So this is possibly my most ridiculous outfit wish-list to date because it’s all so horribly out of my price range! However, it’s New Years Eve soon and an excuse to dream big for a night (I’m sure it’s the only night of the year when we take stock of everything and vow to do better – then it all goes back to normal the next day). Each year I always declare wondrous plans for a fresh start etc, so I thought I might indulge myself and put together a dream outfit wish-list for New Years Eve – after all, you have to look your best when preaching about big 2014 plans. I think NYE means something different to everyone, but for me, it’s not ‘how’ you spend New Years, but ‘who’ you spend it with. I would much prefer to be with the people closest to me, so I think that as long as you’re with the most important people, then it doesn’t really matter what you’re doing – you might as well look good though, of course 🙂
In terms of the dress, I don’t think I could dream up a better one if I tried! The satin material is beautiful, I love the elegance of the fit and, amazingly, it’s a stunning evening dress with sleeves! I will always opt for a dress with sleeves if I can, I’ve always had a thing about my upper arms and unless they magically transform into slender beauties overnight, then I would definitely prefer to keep them covered up (especially at this time of year when I’m super pale and very un-toned!) I think in the past, I would have definitely used a plain black dress as an excuse to go a bit OTT with a chunky statement necklace or some chained pieces, but these days I’m travelling along the less-is-more route, so I would just wear a small but delicate necklace. Obviously I can’t see this Tiffany & Co necklace sitting on me any time soon, but wouldn’t it be nice! I got lost on the Tiffany & Co website yesterday looking at all the pretty things (it’s ok to just look right?) and also found these stunning earrings which I think would be lovely with this outfit combination. You can’t beat plain gold sometimes, so these made it onto my wish-list too!
Now the shoes – I actually have these! My lovely boyfriend bought them for me for Christmas and they really are such an elegant pair of heels, I love them to bits! This is a style of shoe that I really like at the moment, the pointed shoe is one of my favourites and on this pair, the gold buckle detail just takes things up another level! They fit me perfectly and, of course, would go so well with this dream outfit – so I’m very lucky to have been bought them. I think the beauty of wearing a black dress with black shoes is that you can add a nice splash of colour with your accessories and make-up, I think it’s easy to over-do things, so subtle is always a good call. This Ted Baker clutch bag is stunning, just the right amount of colour for the look but not too garish – plus I’ve been lusting after Ted Baker bags for years, so one had to be on my wishlist! Plus what better excuse than NYE to indulge in a lovely red Elizabeth Arden Lipstick? I couldn’t think of a better lip colour for the occasion!
Coat wise, I felt it appropriate that a gorgeous pink coat made it into the dream outfit selection! I’ve been lusting after a pink coat every since it hit the highstreet this year – but I just don’t have the nerve to buy or wear one yet! I think it’s a beautiful colour and this one from Topshop is a lovely style, but I’m still slightly hesitant about buying one – plus this one is pretty expensive so it’s not a decision I would take lightly. Perhaps if I find a wonderful pink-coat bargain then I might consider it. Either way, I think this coat would be a lovely touch to this outfit and all together a rather glamorous look (I just wish it wasn’t all so expensive). Anyway, I hope whatever your plans are you have a great New Years Eve, looking good and feeling fabulous!
