Yelling HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my lovely readers! Isn’t New Years one of the most festive times of the year?! Personally, it’s one of my favorite holidays. You get to dress up in a fabulous outfit, join the many festivities going on, and last but not least, you get a fresh start not to become a new you…but a better you, as you welcome in a new year.
Every year I throw a New Years Eve party with close friends and family, it’s always an awesome time. My favorite part is the decorating…I love getting creative to achieve that perfect party atmosphere. This year we decided to do a Mardi Gras theme. I absolutely loved the outcome of the party! Here’s a look:
The main table – can’t have a Mardi Gras party without beads and masks! This was probably one of my favorite decoration pieces for the party.
The second table decorated with a Happy New Year table set and colorful glasses ready for the champagne!
The bar area – Cheers to a new year!
The buffet – yum.
Can’t have a party without balloons! Another one of my favorite decorations; Balloons, and lots of them, just makes it feel that much more festive don’t you agree?
And now for my New Years Eve look. I shopped around for something, but there was nothing that caught my eye, and after trying on a few ill-fitting dresses, I threw in the towel. At the end of the day, I didn’t find anything I loved. Which is probably my fault since I waited so last-minute to shop for an outfit. So, I headed to my closet…hoping to pull something together last-minute. Fortunately, I found a little gem in the back of my closet – it was a romper I bought maybe years ago that I never got to wear. (See, I knew I was holding onto it for a reason…haha).
I decided to pair my Rampage romper I purchased a while back at Macy’s with my American Apparel thigh highs and black suede wedges. You have to love a pair of thigh highs, it adds a trendy touch while keeping those legs warm! The romper had a very low-cut v-neck and since it was a family affair, I covered up the ta-tas with a laced trimmed bandeau. I wore an orange lip (Covergirl’s blastflipstick in 840 stunner) to bring out the orange beading on the romper’s midsection. I styled my hair with a 1″ curling iron to create loose waves on my long blonde locks. And there you have it…I was feeling fabulous and fierce to bring in 2014!
Hope everyone enjoyed their Holidays! Hoping this year has nothing but awesome-ness in store for us all!!! xo.
