New Year’s Eve parties are a pretty big deal. We put on something fun and sparkly and get all gussied up to drink champagne and kiss someone sexy at midnight. It’s tradition.
I managed to put together a New Year’s Eve look for this hypothetical party I’m going to!
Truth be told, I’ve been wearing this makeup look to work a lot lately. Red lips and glitter is a classic holiday season go-to, don’t you think?
I actually wore this exact outfit last week, when my family and I went to a fine dining restaurant for my mom’s birthday. I bought the heels last minute at Ross, on clearance. $15.99, score! They are crazy uncomfortable, though. But I rarely wear heels and I didn’t want to spend more than $20 on a pair I’d probably wear once a year. So I’m quite happy with this find.
One day, I’ll figure out a way to take decent pictures of me actually wearing these outfits. I don’t get very good natural light in my apartment, and I’m too shy to go outside and take selfies. :S

And here’s the part where I reveal that this whole post is a farce.
I don’t have any plans for New Year’s Eve. At least, no fancy plans. I work from 10am to 2pm, then I’ll probably come home and immediately change into my sleep/lounge clothes. Maybe my family and I will watch the fireworks at Aloha Tower. I might even go to a beer tasting with my sister. But I definitely will not be this dressed up. Le sigh.
Even my dog knows that I have no social life:
“Umm, what the hell are you doing? This is pathetic, you know that?”
“You and I both know that you’re not going anywhere that requires a dress this pretty, so if you’re not going to use it as a mat, then I will. Thanks.”
What are your plans for New Year’s Eve? Whatever they are, have fun and stay safe! See you in 2015. :)
