New Year's Fashion

The countdown has started! 2010, twenty ten or two thousand ten, or whatever you plan to call it will soon be here. What are you going to wear to ring in the new year? Even if you aren't going somewhere special, you can always make a special occasion out of a night at home. Here's what is on my New Year's fashion list:

This gorgeous blue color is so flattering on so many complexions. At least 3 people told me, "Your eyes look SO BLUE." I tried on this dress and it fit so well, too. I love the beading and detail on the neckline; it's just right. Not too over the top, but super elegant. You'll get a million compliments on this one.

So when I saw this dress on the hanger, I didn't think that it looked like something that would be on my must have list. After I tried it on, I knew that I had to have it. It's the perfect black dress that works with almost any formal or semi-formal occasion. Words can't describe how truly Audrey Hepburn-esque this dress is. Reminds me of something that I would wear to a Soiree with Lester Lanin music. I'm still looking through old boxes from college for my Lester Lanin beanie, but I won't digress. . .

Yesterday, someone was asking about tights with formal dresses. Personally, even if I am going to freeze, I hate to wear pantyhose or tights with dressy dresses like Sidra and Kaya. Even though I can't get over the "white after Labor Day thing" and bring myself to break all of the rules, I proudly wear my open toed shoes all year long. Shopafrolic is a great blog that I found after reading about it on the Lilly website. Jane and Liz from Shopafrolic both agree that bare legs and sandals are a "DO" all year, too!

Let me know in the comments what you think! Do you wear open toed shoes all year? What are you going to wear this New Year's Eve?

Wishing everyone the best for 2010 and a very happy New Year's Eve!


  1. I LOVE that black Kaya and rock open toes and white jeans all year long!

  2. Isn't Kaya the best!?! LOVE the orange Malana in your picture. Sooo pretty. xx Bethany

  3. The black Kaya is gorgeous! VERY Audrey Hepburn. (p.s. just found your blog through Muffy Martini, what a fun read!)

  4. Just found your blog via your twitter request. All Moms of twins are FABULOUS & you are no exception. Love the beading on the blue dress & of course you cannot go wrong with basic black. Toes have to close bc i live in a painfully cold climate, but I keep them open & legs bare until I can't stand it anymore. Then I move to another obsession:boots! Love your blog!! Happy New Year! *Cheers*

  5. @Pink Maple and @PoshMomma Thanks for reading!

    Audrey Hepburn is my ultimate fashion icon.

    I know what you mean about open toes to boots. . . there's no in between for me!

    Happy New Year to everyone!

  6. LOVE the black dress and the blue one is stunning, as well! I have to say that I don't wear open-toe shoes between Labor Day and Memorial Day...I'm very OCD about these things:)Have a fabulous New Year,
    Chin Chin!
