new years recap
i probably stressed out the most trying to find my new years dress. i had originally ordered it online because it was on super duper sale, but then after a week of not receiving a confirmation email, i realized that it was already sold out in my size. :( but then i had a streak of good luck during which i found out that the label my dress was from was having a sample sale and they had the dress... but only one! bright and early the next morning, i was able to go pick it up! then i had to get it altered a little bit to fit properly, and that basically took a week and my dress wasnt done until the night before new years eve. cutting it close...!
here is a shot of my dress, from united bamboo:
i loved the unique draping on this dress. and the pretty layers of fabric!
instead of doing gold jewelry, i went for silver. i didnt want to look toooo gold. i bought these fan earrings by rebecca lau, at a cute boutique called eva, over on mulberry street. i thought they were really cool... although one of my guy friends had made fun of it when i first showed him, saying that it looked like something out of the fifth element. whatever that means! they dont have an image of it on the website anymore, but a couple of similar looks in the series are these:
i chose one without all the dangly stuff, but was just one huge earring made up of a series of bent pieces of silver.
this was my outfit!:
p.s. are there any blythe fans out there? i absolutely love her. especially the gina garan photos of her.. sooo beautiful! im so obsessed with blythe that i decided that i would love to own a doll that wore my clothes. basically, i want to turn myself into a blythe doll! and so i photoshopped blythe wearing my new years outfit. im strange... i know...
