Happy almost-New Year everyone! That came around quickly didn’t it?
Anyway, just the snappiest of snappy ones from me today – I’d pretty much be a failure of a fashion blogger if I didn’t at least give a nod to NYE, so here we are with some last minute outfits. If you’ve left it this late then well, you’re doing worse than ME even, but whatever.
Option 1: A very simple dress, but such a flattering shape! I kinda fancied navy rather than an obvious black or gold, and I don’t own anything else strapless so why not. Most of the AX Paris dresses I tried fit really well around the waist too – none of that gape-y back annoying thing for once. Feels like my knees are tied pretty tightly together to walk, but if Marilyn could manage a wiggle dress, then so can I. I’ve worn black and gold loads of times so grabbed a silver clutch to mix it up a bit too – this Miss Selfridge one seemed just right!
Yes I did my makeup early just for the daylight. #BloggerProblems. Urban Decay Naked2 on my eyes (betrayed my fave UDxGWEN palette!), Eyelure 116 lashes, and (for the minute) Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream on my lips because they were painfully chapped beyond belief. Hopefully it will have worked its magic by tonight! I’ll curl my hair too, ain’t no way straight is gonna last in this weather.
Option 2: Another AX Paris one. Their cuts fit so well! Just couldn’t really pass it up, y’know? These shoes are my go-to ‘going out’ pair too.
Which would you go for? I’ve already decided that my heart’s set on no.1 for tonight, but will definitely be wearing no.2 shortly! Gonna wiggle my way into 2016.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, AGAIN!

You look so beautiful in both of these dresses but I think the first one is more graceful! Have fun!

I LOVE both dresses! I think the first one is my favorite though. The second looks too sexy for NYE, but that’s my opinion. I even like lace-y dresses.. weird. You look absolutely stunning in both of them, but you’re flat out beautiful so you can make anything look good!
Happy New Year my dear! ♥

They’re both so nice aren’t they! Thank you so much Meghan, and happy new year to you too!
P.S I chose the first dress too, then the zip broke 5 minutes before I left the house so I had to change into option 2 anyway. Decision made for me!

Love the first one! Such clear and architectural lines!
lily kate1st January 2016 at 7:15 pm
Me too! Such a good cut!

The first one is definitely my favourite! There’s something so beautiful in it’s classic and simple design! Or maybe that’s just cause you look STUNNING in it. Not difficult though, you’re pretty darn beautiful hehe <3

You look so elegant and sophisticated in the first I would choose that one. The second is pretty too very fun! The first is just very lovely with your coloring.

Thank you Kaitlin! The navy works well now I’m more tanned – I looked like a ghost when I first tried it on haha. 😛
