oh you fancy huh

I love all holidays. 
 I rarely give up an opportunity to celebrate.
but new years is pretty high on my list of favorites.
sparklers, glitter, champagne.  ok.  i can do that.
i do realize i’ve got a little under a month to prepare … but we got an invitation to an engagement party, and it sparked me thinking about what I’ll wear.
But first, past New Years … 
2007 & 2008 ; Palm Beach & Anna Maria
2009; New Orleans … also my bachelorette.
2010 – Las Tablas in Panama

I’m not sure what I’ll be wearing, but I know it’ll be sparkly.
mark my words!
any of these guys will do.
1;$197 || 2 ;$79 || 3;$298 || 4;$45
do you have any fancy new years parties lined up?

    I'm hoping to find a sparkly number to wear this NYE also. #4 would be fun! No parties lined up yet, but we are talking about going somewhere with a beach. Fingers crossed for last minute travels!

    I've also been feeling the sparkle lately. That #4 dress is looking just perfectttttt. Oh but what shoes to go with it? Black? Or something less subtle and more fun?
