toasting at midnight

2012 is just about over… and I can’t pretend I’m sad about it.  To say it wasn’t my best year on record would be a minor massive understatement.  That said, I am really looking forward to bidding this year adieu.  Doing so will, of course, require a festive frock.  Last year I provided the alternative to a sequin stunner, but who am I kidding?  I love shiny things.  (I also love miniature horses and champagne cocktails).  Give me a reason to add glitter and I’ll gladly take you up on it.  New Year’s Eve is the perfect occasion to shine, so dust off those paillettes and party hats, the countdown to midnight has begun.

Friday Frocks: The Sparkle Dress

By |December 29th, 2011|Friday Frocks, Why Did You Wear That?|

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been salivating over the opportunity to channel your inner chandelier this New Year’s Eve.  If you’re not like me, well, then we covered you last week with the “anti-sparkle dress.”   New Year’s Eve is your time to shine.  Both literally and figuratively.  I think there are two completely appropriate times (and a free hall passes) to wear as much glimmery, shimmery, I’m a disco ball garb as you damn well please.  One is your birthday and the other is obviously New Year’s Eve.  In honor of one of the most overhyped holidays, here are twelve beautiful blinged out dresses to strut your stuff in that won’t leave you looking like a Las Vegas showgirl.
