Happy [Almost] New Years: LBD!
Happy Almost New Years!
I still can’t believe how quickly 2017 has flown by. It’s always refreshing to start a new year. Even though it’s just another day in the book of life, for me, I get a sense of renewal. Just like watching a gorgeous sunrise over Lake Travis or atop Enchanted Rock, but like, multiply that by 10 on New Years Day.
If you’re wondering what kind of new year's’ resolution I plan to be making, it is going to be the same as last year, and the year before that… and the year before that. Like most people, I always make a health and wellness new year’s resolution. But tbf (to be fair) my health and wellness journey has started long ago and is really more of a lifestyle for me now, I just like to add a few new elements to it each year. One year I told myself I would walk a minim of 8 miles each day. Some days I walked more, but for the entire year I made sure to get my 8 miles in, and I’m proud to say that I did.
But before we can get into our new year's resolution, we have to talk NYE. Most years I try to find the most sparkly dress to compliment all the fireworks, sparkles, and glitter that decorate the NYE evening. However, this year I’m trading in my sparkles for a stunning LBD (little black dress). Take a look for yourself:
I scored this stunning dress for $15. Yeah, $15 for that lil number. I know, I know, I could hardly believe the price tag myself. The fabric is super soft and incredibly comfortable for being a bodycon dress. The illusion deep v-neckline was what first caught my attention, and I worried as to how that would work with or without a bra. I’ve been able to wear it both ways with a cute, lacy black bra under and without a bra all together. With the nights getting colder, the long sleeves are a huge plus because the last thing I want is to wear a slinky strapless dress and be shivering all night long. With the long sleeves, you have the option to wear it with or without a jacket or vest, making this LBD incredibly versatile.
There is no denying that the dress is definitely a statement piece in and of itself, with its illusion deep v-neckline, which is why I decided to pair it with my edgy ear climber. I was careful not to add to much bling, but added just enough touches to really emphasize each piece individually. I added the gold clutch, and over-the-knee boots to complete my NYE look.
