Last Minute New Years Eve Inspiration!

30 December 2011

Sequin dresses

2012 IS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Well, very very nearly! I've spent my day browsing the Internet for outfit inspiration. As a New Year's Eve rule I always opt for glitzy glamorous dresses. A little black dress is fine but I love a touch of sequin embellishment or a fully sequinned dress. It's New Years so anything goes! You can apply the same rule to footwear too, bring out the glittery heels and plenty of shiny accessories. If you can't wear sequins and glitter now then when can you?! 

There's still just enough time to place an order with next day delivery via ASOS. They have some really cute sequin dresses, like the ones above, all perfect for NYE! Hurry!

After sussing out the clothes I then went on to browse for make up inspiration. Of course what better place than Pinterest to find some ideas this year?!

A lot of sparkle right there, huh!! 

When it's New Year I seriously don't believe you can really over do the sparkles. Okay, that's a tad wrong. Maybe glittery body lotion is a bit 1999 but generally speaking it's the one night of the year where you can basically get away with as much glitter as you like!

Mind you, I don't fancy my chances at re-creating many of the looks above. I also don't know how practical it would be to do your lips like the last picture (I imagine it would make for re-application nightmares) but doesn't it look pretty. You'd always know which champagne glass was yours too!

So...what are you doing to celebrate tomorrow and what will you be wearing?



  1. I love that first dress!! We're off to a Hollywood theme party at a friend's - I'm going as a bit of pavement ;)
