Happy Hour: Bring on the New Year and the Sequins
Dec 29, 2012
A few years ago, I hosted a small New Year’s Eve get together in a very small college apartment. Everyone got really dressed up (well, as dressed up as 21-year-olds get) and we spent the evening serving ourselves from a champagne bar stocked with fruit juice, mixers and whatever champagne Costco was selling by the case for cheap.
The details of that evening beyond the above description are understandably fuzzy. Luckily, our dear friends at The Kitchn have a how-to guide for creating your own festive champagne bar.
The Kitchn offers many helpful hints and recipes for creating a champagne bar including which mixers work best, which garnishes to buy, etc. This would also be a great idea for a bridal or baby shower. So what to wear on New Year’s Eve?
Love. Love. This Dress. It’s very art deco movement meets Vegas showgirl, but in a good way.
The ability to wear sequins with reckless abandon is one of my favorite things about New Year’s Eve. Here are some dresses that really sparked my fancy.
If you prefer to dress conservatively or your a little older, this David Meister cap sleeve dress is lovely.
I hope all of you have a safe and Happy New Year!
