Call for Help: NYE Outfit

December 28, 2012

I was kind of wavering on whether I wanted to go out on New Year’s Eve or not, and I finally decided to go be social. I am meeting some friends for a late dinner at a somewhat casual restaurant then we are heading to a bar in Charlotte. Last year, a lot of people were wearing cocktail dresses, but there were also plenty of people wearing jeans (including me!). I went to a couple stores today and there were barely any dresses in stock, which was really surprising. That said, I dug through my closet and pulled out some possible choices, but now I need YOU to help me pick my central piece. Since it’s possible that we only go to a casual place, I’m not sure whether the dresses will be too fancy or if I should just throw caution to the wind and go with the dressiest piece. Below are three dresses (with my head cut off because I look atrocious today), and then a couple pictures of “outfits from the past” that I could change up a bit and wear out.









Which do you think is the best look for a NYE outfit?

Feel free to leave tips on how you’d accessorize your outfit choice:)

    2 or 5!!

  2. December 28, 2012 9:42 pm

    definitely 1 or 2, but I like 2 best!

    Is #2 what you wore when you took photos on the street in New York? I remember those photos better than anything else you posted this year because of how totally bangin’ you looked. So that gets my vote! And, it’s New Year’s, so sparkles are ALWAYS appropriate, no matter where you end up going.

    Definitely #2!! Love love love. I’d vote 20 times if I could!

    #2 all the way!!! I would just add some opaque tights…it’s bound to be chilly out there! Have fun!!

    2 or 4. Love both of them!

  10. December 28, 2012 10:11 pm

    Well, it looks like #2 is the most preferred. I like it, too. But I like #1 better assuming you really bling it up. I don’t like @3. I love the look of #5 but don’t think it’s fancy enough for NYE. But whatever you wear, you always look spectacular. BTW, I’ve ordered the red crochet/lace dress from Dressbarn via their web site along with two other dresses.

    I like number 4 the most. A little glitter is never wrong on New Year’s Eve. ๐Ÿ™‚ Number 1 would be my second pick.

    Happy New Year!

    2 or 4! Even if you’re “overdressed”, NYE is THE one time of year where it’s really ok to pull out all the stops! Listen … when I was in my early 20s, I distinctly recall going back to work after NYE, and a coworker asked me how was my holiday, did I go out? & I answered truthfully – I did, I had a wonderful! time, AND I was surprised how many people were in tuxedos that year! and her mouth fell open, because she knew I went to a “local bar” type of place BUT – it was NYE! everyone pulled out ALL THE STOPS!!!

    2, 4, or 5… You can swap out blue jeans for black skinny pants. #2 can be made more casual with leggings. Where did you get that dress?! I love it!

    2 for dressy and 4 for casual. 1 is nice but when saw 2 I knew that one was it for New Years. have a wonderful celebration with your friends.

    Number 2 if you want to pull out all the stops. But, being that I’m a jeans girl, if you want to be comfortable no matter what, I would go with #4. It has bling which makes it “celebratory” but is casual too! But I’m one who sometimes doesn’t feel “physically’ like myself when all dolled up. Ultimately, go with what will make you feel most relaxed and open to a good time and good converstation!

    Go the smokin’ hot black sequin one!! You rock that dress sooooooooooooo much!! xx

    # 1 , with a purple belt , I scrolled down to see if you have one ๐Ÿ™‚ . Purple is a ‘New Year’ colour , well in the U.K it seems to be . A silver purse/clutch would look nice as well .

    Have a lovely evening when you go out .

    Im a sucker for a pleated dress so #1 gets my vote and #4 because of the belted sparkly top. Although you are going to a casual restaurant NYE is all about glam so glam it up with #1!

  29. December 29, 2012 1:48 pm

    #2 is awesome, but if you want to keep it casual, #4 strikes a perfect balance of festive & casual!

    All look fab on you, however I REALLY like #1 if you want to wear a dress. OR #4 if you want to wear jeans. I find myself being a lot more comfortable with jeans as I tend to get hot in a dress, must be because I get nervous ha!

    Number 2 for sure! You look so good in that outfit!

    Number 2! 4 if it’s cold. But I guess it’s never really cold over there. (Hey I don’t know, I’m Finnish, we had -27ยฐF for Christmas, lol)

    Hi ๐Ÿ™‚
    I would choose the first one or the second one – but if youยดre sitting a lot, the first one is falling better and makes a nicer bodyshape! or the glitter-top, I like that one to! the leodress makes you look a little pale… better with sunkissed skin ๐Ÿ˜‰ !
    Greetings from Germany!

    Either 2 or 5 are my favorites!

  35. December 29, 2012 8:16 pm

    I say 2 its divine.

    I am new to this blogging game check me out at

  36. December 29, 2012 8:25 pm

    I love #2 because SPARKLES. #4 is also sweet, I’m pretty sure I would feel most comfortable wearing it myself, just to be with friends. You look fabulous and you’ll make the best choice!

  37. December 30, 2012 7:01 am

    I don’t think you can ever over dress on NYE! It’s the one night of the year you can go all out. No matter where you are! So in saying that I vote outfit 2. But outfit 4 is also super hot so if jeans are more the bill then go for it ๐Ÿ™‚

  38. December 30, 2012 12:36 pm

    I vote for #1 since it’s more of a casual restaurant. #2 isn’t a bad choice either, if you wanted to be more dressy.
    I hope you have a great time. You’ll look great no matter what you wear.

  39. December 30, 2012 5:33 pm

    #2 for sure! Flaunt those gorgeous curves!

  40. December 31, 2012 10:36 am

    #2!!! Start the year off fabulously! ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. December 31, 2012 11:11 am

    #1 looks great! It’s simple so you’re not too overdressed, but it can be jazzed up with accessories to stand out ๐Ÿ™‚

    I adore #4! But, maybe better for New Year’s Day cause it is more casual.

    I know I’m terribly late… but I love number 2. You look great in everything but I love that one best…

  44. January 8, 2013 1:43 pm
