Happy New Year! I’m still taking down Christmas decorations so I haven’t really made any new years resolutions yet but when I do, blogging with intention will be on the list! I thought I’d stop in to share my awesome New Year’s Eve find.
This New Year’s Eve, Walt and I joined our neighbors for a masquerade party. Our Christmas break was a little out of whack so New Year’s snuck up on me and I found myself on New Year’s Eve without a dress! I had a few black dress options that I’d previously worn to weddings but they were 8-10 years old and I was hoping for something different. So I ventured to my least favorite place during the holidays – the Mall.
I only had a few hours before we had to meet a friend for dinner so I was determined to find something at H&M. I was hoping for something with sequins, whether it was a top, skirt or dress. I tried on over 20 items. (I know because the limit was 7 and I had to swap out twice:))
The dress I loved was the only dress of it’s kind on a pant rack. It was a size too small but I loved the color and I was feeling desperate.
I texted this dressing room photo to a friend for reassurance and then off to the checkout where I had two people stop me and ask me where I found the dress. I’m so happy I picked it up when I did!
Shoes and Accessories: I considered DIYing some glitter pumps but then realized that would be too much sparkle and I didn’t have enough time so I went with black paten leather peep toe stilettos that I had on hand. No necklace or earrings just a simple knock off David Yurman cable bracelet.
