New Year's Eve: What Are You Gonna Wear?

Happy Thursday!!!

As Shopbop said, "It's {almost} PARTY TIME!" ;)
It feels weird that yet another year has passed and that we are now just a couple of days away from welcoming 2012. :O

Are you gonna wear something new for New Year's Eve?

Here are some of the Editor's Party Picks from Shopbop:

Nicholas Rebecca Sequined Dress, Parker Sunburst One Sleeve Dress, Parker Cluster Beaded V-Neck Dress, and Odylyne Vireo Tunic Dress

I love the third one!

Parker Open Back Dress, Alice + Olivia Eleanor Metallic Striped Dress, ONE by Stretta Siwa Dress, and Dolan Drop Waist Dress

I want #4!

Which of these eight dresses did you like the most?

While it's nice to wear something new for New Year's Eve, I try to keep in mind that times are tough, and we gotta save when we can, right? ;)

With that thought in mind, I decided that I will look through my closet to find some of my older (and possibly never used) clothes to wear for New Year's. I also made two looks from to help me come up with two outfits: one for New Year's Eve and another for New Year's Day.

New Year's Eve:

My Mom believes in wearing green for New Year's. 
Why? Because money is green, haha!

I know I have a green dress somewhere in my closet.
I have stud earrings, a gold statement necklace, and a gold bracelet.
And I can borrow my Mom's black wedge pumps.

New Year's Day:

Like everyone else, I also like to wear shiny and sparkly stuff for New Year's.
And I love the combination of gold and black!

I have skinny black pants and a sparkly gold top I got way back when I was in high school.
I can borrow my Mom's black blazer with gold buttons.
And I'll finish the look with black pumps, gold earrings, and gold bracelets.

Which of these two outfits are you more likely to wear?
What are you wearing for New Year's?

  1. Oh Mimi---first row-Beige section number 2. If i could wear that outfit i would be a very happy gal. Out of the other two i would wear the black more than the green but i like both. This new years i am wearing a hospital gown (hopefully) waiting for this baby to come out :) Next year i will be wearing one of these dresses (i hope) Love this post.

  2. Keira-- you would look fantastic in that dress! :) i am so excited to meet your baby girl! wouldn't it be so cool if you give birth right at 12am on january 1st?! ;)

  18. Nothing gets me as much as the dress by Parker. It's shiny and fun without being loud or obnoxious. It's a great pick for the night.

  19. Love what your mom says about the color green on NYE! We are sure you will look fabulous tomorrow night!

  26. Love those Shopbop dresses especially the parker cluster beaded v-neck dress and the parker open back dress!

    I totally agree with you though on the whole saving thing. I am loving both of the outfits you created. The green dress and the sparkly top scream New Year! <3
