Last minute outfits for New Year's!

28.12.12

I can't hardly get over the fact that Christmas is over already. Somebody pinch me.. But now it's time to gear up for New Year's! And of course the usual 'What do I wear' dilemma haunts us all.. Everyone wants to end the current year looking their best and start a new one as glam as ever.. Isn't it?

I'm sure, most of you have already have already picked your outfits for NYE. But for a few lazy ones or maybe I should say very busy ones and some others who just love cutting it close, here is a little helpful guide on what you can wear to end this year with a bang!


My top 5 picks for New Year's would be..


A classic LBD

LBDs
You can never go wrong with a simple black dress. Just pick good accessories to go with it. Use printed bags or shoes, bright colors especially on your lips or metallic accents in your jewelry.

Animal Prints

Animal Prints
Well none of my lists can ever be complete without animal prints. I freak out over them. Trashy when not worn right, but you can't deny a sexy animal printed dress. 

Sweater dresses

Sweater Dresses
Well you know, it's officially winter, and can get a bit chilly, and these sweater dresses are just so cute.

Lace dresses

Lace Dresses
Lace dresses have been the trend du jour for a while now. Nothing looks as demure and sexy as a lace dress  with a low back. Pick the right accessories and you're good to go.

Sequined dresses

Sequined dresses
Nothing says shine on New Year's like a sequined dress. Go for classic gold/silver, or even a black, but if you are bolder, try different colours.


If you noticed, I've used red accents, in the form of lip wear and accessories in each and every look of mine. Maybe that's because I'm still in The Christmas spirit.

Anyways, have a great time, stay safe, and see you next year!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope each and every one of you has a great and enjoyable one!

My Christmas ritual has pretty much been the same. It's midnight mass with the family (I'm a Catholic, if you didn't already know) and then after that family and friends always come over to eat sandwiches (another ritual thing) and drink wine or whatever they fancy.

Usually my sister and myself always have other plans, and we do sit at home for a while but by 1am, we go to one of our own friends house for what we call a nice quiet house party.. sshh!
But this time, we stayed at home. And post 5am, the shenanigans began..

 I sometimes love laying my clothes out like this.. Who else does this?

Outfit details.. Mixes of navy, pink and blue.


Yes I know my accessories match her really well!

 And then we changed into our pajamas. I have gingerbread men all over with 'Bite me' and 'Oh snap' all over! I just love street shopping. You never know what you will find!

I'm an Instagram addict. There I said it. I have over 700 pictures.

This was after everyone went off to sleep. Dad, Sheehan, Patrick and myself had a blast!




 



Okay these last two were completely my dad's idea. He asked me to climb up and pose!

A few gifts from my aunts!

Life is a blur...

17.12.12

There's this girl whose heart hurts inside. She aches in pain and sadness that overwhelms her. She knows her life is a total blur. There's this girl who really cries out wondering where she'll end up. But I try to cover her up with a good look and smile. But we all know who I really am... We all know I'm really her.

A little OTT doesn't kill does it? Sometimes it's fun to over-do it.
