Now, it's time to finish getting ready for the big night!
Every time it's New Year's Eve, I always wonder "where did the year go?!?" This year has been no exception and it's been filled with lots of changes! I'm finally getting settled into my life until the next round of changes comes at me. Change is inevitable but here's a few highlights of 2009:
- February/March: Moving to The Fan and living life in the city on my own - no parents, roommates, or cats. Just me, myself, and I in my giant walk in-closet.
- May: Switched up my career again and transitioned into becoming a "shoe dawg." Such a high energy division - a lot of fun but it took a major mental/physical toll onto my body.
- October: After 6 months of living a life in shoes, I was promoted to business manager and I've acquirred an insiders perspective of the cosmetics/beauty industry.
I've now survived a successful retail holiday season, "kicked some tail and took some names," and realizing that I hold the key to my success. Roll with the punches even if you get knocked off your feet a few times, get back up and keep going! Life's too short to let a bad day get to you.
Since tonight is the infamous New Year's Eve and I have a fab party to
attend, I needed a fab new dress. On a shopping excursion with my
mother, I found this New York & Company dress on the clearance rack. Of course I tried it on because I love anything black and it fitted me like a dream. I normally tend to have issues with shift dresses - if it fits my bustline, it's usually too big in the hips since I'm more of an hourglass shape. Thus, if the dress fits and you have Christmas money to spend - BUY THE DRESS.
So to go with said dress, I'm pairing a purple cardigan from Nordstrom and purple snakeskin peep toe pumps that I bought from Target last year. I had my eye on these cute Mary Jane style leopard pumps from Payless but I decided to not make a dent in my wallet and to wear shoes that already have a happy home in my closet.
I wish all of you a fab and safe New Year's Eve holiday and a fantastic HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Much love and XOXO,
