Happy New Years Eve!

Oh yes, it has come down to one of the staple days in the calender when you get to show off. I thought I'd share with you what I would be wearing if I had the green. I can picture myself strolling through the streets of London with the fireworks lighting the way. Fantasies aren't meant to be believable. Hence the fantasy part.

New Years Eve

And now my explanation -
This Sass & Bide dress just jumped out at me. It's so OTT: ruffles, bows, sequins... which is perfect for this kind of occasion. The Bustier is figure-hugging and the full skirt balances out proportions. I just think it's fantastic. But then again, I'm a sucker for a good LBD. The Fur Coat is vintage from Rokit, my favourite online vintage store. It just looks so massive and comfortable that it glams up any outfit; plus it keeps you snug as a bug. The python clutch is Anya Hindmarch, it's sexy and works well with the coat and the dress. Louboutin Sandals are standard: Not too high, a bit of toe cleavage and that gold embellishment which instantly draws attention. I cannot think of any other shoes that would do the job. The nail polish is a dark red, a colour I've yearned for since stealing my mother's 'rouge noir' Chanel lacquer. It's classy, subtle and looks so expensive! Makeup-wise I was thinking a light rose blush (that Laura Mercier powder crushes like silk) on a glowing pale face with only thick lashes to contrast (the YSL mascara has a chunky brush with a creamy formula, perfect!). And now I'm ready to hit the streets!
Ok, so it's a little out of my price range, but my outfit still looks awesome: Black French Connection velvet pin-tuck dress, my £9 mkone peep-toe snakeskin heels (they were half price. And I subsided the pain by reshaping them with foam and double-sided. I'll have to put up a picture...) and my tux jacket. There was no point in buying anything special; after all I'm just going to a school-scale party in bath. Next year I'll fill out my fantasy. Bring it on London.
Anyway I hope you all have great New Year's bashes. Any Resolutions?
