1920's NYE

Wednesday, January 11, 2017

I was so ready to kick 2016 to the curb and welcome in a more amazing 2017! I knew I had to dress the part this year so I worked especially hard on my outfit!

I knew I would be attending a fancier party at my bosses Highland Park house so for me sequins were out- don’t worry I still love me some sequins. I was looking for something different that would set me apart from the typical NYE setup. It was no surprise that I fell head over heels in love with this gorgeous Gatsby esk dress!

I jumped the gun a little bit on this one and bought it at basically full price (enter wide eyed emoji here) I blame emotions on this one and chalk it up to a bad case of retail therapy. Plus this dress ran SO big I bought an XS (y’all… I am NOT an XS, like not even close). So after I got home I had huge buyers remorse but because I loved the dress so much I kept it!

Now fast forward to two days before Christmas and this dress went on MEGA sale.. like 40% off! So of course I bought it, not 3 hours after I bought it the company clearanced the dress down again to an additional 40% off! Y’all like steal of a deal price. After a quick call to BCBG for a price match I was back to the mall to return the full priced dress! And this my friends is why I HATE paying full price and why Dillard’s should price match!

I wanted to dress this look up and make it look sort of vintage so I added a faux leopard coat, black heels with a cute bow back detail and an art deco statement clutch! I received so many compliments on my look. With a vintage hair do thanks to Hannah at Drybar and my bold smoky eye I felt like I could have attended a 1920’s party and fit right in!

I think the best part is I can wear this dress again and again for fun special occasions or even to work!
