Happy New Year

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:

New Year's Eve

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.

You're a knockout in that dress, lady. For serious.

Oh my gosh, look at how TINY you are. Damn, girl! That dress is totally adorable--you look amazing!

I am so glad you had such fun on NYE. You deserve it!

It was so good to finally meet you on NYE...after stalking (I mean reading) your blog.
You looked lovely that evening, and I'm so glad to see you blogging again. Keep your chin up.

I love that song list idea! Looks like a fun party. :)

I can't wait to see the new items. I had actually gone into your shop a few days ago to order something, and someone else bought it. Can you re-create some earrings for me?
