Holiday Par-tay

Thursday, December 27, 2012 166 0

Coat and Dress: French Connection (both old). Gloves: H&M (new). Clutch: Balenciaga (similar). Shoes: Kate Spade. Earrings: Swarovski.

 

My girl Amy (from Leopard and Lillies) and I teamed up to showcase some outfit options for New Year’s Eve. Hers a little more casual, mine a little more dressy, but both flashing the NYE must-have sparkle. Β This is the outfit I wore to a Christmas Party last week, but I would definitely wear this again for New Year’s IF I had somewhere fun to be. Β This year, I’ll be ringing in the New Year on my couch with my Man, a pint of Haagen Dazs Pralines & Cream, and a (hopefully) good movie. Β What are your NYE plans?

 

Be sure to check out more pics of Amy’s gorgeous look at her blog Leopard and Lillies.

    You look beautiful in these pictures. I love that the dress shows off all the right curves without getting into skanky territory. I don’t think I have plans for new years (boring, I know) but if I did this dress would be at the top of my wish list!

    Jenny, I think that French Connection has some fabulous pieces…as a matter of fact, I am getting ready to shoot my New Year’s look too and it will also showcase a French Connection dress…they always know how to keep things elegant, classy and fun.
    I am loving your gloves…absolutely fabulous!!!
    I think that going out on NYE can be fun but sometimes the best plans are those spent at home, snuggled up and enjoying the peacefulness that is home πŸ™‚
