In just a few days 2015 will be behind us. All the possibilities of 2016 await us. Before 2016 gets here there is one last event of this year and that's New Year's Eve. Are you attending a major bash, going to see the ball drop, or going to a swanky restaurant to cheer in the year with fabulous strangers? What will you wear to bring in the New Year? Whatever your plans, I have you covered with for fabulous clothing and accessories! Since I am the Queen of turning a modest fashion budget into a million dollar look, I will show you high-end luxury pieces and fabulous alternative looks. Sit back and enjoy...
These gun metal snake skin stamped peep-toe booties will steal the show. They are chic and oh so stylish. At Barney's they retail for a $950. Check out the inspired pocket-friendly version below.
LWD- Little White Dress
For New Year's Eve a winter white dress is sophisticated and everything but boring. It is also a way to stand out from the sea of black dresses that will most likely be in the room. The above dress is beyond beautiful, it's edgy and stylish, but who would expect anything less from Balmain. The texture of the white-on-white tiger stripes are exquisite. The dress retails for $1,980 at Bergdorf Goodman. Check out the great alternative, a body con dress with ruffle lace details. It retails for a tenth of the price and is available at TopShop for $90.
The first thing people notice when you enter a room is your outerwear. Wear a statement coat and your outerwear will be as fashionable as your clothing underneath. This shawl collar white cashmere coat feels supreme against your skin. The original price tag was $1,295 and now is on sale at Neiman Marcus for $971. Zara offers a similar type of statement coat with a draped neck for a fraction of the cost (pictured below) for $129.
Every gal needs a chic clutch to hold her essentials, you know; press powder, lipstick, cell phone and breath mints ; ) The above Python Clutch is a nice accessory for New Year's Eve and can do double duty year round, dressing up even the most casual day look, or adding charm to your evening ensemble. The price tag on the VBH clutch is $1,600. I have found a clutch you can wear to help pull your look together from Guess, right now on sale for a limited time offer for only $45.50
Have fun on New Year's Eve. Be safe. Don't drink and drive. Don't text and drive. Look fabulous and celebrate in style!!!
