Happy New Year Everyone! I am happy to be able to blog again. I hope you all are enjoy 2017 so far. While 2016 was inarguably a difficult year, to put modestly, I wanted to celebrate the end with a fun celebration. Last year, I participated in My Drink On’s New Year’s Eve limo bus ride. My friends and I decided to do the event again this year. So much has happened this year and part of me wanted to just ring in the New Year with wine and a onesie. Instead, I got dolled up with my friends and bar crawled. Dressing up and stepping out on the town has a way of uplifting my spirits.
Before going out, I had to find the perfect outfit to wear. Initially, I was going to wear the black velvet dress that I purchased for the Christmas Party. I woke up in the mood to dawn something new to ring in 2017. Honestly, I was not in the mood to blow money. I ventured to the Opry Mills Mall to find something glamorous yet inexpensive to wear for the evening.
It was a rainy day and I dressed down. I don’t dress to impress daily. Most of the time I am relaxed. Peep any new hair style! I love these red rodded crochet faux locs.
I didn’t see anything that caught my eye at Charlotte Russe so I headed to Forever 21 to see what I could find. Here is what I tried:
I was really hoping to wear a cute romper because a romper would be appropriate for the rain and cold. Yet again, this romper was too tight. I didn’t go to Torrid because I wasn’t looking to spend 60+ dollars on a piece.
As I was about to leave the mall, I decided to give Charlotte Russe one more chance. I went back to the store and scoured the racks. I stumbled upon this pink velvet dress and I fell in love! It was $36.99. Here’s how I styled it:
I rocked this dress with my pink vest and thigh high boots from Cato Fashions. The My jewelry is from Torrid.
Here are more photos from our fun night.
Erika showed out!! Doesn’t she look great! Friends that slay together stay together!
Instead of doing a vision board, I will list several of my goals for 2017 here.
