Golden Globes Fashion 2013 (Part 2) January 25, 2013

Hello again!!! So here’s the last half of my Golden Globes post! I’ve really had fun gathering all these looks (by the way, all photo credits go to Huffington Post!!) I love seeing the different celebrities’ ensembles at gala events, and don’t forget to like if you do too! Enjoy!

Adele (Burberry)

Adele in Burberry

Starting it off with one of my favorite singers, Adele, who, I have to say, looks pretty darn awesome post-baby!! Her signature color is definitely black, and she didn’t switch it up for this event either! First, the hair (as always), is super funky, and again, part of her signature style. It’s definitely influenced by the beehive hairdo of the 1960’s, sported by icons like Audrey Hepburn and Amy Winehouse, and Adele wears it with so much confidence and poise! Ok, so now that I’m over the hairdo, on to the dress 😛  The cut of the dress is perfect for her – the wide neckline offsets slightly broader shoulders, and the sinched waist creates an hourglass figure, while the skirt skims over whatever might be left from the baby bump, creating a flawless figure that Adele carries perfectly! The minimal makeup and jewelry is understated, but elegant, and really just fits Adele’s simplistic, but sophisticated personality 🙂

Amy Poehler (Stella McCartney & Chopard)

Amy Poehler in Stella McCartney & Chopard

Kudos to the women who buck the system and show up in blazers and pants instead of dresses!!! The key to this is to make it still feminine and stylish – unlike the ensembles seen on some celebrities who have tried to pull this look off at previous events, this particular one is very feminine, but still to the point and business-y.
So why does it work? First, the cut of the blazer, while boxy, is still somewhat fitted, giving it a less girl-trying-to-look-like-guy vibe. The blingy necklace also helps with this, giving it a decidedly feminine air. The fitted cropped pants add to this, showing off Amy’s figure, and making what would have been an office look (if the pants hadn’t been cropped) a funky, personalized, feminine look. The shoes are (in my opinion) awesome! Also notice how the bling on the shoes matches the bling on the necklace, which is also mirrored in Amy’s box clutch, giving the whole outfit a cohesive look 🙂

Carla Gugino (Rami Al Ali & Swarovski)

Carla Gugino in Rami Al Ali & Swarovski

Haha, ok, not much to say about this one, other than that I love it! First, I’m obsessed with the hairdo – if I could figure out how to do it myself (and pull it off as well), I would totally try it!! Anyways. The dress.
I love the way the panels with the crystal are mixed with the silk panels, giving it a subtle stripe effect with some weathering on the edges! The keyhole back, high neckline, and small train add structural interest, and also give the dress an unexpected twist. Carla’s makeup fits the dress, as well as her skin and hair color, and while I would have gone with earrings that maybe matched the dress more, the overall score of the outfit makes it totally forgivable 🙂

Helen Mirren (Badgley Mischka)

Helen Mirren in Badgley Mischka

*sighhhhh*…. If I get old I would so love to age as gracefully as Helen Mirren… at 67, she still looks incredible and knows how to dress to complement her age… First, I love the hair! Not sure about the color, but the curly bob complements her face shape and is a great youthful style that actually looks really good on her! Skipping around a little, the dress was also a great choice for her – the black is slimming, while the gold adds interest and character – especially with the small studs on the sleeves and around the detailing on the bodice and at the waist. The cut of the dress does a fair job of hiding and disguising trouble spots, while the drape of the dress elongates her figure and the train gives it an almost regal feel that is matched by Helen’s posture and air (in the best way :P). She’s also done a great job accessorizing, choosing accessories that pick up the accent colors in the dress (aka. the earrings and clutch). Overall, a very cohesive, age-defying, but age-appropriate look!!

Jessica Alba (Oscar de la Renta)

Jessica Alba in Oscar de la Renta

Ok. Wow. I don’t ever think I’ve seen a red carpet miss by Jessica Alba. She always looks fab… but then again, how could you go wrong wearing Oscar de la Renta??? By the way, he happens to be one of my all time favorite designers, bot just for formalwear, but also for bridalwear… his designs are always gorgeous… Anyways!!
Jessica has jumped on the Ombre hair trend that was big last fall and is still seen a lot now, and while I can’t say that it’s my favorite hair color for her, she can definitely pull it off. The dress is, as always, gorgeous, and warms up her somewhat pale skin (come on guys, it is hard to safely tan in the middle of January, so you have to improvise! xD).  The cut off the dress gives her the coveted hourglass figure, while the trumpet style adds volume and interest. She seems to have gone with an analogous color scheme here, with the light peach gown, darker peach lipstick, and dark peach feathered clutch (which, by the way, I love…. it looks almost like a furry, colored pet lol…), but she’s broken it up a little with the silver-white accents in the necklace and ring.

Julianne Hough (Monique Lhuillier)

Julianne Hough in Monique Lhuillier

Ok, so basically, I love the dress here, but I think it totally should have gone one someone else… Julianne is a little too pale for this number, and it makes her look washed out and pale. There are times when it’s ok to match your dress with your hair color, or whatever, but the blonde-gold in the dress is too close to her face and hair, making it just look washed out, while the bottom is an almost blinding white. I think what I’m trying to say here, is that there is nothing in a darker color that grounds the outfit. You can see that Julianne’s stylist has attempted to do this by adding the oxblood-colored clutch and nail polish, a d dark eyeliner, but it just isn’t enough to counteract the effect of the dress. The dress really is gorgeous though, and I think even if Julianne had dyed her hair maybe a darker brown, it would have made her look less washed out… Oh well 😦

Lea Michele (Ellie Saab)

Lea Michele in Ellie Saab

Hahaha, Lea Michele looks adorable in almost anything… and this is no exception. My favorite shortie is, like Jessica, rocking the ombre hair, but with more subtlety. The light makeup keeps her face from looking really dark (which it would have, combined with her hairstyle, had her makeup been darker), while the dress complements her figure and makes her look taller (again, though, the people behind her give away her height, lol…)  The halter cut of the dress does double duty, downsizing shoulders that are a little on the broader side (hence the reason I love halter, lol), while also giving the design extra interest. While turquoise wouldn’t have been my first choice in an accent color, I love how Lea stuck with it, using not only earrings that bring in the color, but also using a bracelet with small turquoise accents the keep the color going. I would have gone a little further and maybe used a turquoise colored sandal, or even just a buckle on the shoe in the accent color to make sure the color is kept throughout, but overall, I have nothing to complain about! 🙂

Maria Menounos (Celia Kritharioti)

Maria Menounos in Celia Kritharioti

Again, not much to say about this one! The dress is super pretty, and I love the color. Maria uses minimal jewelry to accessorize, but she makes sure to keep it all related by using the same metal and style (minimalist). One thing that I have to point out in this picture is how a stylist can always take styling cues from nature. Notice how picture perfect this ensemble looks next to the flower arrangement to the right, and against the topiary behind her. The colors in the flower arrangement are all in the same color family as Maria’s dress, and imagine how different, but how perfect this outfit would have been if Maria had taken color cues from the colors in the plants and maybe accessorized with those colors… maybe a small, skinny belt and a pair of shoes in a the dark (almost eggplant colored) purple seen in the tall, leafy flower in the arrangement, or a clutch that used the colors from the green plant in the arrangement that looks almost like an artichoke… Anyways, kind of off topic, but just an example to show you guys that nature is often one of the best places to find inspiration for color matching and so much more!

Megan Fox (Dolce & Gabbana)

Megan Fox in Dolce & Gabbana

Haha, prime example of the “color grounding” that was missing in Julianne’s outfit. In this outfit, Megan’s dark hair and clutch ground the outfit, and give the pale color in the outfit some dimension. Had Julianne take note, it might have saved her! Anyways, I love this dress… Another designer who knows what they’re doing – Dolce & Gabbanna! The only thing I have to say about this outfit is that Megan doesn’t relate her accessories. Her earrings are too light, and it’s a pinky color that doesn’t relate to the tone of the outfit. Her shoes are a light gold that really has nothing to do with the rest of her accessories. Here, the only accessory I would keep is the clutch, which was actually a hit, as it mirrors her hair color and carries it throughout the outfit. To complete the rest, I would change the earrings to this Amrita Singh pair (here), which complement her hair color, as well as something similar to these Rupert Sanderson heels (here) – both of which are in colors that match and complement the gold-brown in Megan’s hair and clutch, as well as have the same bohemian-glamor vibe as the gown.

 

Zooey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta & Kwiat

Zooey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta & Kwiat

Haha, Oscar de la Renta does it again! Simplistic gown that’s striking and bold, but totally elegant. Zooey totally understood this, and played up her accessories to match, using the timeless pearl, finishing off the look with a soft, simple hairstyle that allows the dress to take center stage 🙂
I think I love this looks so much because Zooey totally understood the tenor and overall look of the dress and just went with it, like she and Oscar de la Renta had the same mind.

Taylor Swift (Donna Karan)

Taylor Swift in Donna Karan

This was a stunning outfit on Taylor that left me wondering why in the world she rarely wears dark colors! The high drama color is perfect for her, and looks incredible on the gown itself. The only thing I might have changed about the dress is the neckline. I love the neckline to be honest, but I think an off-the-shoulder neckline would have offset the slightly overdone figure that the trumpet gown created. Otherwise, gorgeous gown! Taylor also accessorized it perfectly, using the same shade of purple for the earrings. One thing that I might have added to her accessories is a maybe a wide indian-looking bangle that matched her earrings or something like this 🙂

Golden Globes Fashion 2013 (Part 1) January 20, 2013

Hello!!! I’m back, and without an excuse this time, except that I was being lazy and taking advantage of my last week of break before spring semester starts again at college…. and cleaning my room (which, I have to say, looks amazing right now!).
Anyways, so a week after it all happened, here is my post on some of my favorite looks from the 2013 Golden Globe Awards last Sunday, split into two parts, because celebs? You really had it on this year, so congrats! There were so many awesome fashions, it was hard to pick just a few!
So here’s the first part!

Anna Gunn (Irene Neuwirth)

Anna Gunn in Irene Neuwirth

Love this dress! It’s really simple, and not something that you would immediately think of as glamorous, but the way it’s accessorized makes it look amazing! The pleating at the neckline and the blousing at the waist give the dress some interest points, and the collar on the dress just makes the whole thing click! While I would’ve liked to see at least shoes that matched the collar, Anna did a great job in keeping her accessories simple and related to each other. Plus the simple hair arrangement and peachy makeup just complete the look, and makes everything look flawless!!

Emily Blunt (Michael Kors)

Emily Blunt in Michael Kors

This is a fun design! I love the lace and the way it’s accented with the deep red crystals. Unfortunately, the high neckline doesn’t really do much for the dress; I would have opted for a small v-neck or a criss-cross bodice, but I’m not Michael Kors! Emily did a great job accessorizing this outfit, picking up the dress’ red accents with the earrings and bracelet… I would have loved to see her shoes though, but I could totally see a pair of dark red velvet cross-strap heels (like this pair by Nine West) with this dress 🙂

Francesca Eastwood (Giorgio Armani)

Francesca Eastwood in Giorgio Armani

My first thought: “Wedding dress!”. My second thought: “Her eyes are SO light!”. Anyways…. Love this dress! It does look pretty wedding-ish, though, but I think that’s mostly because Francesca (or her stylist) didn’t bother to accessorize it with non-wedding looking accessories. Maybe a pair of colorful glass chandelier earrings, or even a colored belt and a pair of bold peep-toe platforms… Too bad it was an event instead of her wedding 😦

Halle Berry (Atelier Versace)

Halle Berry in Atelier Versace

*sighhhhhhhh*…. now THERE’S a woman who ALWAYS looks good… Can’t really say much about this one… The print on the dress is gorgeous, and looks like it came straight off a graphic designer/water color artist’s computer! Her hair looks fab, the shoe choice is just right – it complements the dress without taking anything away from it. It looks pretty amazing! I probably wouldn’t have taken the slit up so high, but she definitely has the legs for it! Another score for Halle 😛

Eva Longoria in Pucci

Eva Longoria in Pucci

Can I say right now that I LOVE short celebs? I’m only 4’11”, so it’s always really nice to know that there are short people out there!
Eva, though, totally knows how to make herself look taller than she really is (the only thing that betrays her actual height are the people in the background, lol). First of all, she uses black strategically to slim, lengthen, and draw out her proportions. The sky-high heels, high slit in the dress, and the train also help to elongate her figure, as does the hairstyle, which adds another couple inches (*whispers – the real reason I wear my hair in large buns!!*). The only thing I don’t like (but I’m OCD, so don’t mind me!) is that she does nothing to incorporate the gold in the shoe soles into the rest of her outfit… To do that, I probably would’ve just changed out her earrings for something simlar to these, by Aurélie Bidermann 🙂

Hayden Panettiere (Roberto Cavalli)

Hayden Panettiere in Roberto Cavalli

Ok. I pretty much posted this because I love the dress! And the jewelry… And Hayden 😛  (She’s one of my favorite actors from “Nashville” xD)
I think everything about this ensemble was perfect, until she got to the clutch (and maybe the makeup, which isn’t the right color)… Hayden has this great thing going with the light pink color and the silver-white jewelry, but then it gets hijacked by the weird pink colored, boxy clutch, which throws off the color, the look, the shape, and kind of messes up the outfit for me! So I picked another clutch out for her – this one, by Asos (and yes it’s quilted, but the quilted pattern complements the lines and patterns in the gown bodice and skirt), is Empiredesigns approved 😉

Jennifer Lawrence (Dior Haute Couture & Chopard)

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture & Chopard

Never has the “Girl on Fire” looked so tall… The short bodice on this dress, skinny belt, endless lines and fullness in the A-line skirt, all combine to create an elegant, elongated, figure. The shade of dark salmon red, rather than being harsh and making Jennifer look pale, complements her skin tone and hair color, and creates a seamless, captivating look. Accessories are right on – subdued, simple, and streamlined – and work perfectly with the whole look.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Vera Wang)

Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Vera Wang

This dress is super cool – I love the flower print and the tulle overlay, and the way the pale cream and the smoky grey have been put together! I would never be able to pull off these colors, but it works perfectly on Julia because her skin tone matches the pinky-cream, and her hair and makeup are in the same color family as the dark gray in the gown. I really don’t have a ton to say about this because everything is perfect! I might have added a short necklace that was either black or matched her earrings, but otherwise, I have no critiques to make! (I know, shocking!! :P)

Kristen Bell (Jenny Packham)

Kristen Bell in Jenny Packham

Another score!!! This dress is so spunky! I think my favorite thing about it is the multiple personalities it has, with the almost armored look in the bodice, the sheer insets at the top, the empire waistline, and drapey feminine skirt. The makeup and hair are perfectly suited to this look, as is the minimalist box clutch! Lovelovelove 🙂

Lucy Liu (Carolina Herrera)

Lucy Liu in Carolina Herrera

Another one of my favorites, Lucy not only usually scores with her outfit, but she has the cutest smile and just looks like she has the most awesome personality! So I’m a little biased on this one, but even if I weren’t, I think I’d love it anyway! First off, her hairstyle is awesome… (my friend showed me how to do a fishtail braid over the summer, and ever since, I’ve been obsessed – except my hair isn’t long enough to do a nice one :Z). Second, the dress? Super fun! The oversize print and voluminous skirt make it look almost like a gown from the 18th century, but the hairstyle, decided pleats, and slim bodice make it very much a modern style! The powdery blue looks great with Lucy’s skin tone, while the dark green grounds the airy colors, and the light yellow and pastel pink complement the blue and green and brighten up the color scheme.

Naomi Watts (Zac Posen)

Naomi Watts in Zac Posen

Totally loving this dress on Naomi. Normally a neckline that high would look stiff and unforgiving, but the soft pleating, ribbon-ish inset panels, and keyhole in the bodice soften it up. The skirt subtly hugs her figure, while the cape-like train adds drama to the gown. And I didn’t notice this until about the 50th time looking at this picture (ok, totally kidding, I didn’t look at it that many times! :P), but the same ribbon detailing used in the panels in the bodice is used at the hem of the gown – perfect example of tying in seemingly unrelated details! Thank you Naomi!!
Oh, and I have to mention her hair…. which looks adorable… Loving the retro soft curl bob…

Shaun Robinson (Pamella Roland)

Shaun Robinson in Pamella Roland

I love teal…. and glitter…. So this dress is right up my alley! Super cute, but I think it could use a little more… For instance, the tube-top bodice does nothing for Shaun’s figure and doesn’t really fit with the drapey train look that’s going on… But switch that neckline to a halter or a sweetheart, and it’s 10 times better! Extra empirepoints for matching the clutch to the dress (safest, best-looking way to go, girls!), but the outfit really needs a different pair of earrings, an added necklace, and possibly a different color of nail polish, and maybe a loose updo instead of the half-do… but again, that’s just my opinion! Love the idea of the dress though!!

Alrighties! That’s the end of the first half of my Golden Globe review! Hope you enjoyed and stay tuned for the last part later this week! Thanks so much for your support! Comment, like, and follow! Love you guys!!

Minnie loves Mickie January 11, 2013

Hahaha, ok, so I know this post is totally random, but I was in the mood 😛

The whole set was inspired by the dress – i LOVE polka dots, and thought it was totally adorable… PLUS it reminded me of Mickey & Minnie mouse…. and the rest of the set just came from there! I matched the shoes to the dress, found matching nail polish, and then added on the accessories and makeup!
And I know that it’s super crazy, but hey – red is totally in, so take advantage of it and feel free to go a little overboard! Anyways, this look would be super cute with a messy, undone updo or a tousled bob 😛

Enjoy!

Spring Profile 2013 January 9, 2013

Hello again!! So this is an expansion on a collection of spring styling ideas based on colors from Pantone’s Spring 2013 color palette that I made on polyvore.com (which I’ve mentioned a few times, haha) . By the way, if you want to check out my account there, I have a ton of fun sets that I’ve put together in the 11 months since I joined (I couldn’t believe it had been that long), so just click here 🙂

There are 10 sets in this collection, each of which are based on a pair of colors from the Spring 2013 palette (which I’m in love with, by the way – brights haven’t gone ANYWHERE :P). There’s not much to explain about it, but I really had a fun time making the sets and pulling all this stuff together, so I hope you enjoy reading about it as much as I enjoyed making it!! 😀

Spring Profile No. 1

Spring_Profile_1

Using derivatives of “Poppy” and “Monaco Blue” from Pantone’s Spring 2013 palette.

This look is fun and definitely looks forward to a nautical summer. The colors are primaries, but the red takes center stage here, while the blue works to support it. The neutrals pull the look together and prevent the bold colors from becoming overwhelming. Texture is everything in this set, from the leather bag, to the braided belt, to the hammered metal earrings, to the patent leather wedges. I love this look, because… well… it’s nautical for one…. but I think the thing that pulled it all together for me was the earrings – the texture is SO fun, the color is perfect, and it totally gives the outfit a beachy-boho vibe! Oh… and I love the shoes!!! What could be better than bright red patent leather Gucci wedges???? (Pssstttt… the answer is nothing ;P)

Spring Profile No. 2

Spring_Profile_2

Using derivatives of “Nectarine” and “Emerald” from Pantone’s Spring 2013 palette.

Fun, preppy color is the idea in this set. Bright coral and turquoise blue take center stage here, while black and white neutrals back them up. This look is sleek, but gets a remix from the measured doses of pattern in chevron and honeycomb. Honestly, I love the colors because they remind me of the ocean out on an exotic island with all the different species of tropical fish…. So you have that exotic color palette, but it gets grounded and functionalized by the utilitarian black… But then again, to add another layer of texture and feel to the outfit, you have a messy, but feminine aspect brought in with the hairstyle and the pleating in the shoe. A bit technical, but I really believe that layering styles is what makes a good outfit a great outfit with dimension.

Spring Profile No. 3

Spring_Profile_3

Using derivatives of “Tender Shoots” and “Dusk Blue” from Pantone’s Spring 2013 palette.

  Takin’ it back! Denim shirts are back in from the 80’s, and they get a new vibe when paired with fresh colors that echo the eco-friendly, organic mindset that’s so big right now. In this set, the colors are the main attraction. They play off of each other, with the powdery blue providing a canvas that the green can stand out on. The resulting look is “calm spattered with energy”! Overall, the look is super fresh and funky, bold and punctuated, retro and modern. But overall, just fun! By the way, I have to point out the awesome clutch (texture, guys, texture) and the earrings (I can’t put a finger on why, but they’re just gorgeous!!!)….

Spring Profile No. 4

Spring_Profile_4

Using derivatives of “Linen” and “Grayed Jade” from Pantone’s Spring 2013 palette.

The epitome of indie meets girly. “How?”, you may ask. Well, a lot of the girly look comes in with the sweet and innocent pastels, sequins, and shine. Then comes the indie adventurer in the form of irregularly shaped stone, jute rope, and untamed hair. So again, the attraction in this set is the mix of characters and the use of dramatic and seemingly unrelated textures and accessories, leaving nonchalant pastels far from boring!!! Looking at it, this set is also a little beachy and reminds me of an older beach house that’s more refined and classy 🙂

Spring Profile No. 5

Spring_Profile_5

Using derivatives of “African Violet” and “Lemon Zest” from Pantone’s Spring 2013 palette.

This set uses principles of color relationships – complementary colors (the yellow and purple) and monochromatic (the different shades of purple). The look, again, uses a background color (purple) and a standout color (yellow). This color combination makes the whole outfit energetic and bold. However, there is also attention to detail here with the lace pattern in the top, the embossed design on the clutch, and the intricate metalwork in the bangles – all of which are a little Indian inspired, further adding to the exotic feel! This outfit definitely the kind of bold that gets reserved for a night out, but you can make it work for daywear by using neutrals as the base and using just the accessories instead 🙂

So that’s the end of this post, but I hope you enjoyed it, and as always, like, comment, and follow! Thanks so much, and hopefully I can post again soon!!!

Happy New Year’s!!! January 1, 2013

So here’s the post I promised you guys on New Year’s eve!! I’ve been super lazy the past few days, so I haven’t gotten to the Christmas Eve post, so I’ll have to do it in the New Year… (I know, shocking!)

Anyway, I love to have some good fun, so parties are about my favorite thing ever (my friend and I are working on planning a New Year’s eve bash for next year – involving a lot of glitter :P). But just because you’re going to a party doesn’t mean you have to look like it! I believe in being fun and classy, and this outfit kind of shows that off, so more pictures and less talk! Let’s go!

The whole look :)

The whole look 🙂

IMG_3213

Top and Jeans 🙂

IMG_3235

I splurged a little on this top and spent about $20 on it at Old Navy. Told you guys I was going to be wearing sequins this season!! xD

LOVE these skinnies! They must've been meant for me, because I found them in my particular size (which is so small it's almost impossible to find) sitting on top of a display of other skinny jeans... and it was the only yellow! And at $15 on sale? They were absolutely meant for me :P

LOVE these skinnies! They must’ve been meant for me, because I found them in my particular size (which is so small it’s almost impossible to find) sitting on top of a display of other skinny jeans… and it was the only yellow! And at $15 on sale? They were absolutely meant for me 😛

IMG_3248

Pumps by Soft Style – these are SO cute! Pretty sure I found them at Syms before they went out of business, but i DISTINCTLY remember them being $22! They’re great pumps when you want to wear  pumps on a normal day to dress up an outfit a little, but still be casual, but they also work for dressier outfits as well. And the heel height (which is a littler shorter than I like normally), is great for just hanging out 🙂

IMG_3250

Soft Style pumps: pleating detail – You can tell that I love black pumps with fun details on the front… 😛

 

This time I went for a lighter, more natural look for my makeup (although unfortunately, it was too light, so I had to go fix it up halfway through working on the photos :P). I’m wearing a Bare Minerals liquid foundation, light shimmer eyeshadow, mascara to add some girly drama to my lashes, and makeshift blush (combo of eyeshadow and lipstick – cheap trick for people like me who hate spending a lot of makeup non-necessities like blush, which I hardly ever wear!). If I were to do this shoot again, I would probably switch out my lipstick for something darker or add a pair of fake Ray Ban’s to add some dimension to my face…

IMG_3237

Hair and Makeup (and my hair IS pretty messy, I apologize)

IMG_3245

Eye Makeup – light shimmer powder with a thickish liquid liner and mascara on my top and bottom lashes. I started out with just the shadow and mascara, but my makeup was getting completely lost in the outfit, so I added the liner to give my face a little more presence.

IMG_3255

Mascara: “Impactfull” by Studio Gear                    Eyeliner: “Black” by Prestige Cosmetics                   Lipstick: “Jump” Shimmering shadow dust by Prestige Cosmetics                   Eyeshadow: “Pink in the Afternoon” by Revlon

So I’m at the end of another belated post! Sorry it took me so long to post it (I had almost all of it finished, but then I had to go to the New Year’s Eve party I was wearing this to!), but I hope it was worth the wait! As always, thank you for reading – like, post, comment, and have a happy new year!!!
