It's 2012!! I hope everyone had a celebrational New Year's Eve filled with family, friends, and an abundance of cheer and cheers-ing!
Post of my evening will come tomorrow, but in the interim, lovely Hannah has shared her holiday ensemble for all of us. Here's what she sent...
The other day I was making my bi-weekly trip to the Salvation Army thrift store for half-price Wednesday, and I picked up this blue beauty! I knew there was an adorable dress hidden under that lace collar somewhere!
The fix was easy. I started by ripping out the shoulder pads, then...
...trimmed the high white collar and lace off, re-hemmed the neckline, shortened the sleeves a little bit, and viola a whole new dress! I used the left over lace and a maroon-ish red ribbon to make a hair band.
I threw on a necklace, black belt, tights, and my favorite grey boots to finish it off, and was ready to go! I wore it to a annual holiday party with good friends and lots of food and is going to make it's return on Christmas Eve for the family Christmas too!
Leave a comment below of your favorite New Year's celebration! Because it’s the holiday weekend, the random winner will be picked and announced on Monday, 1/2/12. I'll still have a few more goodies to giveaway even though December is through, so stay tuned!!
New Year's Eve is also my mother's birthday, so I have fond memories as a lass spending NYE/Mom's birthday in NYC watching Broadway shows with adults. It always felt so glamorous - as a dressed up, pin curled, seven-year-old kid going on twenty - to spend the new year this way.
