Dress It Up

I hope you're enjoying your holiday, dear readers!

By now you've probably opened your presents. You may be living on turkey leftovers and Christmas goodies and feeling an immense sense of satisfaction after the Boxing Day sales. You're probably also trying to finalize plans for NYE. I'll most likely be going to a house party this year, but if I were going to a fancy fiesta, I'd love to wear something like this Laila Azhar drape front strapless dress from Shopbop ($436). Simple and sexy, this little fuchsia number relies on clean lines, bold colour, and a clever knotted drape at the empire waist for its wow factor. Although I can't justify the price tag on this dress, I can have fun picturing myself wearing it for a sophisticated dinner party. Or a gala in some ballroom with champagne and noisemakers. Or a Valentine's Day dinner with a special someone...hmm, actually, the dress may be worth it if it's appropriate for so many occasions!

How are you spending New Year's Eve?


  1. That dress is gorge!

    I will be chilling at home this NYE - was going to go to a fancy dinner with my sis and some friends but we decided becasue of the snow to ring the New Year in from the cozy comfort of the couch!

    Happy New Year, Lisa darling!
    Wishing you a fab celebration and a fashionable 2009!


  2. Oooo I love it! And I think you are right- it's very versatile but also has a wow factor- that's a great combination.
    Hope you have a wonderful, smashingly good New Year's!
