New Year Celebration

Greetings Fashion Divas,

I'm thinking about attending a New Year's Eve party this year.....again. This would make the 2nd year in a row if I do decide to go out. I know I'm going to church first, then I'll make a quick wardrobe change...and head on out for a little fun. I'm gonna try to get the gang together to join me...we'll see.

I have options in my closet to wear...of course.....but I know you fab fashion followers identify with me when I say...."I gotta get something to wear!". Oh really Shanequa...really. You are something else (in my best Kevin Hart voice). I honestly come up with any reason to search for clothes, tee hee hee! I'm actually thinking of a jumper paired with my newly purchased tuxedo blazer. Take a look below.

New Year's Eve Option

TIBI twill jacket, $495
Oasis black jumpsuits and romper, $120
Bebe high heel pumps, $80
Anya Hindmarch clutch bag, $550
R J Graziano silver costume jewelry, $75
Clear jewelry, $42
Alexis Bittar costume jewellery ring, $190
Dannijo oxidized jewelry, $223
Roberto coin ring, $260
Christian Dior Rouge Dior Lipcolor - No. 752 Red Premiere, $25
Filigree Star Tree Topper in Home Accents | Crate&Barrel, £21

I love my new blazer and the jumpsuit I actually own has medium ruffles around the bodice and jewels...looks better than my description, promise. Anyhew, I'm thinking real hard about the above option..........

However, I may go with the traditional route and just purchase a sequined/metallic mini such as the frocks I've included below.

Strappy Back Lace Tube Dress 

A fitted lace mini will be alluring and show off my, I just realized that I do not own a black lace dress. The above style is a classic (tube dresses just won't go away), I can also see it paired with my tuxedo blazer. The price is right!

Black Sequin One Shoulder Dresses 

This sequined mini is daring! I also like the transparent!

Emily And Fin Alice Black Dress 

This little black dress has high wattage shine that livens up the simple silhouette.


This dress appears to be a lovely, animal-printed mini at first glance, however, I peeped the back of the dress and it was super short and fit like a second skin. That tells me every contour of my body will be imprinted along with the material of this dress. It's a little slutty....I know.....but I still like it!

Sequin Shift Dress By Rare 

The scallop design is reminiscent of the '70s disco era. It's all the sparkles you need. But, if you're like me, you'll add a statement ring and maybe a simple pair of hoops ;-) A festive, satin pump in purple will look great wit this shift.

Silver 1 Shoulder Sequin Dress 

Can we say liquid sequins? Man this one-shoulder number has a really classy style. I love the draping on the bodice of the dress and the fitted skirt. It's sooo cute!

Lastly, a Fashion Pad reader by the name of Allie asked that I share some affordable party dresses for a New Year Celebration she's attending. Well thanks a lot Allie for contributing to my frequent swiper miles, lol. My card can rack up some points for sure ;-) Go right ahead and browse through the following slide show for some cute, trendy, and fab finds.

I added jumpsuits, dresses, and rompers. I think I'm going to be going back and forth between the jumpsuit and my cut-out mini to offer a suggestion?

After a couple of disappointing parties on NYE, I've decided not to go out. but looking out these outfits makes me want to! I love the entire first look - its sexy and dressed up without doing too much. I also really like the shift dress from topshop!

I love the idea of a jumpsuit for NYE only because everyone wears a cute cocktail dress, and I love the idea of being different.

Thanks for your kind comment girl! As for this post, I would soooo recommend going with the outfit you already have. Sounds cute! But if you can't fight the urge I really like that lil Topshop dress. It's really glamorous and would be a perfect transition from the old year to the new. Whatever you choose I hope you have a blast!

xoxo (till next time)
