2013…Let’s Do This

December 31, 2012

Shoppalu bag, J.Crew skirt, Kimchi Blue bustier, cuff c/o Lia Sophia,
bracelets c/o INPINK, ring, green & onyx necklace c/o Brooklyn Designs, Loft 82 short necklaces

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! I’m off to a house party tonight, which is usually my moda operandi for most NYE. 
Since I’d look pretty ridiculous if I was dripping in go-to sequins and sparkle, I decided to keep the core of my look basic (bustier + wool skirt) and really focus on layering on the gold jewelry! Even for big events, I usually like to keep my hair and makeup pretty natural, so air-dried hair like it is here or loose curls will probably be how I style it for tonight. A berry lip and smudged liner and I’m good to toast in 2013 looking chic but not over-the-top for a casual party!

    Love the bustier top. This is a great house party look. This is actually my first NYE that I'm not going out in the city….instead spending it at my friend's apartment and having a small NYE bash. I'm def. looking forward to a more relaxing and fun environment then trying to fight through a crazy crowd to get to the bar, wait on line for a bathroom, and having to worry about traveling.

    I hope you have a HAPPY and SAFE New Years Eve!

    Oh pally, I am still waiting for the day that my hair will air dry and come out looking like yours 😉 Happy New Year, my beautiful friend – I can't wait to see what 2013 has in store for you!

    I have to echo Cee's comments. My hair does not look like that EVER air dried. In fact i'd either look like a poodle or a drowned rat…my hair has a mind of its own. I love this look. Classy, chic, understated but stunning and hugs you in all the right places.

    Happy 2013.
