A Very Velvet New Year’s Eve: Two Ways


For the past few months, I’ve been on the hunt for an emerald green velvet slip dress (not specific at all, right?!), and finally found one just in time to watch the ball drop. Since the slip dress trend is so easy to style and dress up or down, I decided to do just that for a special NYE two ways post!






For the casual look, I went for the Cher Horowitz inspired layering trend that has ruled 2016. I topped it off with two more huge pieces from this year – a choker and Adidas Superstars. Because why wouldn’t I go full 90s to ring in the new year?

To dress up this velvet slip, I slipped on a faux fur coat, some lace-up heels (with tassels!), a lariat necklace, and an envelope clutch. For the finishing touch, I added a dark lip for a little drama.

Ringing It In: Two Ways


What’s better than sparkly sequins on New Years Eve? Adding feathers into the mix. Today I’m showing off two pieces from Tres Carmen with my two favorite NYE embellishments, sequins and feathers, with both a casual and a dressy look. Enjoy!



Y’all, I am totally smitten with this sequin top. The sequins, the blush tones, the little feather peplum – swoon! Although it could be easily dressed up, I opted for winter white skinnies for a more casual New Year’s Eve outfit.



To accessorize, I went with nude heels, pretty gold jewels (including this truly fab elephant looking glass necklace from Candy Shop Vintage), and a reversible (!) Taxidermy antler box. To jazz things up a little bit – it is NYE, after all – I chose a vampy dark lip and shiny gold nails.

Using sequins and feathers in a totally different way, I went a little dressier with this fancy frock from Tres Carmen. How amazing are those blush and black feathers?!



When it came to accessories, sometimes you’ve just gotta go all black. I topped off the outfit with simple heels, a Taxidermy clutch (with optional chain strap!), and slung on a leather moto jacket to edge it up a bit. Last but not least, a swipe of nude lipstick.
