Our New Year's Eve was spent in the company of 4 other couples - we ate at a Korean BBQ restaurant, then walked to our friends' condo for cheese, chocolate, fruit and other nibbly goodies (and of course, lots of wine and beer!). L and I staggered home around 3am. *stretch* I just crawled out of bed, haha!
I was a bit rushed last night getting ready last night, so my hair is not as sleek as I wanted, but here's my lovely new gown:
My friends' home was a no-shoe zone last New Year's Eve, so these are the shoes I would have worn if I'd been able to leave them on. However, since we would be doing so much walking (to town, to friends' place, home), I chose to go with a more practical boot:
This dress was $8.00 in a thrift store - it's new, not vintage, and I'm pretty sure it's never been worn. Forgive my slight bulginess; I am not a fan of Spanx or control undergarments. I was comfortable all night!
But I know you want to see the shoes! These were $30 and were one of the five pairs I purchased with gift money from my in-laws:
They are Poetic Licence (which, as we know, are the makers of the Best Shoes Ever) and were over $200 regular price. Ah well, I'll find some other outfit to wear them with!
A close-up of the jewelry:
L got me these earrings for Christmas - I love them! That's my old Kenneth Cole ring. I "sized" it with a couple of bandaids, since it's from my heavy weight and is too big even for my thumbs.
I believe in making achievable resolutions. My New Year's Resolution this year is to read an hour a day. I love books and I have tons that I haven't read. I really want to make time in my day to read more and get through some of them - I spend way too much time staring at the idiot box (both computer and TV).
Of course, my shopping challenge is now over! I'll be doing a write-up about what I liked, didn't like, and what part(s) of it I might be carrying over for good into my shopping habits.
