My NYE Sparkle

I couldn't help myself.  I had a perfectly festive black sequin skirt all laid out for NYE.  I just needed to find a perfectly festive top to pair with it.  Then I saw this Parker Sequin Dress at Thera M (one of my favorite local boutiques).


The look on my husband's face when I tried it on was all I needed to throw all responsibility out the window.  It was their last one, it fit like a glove, the ruched sleeves concealed my winter white arms, and I had to act fast (Lilly was about to hit meltdown mode). 

Poor sequin skirt.  She really is fabulous.  Maybe I'll wear her on a ladies night out or Valentines day.

Now, if only I could find a feather stole...

Because New Year's Eve is the night of all nights to go big.  And dramatic.

YES I love it! The shape of the hemline is so pretty, and I adore the dark sequins -- if this dress is any indication, your NYE will be fantastic.

This is awesome! I had to retire my sparkly jacket as I wore it way TOO much during the holidays. I purchased a purple taffeta mini for tomorrow night instead but need to find a way to add some sparkle!

On another note, this is my first time visiting your blog - love it!

I am obsessed. If it wasn't sold out on shopbop I would order it right and overnight it in time for tomorrow. Seriously what is better than a long sleeve mini? Gorgeous
