If you’re anything like me, you wait until the last absolute second to make any plans for New Years Eve. Not to mention waiting until the day before to pick out an outfit. I’m plagued with the “last minute” hassles all the time, and really should know better. Maybe next year!
One of my favorite websites to get special occasion dresses from, and lets be serious, entire outfits is Modcloth. They have a wide variety that fits any style, shape, and size. If you’re stuck in a complete rut they even have stylists that you can talk to to help complete your look. Which is great for someone as indecisive as me.
This is a little outfit I put together using only items from Modcloth. I’m not a girl that likes too much color, and I like my statement pieces to be in black or silver. I also like the idea of being able to wear everything separately with other pieces of my wardrobe.
Dress: Committee Celebration Dress
Booties: Lisbon There Bootie
Purse: Twist of Licorice
Blazer: Front and Convention Center Blazer
Tights: Know a Trick or Two Tights
Scarf: Head Over Heels Scarf
Belt: Sash Samba Belt

While I know the dress comes with a teal/blue belt, I really like the idea of this sash belt with the dress. I love mismatching belts that come with pieces of clothing for other belts I have or find. Especially when I can make it match with some of my jewelry pieces I already have.
I hope everyone is gearing up for a fantastic New Year! I can’t believe it’s going to be 2014.. Where did my early 20’s go?
At this very moment I’m probably on my way to Kh’s company’s Christmas bash. The power of scheduling posts ahead of time, hooray!
I didn’t want to give the secret out before the big event, but here’s what I’m going to be (or currently) wearing this evening. Minus the skull head. I put that in there for uber goth affect.
shoes : Mix No. 6 Wedge Pumps (mine are matte black)
dress : Bettie Page The Evening Unfolds Dress
pashmina : black pashmina similiar to this
clutch : cut out clutch
:: outfit on polyvore ::
The only thing not pictured is the under armor of spanx I have on. I figured I’d save you that gory detail.
The one thing I’m most proud of? That clutch. Kh went on a crazy find-everything-we-need-for-the-party shopping spree, and my only instructions were to find me a matte black clutch. She came back with that! Gosh, I love my damn girlfriend.
Maybe if I feel brave I’ll post outfit photos after the event.
In this installment of materialistic shit I want, I’m actually going to be getting one of these dresses, if I haven’t ordered it already. Every year around Christmas Kh’s company has a Christmas dinner/party that usually entails getting all spiffed up for. The first year I went happened to be last year and she totally psyched me out over it. This year I know what to expect a bit more, so it’s making finding a dress a bit easier.
I actually don’t like parties, but I do love having an excuse to buy a nice dress. Especially an expensive one (ha haaa).

Pinup Girl Clothing is probably one of my all time favorite sites to buy fancy schmancy dresses at. They have a wide variety of styles, and an even wider variety of dresses that are open in the hip region. Can you guess what my top 3 dresses are?
