We went to a really great house party this New Years. It was a ton of fun. The hosts had everyone tell them their favorite song of 08 for a playlist, which meant that everyone got to hear at least one of their favorite songs. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I am not the only grown up who still loves pop music. The playlist was totally danceable and everyone danced all night long. I only knew a couple of people before we got there but everyone was so friendly and open and I had a fabulous time.
I went with a plain black strapless dress from Forever XXI that I got for a Mardi Gras party last year. I actually wore it a lot this summer with some Jeffery Campbell ankle wrap sandals and a grey tank. I wore it like that so often I almost forgot it worked as a cocktail dress!~
I went for simple, with the focus on my jewelry:
I felt really good. I admit I spent all night tugging the dress up, as is pretty much always the case with a strapless dress, and my shoes were killing me…but I felt pretty. I felt good. And I had fun. It was wonderful.
