New Year’s Eve Outfit

The outfit I pick for New Year’s Eve depends on what I’m doing. I’ve worn everything from a ballroom gown and heels to a motorcycle jacket and armored pants. (It was a midnight ride, and perfectly appropriate for the occasion.)

I might even wear PJs. Sometimes New Years isn’t a huge party, but an intimate stay-home-and-cozy-up event.

Truth be told, this year, I’ll be home early. Hubby is getting his wisdom teeth out the day before and I plan to be home with him. I’ll leave him for a bit around dinner so I can grab a bite with friends, but I want to be home well before the clock strikes midnight. For me, it’s not New Year’s if I can’t kiss my sweetie.

So my outfit this year won’t be special, but it could look something like this:


Jumpsuit: Rachel Roy via consignment
Tights: Target
Shoes: Poetic Licence
Rubber cuff: Shop in Honolulu
Vinyl purse: Shop in Pittsburgh

I found this jumpsuit (onesie?) at a consignment shop and adored it! I might not have forked over a lot for it, but it was a great deal and worth a try. I snapped these pictures shortly after I bought it (spring–see the pretty daffodils?) but never posted them. They’ve given me my New Year’s outfit inspiration though, so I’m glad I saved them,


It’s a fun look for dinner, drinks, dancing, and dare I say, New Year’s. I could wear this in warmer months–it is a shortset–but I like it paired with tights. Plus, it’s a chance to wear my purple velvet and sparkle heels! I tried to match my shoes and tights to elongate.

Do you have any special New Year’s plans? No matter what you have scheduled, have fun, be safe and:

See you in 2014!

My Electric Blue Jumpsuit

I made a video a few weeks ago to help people learn how to find vintage deals on eBay. One of the items I talked about was this 1980s-era jumpsuit. I mentioned that jumpsuits are really on-trend right now and that I don’t want to pay a couple of hundred dollars for one. This one was $3.99 and does the trick. Here are two ways to wear it:

First, I accessorized with a statement necklace, funky belt, and killer heels. I like the look and I’d wear it to dinner or dancing.

Belt: From of a dress I got at Express
Necklace: Macy’s
Shoes: Badgley Mischka

I thought the jumpsuit would look great with tall boots too. I can tuck the pant legs in or roll and cuff them and wear them over the boots. This is what I wore to my 40th birthday party last night. My birthday is today and I’m celebrating for three days straight!

Necklace: Premier Jewelry

It’s kind of space-age, don’t you think? If a one-piece look is too intense for you, try wearing a blazer over a jumpsuit to break up the color. Have you tried the jumpsuit trend? Would you dare?
