What to wear for New Years

I always love the idea of a New Year's Eve party or a night out.  I have to admit, I rarely have done either, but the idea of dressing up just excites me.  So here are some ideas for those of you that are planning an exciting New Year's Eve.  I found some of these outfits at http://www.chicagoshopping.com/chicago-shopping-new-years-eve-outfits-on-sale,0,7798095.htmlstory

 Don't we wish we could have the body to wear this and it's gorgeous for those of you that can.  Simple LBD (little black dress), black heels, simple bracelet, and a clutch... It's all you need to rock it.

 This is a little more my speed.  It's for more of a casual night out or a party at a friend's.  Can't go wrong with jeggings, a cute top, and booty heels.

 Funny, the site said this was for a friend's party.  But anyway you wear it, it's so cute!  This outfit is so feminine.  Obviously tights are all the rage this winter.

Ahh, a quiet night in with the Family.  Remember, no matter how much it seems nice to stay in pjs, dressing up makes us feel happier.  This outfit is comfy, yet stylish.

 Happy New Year's Everyone!  THANK YOU!

GAP's Amazing clothes.

I have pretty much been a Gap http://www.gap.com/ fan for many years.  Their quality in clothes is great and it's affordable.  I went on a fab date with my Husband the other night and we walked by a Gap store.  I mentioned going in, even though he didn't want to at first (he's the one who got clothes), but we did anyway and I am in love!  I sometimes find their clothes a little too casual, but they have hopped on the sequins train and I'm ready to take a ride! :)

This jacket is perfect!  It's not too flashy, but flashy enough for girly me.

This might be better for people afraid of a jacket totally made out of sequins.  It's subtle and would look great layered over just about anything.

You can't go wrong with flats, or flats with glitter for that matter.  They come in different colors and you really can wear they everyday.

Ahhh a wallet made out of glitter!  Perfection!

 Now this has the winter season written all over it.  I would have to try this one on since I have trouble with skirts, but you never know, it could be fab!

So the store had these amazing purses made out of sequins and I can't find them on the website, but don't fret...  I will be making a Gap appearance and will take pics!  Go check out GAP!

The first of many Sephora blogs

Sephora is what I call my Mecca.  I honestly can say I hear angels sing when I walk into a store.  I have always loved makeup, high end makeup especially and this is just the place that has it all.  Here are some of my favorite items from Sephora.

 Nars blush in orgasm is a best seller and has won awards for people's favorite blush.

Diorshow blackout mascara is the best mascara out there.  There is no other out there.  It's thick, it curls, and it's perfect.

So I am new to primers.  But I'm falling in love.  Put them on before foundation/powder and your skin will look silky smooth.

Nars lipgloss is by far the best.  Try misbehaving, it's a subtle red gloss to add a hint of color to your lips. 

I am new to gel liner.  I was afraid at first too, since I'm used to pencil, or maybe a little liquid liner.  This is so easy to apply with the Bobbi Brown liner brush.  It's perfect for that cat eye look.

I could go on and on about Sephora and there will be many more posts to come.  I say check one out, if not check out their website.  It's easy to use and for all those Iphone people, they have an app too.

Seems like spring

I came across a cute website called Lulus. http://www.lulus.com/whats-new/view-all.html.  They have super cute clothes at an affordable price.  These are looks that seem for to be for spring.  Some stuff was a little young looking, but still adorable. 

This is one piece and I love the folds of the clothing. $62

I love shoes in out of the box colors.  It adds flare to any outfit. $31
A very vintage look!  But with the shoes it's perfect! $34.50

It's nice to look ahead and see what's in for spring.  Even though I am person who mostly wears black, I love a little pastel every once in a while.  Try wearing a color or colors you normally don't wear.  It will brighten your day! :)

A new fave website

I was awaken in the wee hours of the morning, so I thought I would check out cute clothes to make me feel better about the long day ahead.

These are from www.modcloth.com http://www.modcloth.com/store/ModCloth/Womens/Dresses/Romance+and+Intrigue+Dress

It looks a little matronly at first, but it's adorable.   

This would be flattering on so many figures and it has the zipper detail in the back.


Love this babydoll.  Not for every figure, but if you're the lucky one...great!

I found all these dresses in the sale section!  Nothing over $30!  Check out the website, it's great!

Just fell upon...

Just found these!
 This was an interesting blog.


So I mentioned in the last blog about Kourtney Kardashian's fab tights on the Today Show.  I can't stop thinking about them!  I found out what brand they are.  They are Wolford Tightshttp://www.wolfordshop.com/vm/StoreHome/?viewType=01&cid=2&nsctrid=c2VtbKd1c6c1MzMyMzUyM1gxMTA3MTRDMTAyNjExMjk3N1RTVVOn
Wishing I had the legs for these.

They have Hosiery and lingerie.  However, it's a bit pricey.  Here are some things I love on their page.
I love these chevron tights.
 These green python are adorable.

Here's the cheap version.

 These are $5.88!  I found them on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/007Lingerie-Leopard-Print-Tights/dp/B001DBKXFM

This color is gorgeous!

Get out there ladies and buy some tights!  It's getting colder!  Pair them with a cute dress, or skirt, or even try them with shorts.
