What Are Ya Doin'...New Year's Eve?

I know what I'm doin' - I'm going to a party tonight at Randall and Yvonne's! 

However, before that, I went to work. 

The last of the pre-planned December outfits! Who doesn't love a red dress?

  • Dress - Calvin Klein; last seen here in September in a Major way
  • Shoes - Steve Madden; featured here for Shoe Shine #6, and last worn here in February with yellow and fuzzy brown

"Cruising for kitty treats..."
I'm quite fond of this dress, but it's starting to show some wear; armpits, chestal region is getting a little pilly. I'm not ready to give it up yet, but I've got my eye on it.
I foolishly wore my shoes on a day when I was actually really busy! I took down the Christmas tree and all the decorations at Reception, trucked it all down to the basement storage area (me heaving around boxes), and also had to go to the other office today. I switched to my walking shoes for all of those activities. I wore these pumps for maybe 2 hours total today.

The stuff:
My black stomacher worked under my new-to-me leopard belt, which I thrifted during my Christmas shopping ("You aren't supposed to shop for yourself!" growled L). But it was only a dollar! For Talbot's! And it's leather and pony hair! How could I resist?

You'll also notice there is only one earring there...the other one fell out somewhere. I can only hope that Officer Vizzini will find it and return it to me. Or he might eat it.

  • Stomacher - InWear
  • Belt - Talbot's, thrifted
  • Cuff - Guess, thrifted
  • Earring - the Cobbler

I was so good today. I walked to and from work, then L and I went to the gym. I called my Mom (hi, Mom!) and made L and I a nice healthy dinner (tortilla soup and grilled cheese/tuna melts). And we're walking to the party (and staggering home, hee!).

Off I go to shower, pomp my hair and stick on some false eyelashes! I am looking forward to a good time, surrounded by all of my favourite people.

And speaking of favourite people, wishing you, dear readers, a very Happy New Year! Here's to 2015!


  1. Hope you have a very happy new year and a great time at the party Sheila! :)

    I love the little leopard touches in your outfit, leopard and red is always such a nice combination :) It's evening on new years day here, I can imagine you are still enjoying your party and just about to welcome in the new year! Have a blast! :)

  2. Can't wait to see your party gear! You're gorge in red and leopard - now rest those feet today : > Happy, happy new year, xo.

  3. Happy New Year, Sheila! You always seem to have boundless energy - and a bottomless wardrobe! Love the pumps!

  4. I love the red dress, and that's a great idea to layer the leopard belt over the black stomacher. Leopard print looks great with red.

    From your other post it appears you had a wonderful New Year's Eve. Here's to another year of adventures in Blogland!

  5. Sheila this simple looks is gorgeous ! I might have said before, you look fabulous in red and you can never go wrong with leopard. Too bad about the dress :(
