HAPPY NEW YEAR!
|"Really? You didn't even let me pose, woman!"|
As you can see, I wore the same dress for New Year's Eve as I did for my company's Christmas party. I changed up the accessories, and (aside from blog pics) none of my friends had seen the dress. Why not?
- Dress - Joseph Ribkoff, vintage 90s, thrifted; first worn here (4th outfit) in November 2015 with gold accessories
- Shoes - Poetic Licence, consignment; first worn here (2nd outfit) a couple of weeks ago in December 2015
And my ink.
I was too lazy to dye my hair before the party (and I have a haircut later this week), so I just smushed it around and pinned a fascinator in there.
- Fascinator - Heart's Content
- Necklace - antique store, gift from L
- Crystal ring - Uffizi Gallery gift shop
- Death Star ring - Soul Flower
- Earrings - Jacob?
- Earring/cuff - Claire's
My fabulous husband was the perfect mix of casual and dressy for the party, in his new steel grey tux blazer (from Guess). His shirt is a Desigual one that I thrifted some time ago, and his jeans are purple.

|"The house is all clean - are we having a party? I'd better hide."|
As noted, Friday was spent moaning on the couch and watching TV with L, then playing "Arkham Horror" till we got sleepy. Saturday, bright and early-ish, we were up and ready to go for our first - but certainly not last - brunch of the New Year, at Floyd's.
- Sweater/top - Jeanne Bekker, consignment; last seen here in October 2015 for a shop with Mom
- Skirt - Animale, consignment; last worn here for Thanksgiving in October 2015
- Shoes - Kenneth Cole Reaction, thrifted; first worn here (2nd outfit) with raisin velvet in November 2015
here, 'cause I love!).
And one must start the New Year with the Unsafe Ocelot coat.
- Cuff - Jezebel Charms
- Earrings - local
Last night, we noticed Vizzini was missing - we found him under the duvet on the bed. He crawled out, and set himself on L's pillow.

Love the ice-queen accessories for your NYE party!ReplyDelete
Your NYE party outfit is perfect, that necklace looks great with the dress! :)ReplyDelete
Glad you had such a happy start to the new year - even if the first day of it was spent recovering...that's just the sign of a good night really!
Two things today - the cuff is beautiful, and L's amazing shoes!ReplyDelete
Anna's Island Style
Lovely to see your (now immortalized by Anne) green gown. Love the leather sweater too, and the "insane" bracelet. You are such a cool kid. xoxReplyDelete
What an incredibly stylish couple you are. And you can post pictures of that gorgeous green gown again and again. Adore it!ReplyDelete
That gown! Va-va-va-voom! I wish I could look this good.ReplyDelete
The green slinky dress made the cut for NYE! I'm so sad to have had to miss it! Please don't move it along just yet - I would love to be at a party where it makes another showing although somehow I think I might have missed the boat?ReplyDelete
You and L look absolutely wonderful She. Love you both!
I should have linked to Fluevog first before posting....Logan's shoes.....I'm in shoe-love. They are so perfectly perfect. He must have been thrilled! Well done hon!ReplyDelete
Holy cow, you guys look awesome. I wouldn't think of that necklace with that dress but it's fantastic! Glad you had so much fun you felt ill-ish later. Always a good sign. Heh. Happy New Year to you and L! And V!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on the upcoming nine years of blogging! I'm very impressed.ReplyDelete
As usual, you and your beloved look fabulous. And the fascinator is to "live for." Thank you so much for sharing your headwear and your beauty with Hat Attack. I appreciate your support and all the best for you in 2016.
That dress is so lovely on you - a perfect outfit to wear to ring in a New Year!ReplyDelete
When you said that you started your blog in 2008 and this May would start your 9th year of blogging, I had to stop and count, and realized that as I started in 2009, I will start my 8th year of blogging this coming April. We are seasoned pros of the blogging world!
Although of course you deserve high praise for your outfit in the green gown (here is the PRAISE), it were your husband's shoes which indeed made me gasp. How extraordinarily nice.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous silhouette on you my dear Sheila . I always imagine you and the hubs walking into a room and getting a stare... so dapper !! :)ReplyDelete
Happy New Year Sheila. Sorry for the radio silence. It's been a rough holiday for me.ReplyDelete
