Bargainista Babe: New Years Eve

Hello all! Massive apologies for the lack there of posting... Finals kicked my butt but I managed to survive with a B in Survey of Economics and a C in Marketing Management. I'm on "winter break" from my county job so I am working full-time for my always fabulous retail gig for some extra cash. Classes start back up again January 7th and hopefully taking Business Leadership as well as Spreadsheet Software (Excel) won't be too taxing!

Earlier this week on Wednesday, I managed to record my Bargainista Babe spot for Q94's Melissa and Sid which aired on Thursday morning. I haven't heard the official end result myself but I talked to a few who caught it on air and said it was really good.

So here's a re-cap of what I featured!

You always want to look fabulous on New Years Eve and a classic little black dress (L.B.D.) is always a good choice. My two picks are by Old Navy and AB Studio at Kohl's. Both dresses feature empire waists which are great if you enjoyed a bit more than your fair share of cookies, fudge and other holiday delights. The AB Studio dress is good for covering up any "arm jiggle" but still shows a bit of tasteful cleavage (sounds like an oxymoron but trust me on this one).

A great dress always needs a great pair of shoes to go with it! I've liked some of the shoes for the Hollywould line at Target, these red shoes are too cute and will add a nice pop of color to your outfit. Check out the matching clutch too!

I'm still a Payless girl at heart so check out their massive collection of cute party shoes. Ladies, remember that you do need a bit of a heel when wearing empire waist dresses so you don't look frumpy and make sure to wear your heels around the house a bit to break them in before New Year's Eve!

If you decide to stick with a black or metallic shoe, why not add some color with some fun footless or patterned tights in a bright color! Target always has a great selection of fun hosiery but also check out DOTS, Ross, T.J. Maxx, and K&G Fashion Superstore as well. You never know what you might find! DOTS also has a good selection of cute metallic and sequined clutches so if you want to go the metallic route for a handbag, check them out!

For jewelry I'd suggest a pair of dangly earrings and a cute bangle. Target has a cute jewelry selection including their Marvella line. A fun pair of earrings will work for New Year's Eve as well as any fancy event or to dress up a simple outfit.

I hope you all have a great Christmas and a happy holiday season! Happy New Year too!!!
