happy 2011!

Hope everyone had a great NYE! My night was, uh… eventful, to say the least! But I did rock the good old gold dress. And I made a post for it anyway.

From Express, years ago. It was just too perfect a party dress to pass up. And despite feeling like a stuffed sausage when I tried it on earlier in the week (ladies, you know it happens), I ended up feeling great in it.

Jewelry was also from Express (did not plan that). I really love the earrings because they’re three different metals, and their chandelier shape sort of echoes the sequins of the dress without being super obvious.

Also paired a smoky-ish eye with juicy pomegranate lips.

My good, longtime friend Jenny (we’ve known each other since kindergarten) also came in, which was just a ton of fun.

She wore an Adrianna Papell asymmetrical satin and lace beaded top (with corset-like boning), black skirt & boots, and Simply Vera tights (which she loved).

Gosh, wasn’t I so stylin’ for bowling at 10pin?! :)

Smiles from Liz & me! Here’s to a fantastic 2011! I hope all your dreams come true.
