NYE Dresses: No Accessorizing Required

OMG! Can you believe it?? The most overly-anticipated night of the year in almost upon us. Yeah, New Years Eve is almost here and it’s that one holiday you want to go perfect, but usually turns out to be a bust. Well, at least you’ll look amazing and here a are a few super-skinny-budget dresses that require little-to-no accessories. Less pairing means less money and less time.

1. Winter White

The LWD is a new DO and only a daring fashionista will be wearing it.

Tag: B. Darlin Shirred-Feather Skirt Dress w/Broach, Was $130.00, Now $39.99 at JCPenney.


2. Serpent Chic

This is for the vixen. Let makeup be your jewels, not jewelry. Smokey eye and confidence is all this dress needs.

Tag: One-Shoulder Serpent Dress, $25.90 at Love Culture.

3. Sequin-Shine Time

Yeah, I know this is the “IT” look of the night. I love sequins, and this is a great price, but the two dresses above are a little more interesting. Don’t ya think??

Tag: Sequin-Shoulder Dress, $15.50 at Forever 21.

Check back tomorrow to see my NYE dress and my major announcement!!!

Take note: This item is currently only available in Large, but click here for a similar, sequin top!
This top is cute and classy for the office, sexy and stylish on date night, and show stopping in the summer time.

Sale-Rack Report: Blingy Juicy Handwarmers w/ Nail Color

Handwarmers are so freaking cute. I’ve been googling them quite often and this particular pair also comes with a Deborah Lippmann nail color to match. Afterall, you nails gotta look good and coordinate. They don’t actually need to coordinate, but if you want them to the search for the matching color is already done for you.


I know I’ve been featuring an overload of sparkle and shine, but it’s the holiday season and those bows are so freakin’ cute! Plus, they are perfect for driving and can go with so many styles of coats.

And did I mention Deborah Lippmann polish retails for around $20.00 normally?!?


Tag: Handwarmer & Nailpolish Set, Was $68.00, Now $49.99 at Juicy Couture.

Take Note: Come in black too, but the polish is the same.

Glitter-Glam Manicures

If you haven’t noticed, I am on a sparkle mission. Nail polish is cheap, chic and glitter polish takes little-to-no technique. Any non-artsy fashionista can pull it off!

Here are a few polishes worth workin’ on your digits.

Ring-a-Ding Red

Add over an oatmeal color and make your nails look like sugar cookies!

Tag: Dazzle Dry – Garnet, $9.25 at VB Cosmetics.

Party Pretty

Tag: Wet n Wild – Party of Five, $1.99 at Walgreens.

Gem-Stone Glitter

Tag: Sally Hansen Gem Crush – BeJeweled, $6.99 at local drugstores.

Designer Steal: Kim K.’s Sequin Blazer

Loving sequins and glitter right now? Me too!! Glitter heels are so festive, and here are some affordable pairs!   There are a few other items that are shiny and sparkly too. This skinny-budget steal is designer and perfect for Christmas, New Years and many happy hours for 2012.

Big-Budget Splurge

Found this picture of the Kardash crew on Rachel Zoe’s Tumblr. Love the look of the sequin blazer. Hate that I can’t afford it.

Tag: Rachel Zoe Liza blazer, $495 at Cusp by Neiman Marcus.

Skinny-Budget Steal

Still a nice brand, but one fifth of the cost. Much better for my bank account and will make happy hour much happier.

Tag: Sequin-Ruched Sleeve Blazer, Was $199.59, Now $99.99 at Calvin Klein.
