Are you going out for New Years? I know for myself this year has been a tough for me. I want to end this year off on a good note. I want to celebrate and bring it in with a chic outfit too.
Before I tell you about this outfit lets get into the back story. A few weeks ago I was invited to participate in New Years glamour photo shoot with a bunch of local bloggers, and influencers. I was super excited to link up with these ladies. I was really looking forward to building a relationship with them. Anyway I had to be on point for this shoot. Now to be honest I didn’t have any extra cash to run out to get a new outfit. If you know me you know I shopped my closet. I was so pumped for the shoot however, it was cancelled due to photographer flight being delayed. I have to be honest I was super disappointed. However I was not going to let a cancelled photo shoot ruin my day. So I called my mom, told her what was going on, and we headed downtown. My mom is so awesome.

So when I think about an outfit for New Years Eve my mind automatically thinks about glitz and glamour. Sequins, velvet, and faux fur, were the inspirations behind the photo shoot. The pressure was on. The first thing I did was I took a look in my closet to see what I already had. First I came across this cute rose gold sequins slip dress by Xhilaration from Target. It was sitting in my closet, never worn with the tag still attached. I had a purpose for this dress but I just did not get chance to wear. You know how life can me be. Anyway, this mini cami style slip dress is super comfortable. Since it was not form fitting I was able to get away with not wearing my SPANX. I would describe this dress as cami style sequins mesh with dusty pink slip underneath it . This dress ran me $25. Not bad for one night.
Next I paired this dress with my favorite mauve faux fur coat. This coat also came out of my closet. Faux fur is such a cute statement piece when you are trying to glamour up your look for NYE. I thought it matched very with the sequin slip. Super cute right? Faux fur are so on trend for the holidays. Since it is a trend I always say don’t spend all you money on fur. I would suggest to stop at Forever 21, where I purchase the featuring coat from, to get an inexpensive faux fur from. Boohoo is another good place to start.
Lastly for the accessories, my favorite part. When I was trying this outfit on in the mirror, I still felt like I was not popping enough. I felt like everything was blending together. I need another color to add. Since the accessories that I had in my closet wasn’t working I decided to head over to Target. What will match with a dusty pink? First I ran into this turquoise velvet cross body by Wild Fable. Next thing I know I found these turquoise and pink earring from SugarFix. They match so well together. Once I put the whole look together it was perfect. So for NYE add some popping accessories to you look. Chandelier earrings, or a cute clutch with bring your whole outfit together. If you ask me take a look in Target first for accessories. Target is coming through with the fashionable accessories.

Overall I am so satisfied with this look. It has all the great elements for New Years Eve look. Velvet, Sequins, and Faux Fur! All I need is a glass of champagne, LOL !
