Looking for something to wear New Year’s Eve? I got you!
Yes! A new year is finally here and I can’t wait to see what it has in store!
This year has been full of ups and downs, but it was not as bad as everyone on my FB feed is making it out to be. Actually, this year has been full of blessings – a new job, new creative opportunities, and a boyfriend turned fiance. I am incredibly grateful for the blessings this year and look forward to 2017!
So I thought what better way to end a great year and ring in a new one than getting all dressed up?! Trey and I never really go out New Year’s Eve, but this year we’re celebrating with friends and I’m so excited!
I managed to grab this velvet wrap dress a few weeks ago before the holiday. I didn’t have high expectations for this dress from looking at it online. I liked it but didn’t love it on the model. I also wasn’t in love with the color, but when I pulled it out of the bag and put it on, I didn’t want to take it off! In person the velvet is beautiful and the color ranges from a beautiful dark teal to a royal blue, depending on the lighting. It’s pretty low cut, but it was nothing a safety pin couldn’t fix.
What I love most though is how incredible comfy it is. It’s not too tight so I can eat all the NYE hors d’oeuvres I want. And unlike my past years NYE dresses which were backless, strapless, or some combination of the two, this one allows me to wear a normal bra. So no worrying about adjusting dresses or strapless/backless sticky boobs.
*If you’re interested in any of these dresses, Asos has an awesome rushed delivery! Nordstrom does too! Here are a few velvet dresses you can get in time for the new year.
Happy New Year’s to you and your loved ones!
Sidenote: sorry about all the hand-in-hair poses. These pictures were taken when it was really windy out and right before the rain, so I had to pull it together real quick!
