, we promise!

What We’d Wear To Ring In The New Year 2012

With the holiday parties coming in before New Year’s Eve, we often times forget about what we’re going to wear to the big event. Well, we either forget or it turns out to be a last minute buy and for an event this big, it deserves our attention doesn’t it. Who am I kidding? Even this post is a little bit late because you’re going to be a little bit scrapped for time purchasing a dress now – but hey – I’m here for you. And I’m a hypocrite because I bought my New Year’s Eve dress last Sunday.

I’m sorry.

Let’s get started – we can’t waste anymore time.

What New Year’s Eve Party Are You Going To?

pic cred: The Daily What

Oh…this one!

Just kidding, I don’t actually have my New Year’s Eve plans figured out yet. This fake New Year’s Eve flier was passed around the interwebz today and as funny as it is reading it, we all know that there’s an 80% chance of these scenarios happening.

I’ve got a love/hate relationship with the holiday. In the past couple of years, my celebration has been pretty tame. Last year, I was sick. Two years ago, Samantha and I played third and fourth wheel to our best friend and previous boyfriend’s evening. There was some dinner at a nice restaurant involved and a showing of a British or Australian zombie movie on TV with a title that could have been confused with a porno.

This year, I’m going into it with no expectations or at least lowered expectations. New Year’s Eve is a classy holiday, but yet I always find that it is ruined by schmammeredness and dresses that are not fit for the evening or – dresses that just don’t fit (right). My plans may be up in the air right now, but I’ll do you a solid and make you proud.

Happy New Year everyone!

Ring In The New Year With These Dresses

Anytime alcohol is combined with evening wear, there is a chance of something going wrong. Your biggest concern should not be what you will be wearing the night of New Year’s Eve, but it should be to make sure that the dress is intact and shines throughout the entire night. We all know my personal stance on how alcohol can ruin a decent dress by making you look like a mess so I hope all of you will keep that in mind when you go out this holiday. And remember, the best accessory to wear with your dress is your confidence. A classy lady who knows how to have a good time without being too schwasted is a girl that will turn heads.

I know some people really enjoy movies like these, but they are such disorganized messes that not even an all-star cast can save the actual film.
