I spent the last few hours of 2011 laughing hysterically with my friend, Autumn, drinking fine wine with my other friend, Laura, and sharing snacks with my husband. Laura invited about ten of us over to her condo near the Space Needle so we could watch the fireworks and ring in 2012.

The upcoming Bloggers do it Better challenge is sequins, so I carried my sequined purse. I added even more shine with a metallic-threaded tank top and satin blazer. A vintage slip-as-skirt rounded out the look.

I drank a lot of delicious bubbly and I have Autumn to thank for volunteering to be our designated driver.
