New Years Eve

I don’t know about you guys, but I have been waiting for this night to come for the last year! There are so many things I love about this holiday: getting dressed up, going to a great party, and hanging out with your family and friends, what could be better? This year, I am flying down to L.A. with my close friend Giacoma to go visit my best friend Sarah. We are going to this huge house concert called TAO. Our New Years attire is probably going to be much different from all of yours. I wanted to post some great dresses, shoes, and bags you could get last-minute if you still don’t have an outfit picked out. Don’t be afraid to be different, and step out of your comfort zone. This night only comes once a year, so you should take advantage of it! Start the new year in style, okay? I hope you all have a fabulous, fashionable New Years! Be safe, have fun, and take pictures! Unfortunately, I won’t be able to blog for the next few days, but I will be sure to the second I can! Have a great weekend!

Some fabulous party dresses: think sequins and/or form-fitting:

Party shoes are a must! Get a great pair of heels that have an edgy twist to them:

Make sure you get a clutch, so you don’t have to carry a huge bag around:

Today's Diamond In The Rough

Since tonight is New Years Eve, I am really getting into the spirit of dressing up. Well, I guess I am always in the spirit of getting dressed up! You know what would go great with your New Years Eve get-up? An amazing piece of costume jewelry! That is why when I found this gold and turquoise bracelet and ring (I am more fond of the bracelet), I knew I had to share it with all of you. This bracelet will really make your whole outfit pop. Turquoise and gold are a great combo and to me, they look very festive together, and that is what the holidays are about! Don’t be afraid to overdo your look. It’s New Years, you have an excuse!

Get it here.

Cirque Du Soleil

My family and I went to go see Cirque Du Soleil in San Francisco, and it was outstanding. This was my second time seeing one of their performances, but let me tell you, I do not remember the show being as intriguing as this one. Everything about it from the music, to the costumes, to the set design, these people really outdid themselves. Of course, one of my favorite parts of the show was the costumes. This year they were so unique. The whole cast was dressed up as different types of bugs, and each “family” had their own set of tricks they could do. I of course had to have my dad buy me a souvenir: 25 Years of Costumes. It is a huge fabulous book, and I can’t wait to read about all of the different years of Cirque Du Soleil’s costumes, and the thinking behind all of them. If you have some extra time, I really am encouraging you to go see this performance, you will be blown away!
