Happy New Year!

2011 was a year with a lot of changes! Graduation, new city, new apartment, new job, etc. This was the first year where December didn’t resemble the previous January AT ALL. In a good way though! I’m very excited to see what 2012 has in store! 🙂

I rang in the New Year in bows and sequins, of course! My roommates and I hosted a pretty awesome party, if I do say so myself. I think it’s safe to say that everyone had a great time!

Dress: Tibi (rent it here)
Heels: Vince Camuto
Ring: Kate Spade
Bangle: Sequin NYC (similar)
Nails: Essie – Cocktail Bling (OBSESSED.)

How did you ring in the new year?! I hope it was filled with sparkles. 🙂

    Love the dress – I love a good sequined dress that isn’t in-your-face gold/silver (though there is a time and place for everything!).

    I thought the dress was beautiful from the front, but the back is WOW! I like the way you’ve accessoried it too, those nude heels team well with the midnight blue.
