New Year’s Eve Pieces to Add to Your Closet

I can’t believe 2018 is coming to an end! This year was a HUGE year for me in many ways, especially in my health journey, my faith and most importantly my relationships. I’m looking forward to a great new year and can’t wait for it to begin! I still don’t have my New Year’s Eve planned, but I know one thing: I will look fly as hell.

Here are a few things I’m loving for New Year’s Eve this year, as well as some pieces you can buy STRAIGHT from my closet! Most of these items are not yet listed on my selling apps, so you have the first look and chance to buy! If you’re located in Austin, I’ll drop them off to you on New Year’s Eve.

Multi-Color Shimmer Woven Cami Express Dress

Never been worn, this shimmery dress screams New Year’s Eve. With a little extra fabric in the front, it shows just the right amount of skin. It’s super comfortable but will keep you looking fresh all night long!

New With Tags | Size S | $40

Black Long Sleeve Deep V Romper

This is the perfect New Year’s Eve outfit because it’s easy and can be glammed up in no time! The neckline is great for showing a little cleavage if you want, and I love the slits in the arms for a little visual interest. Silver shoes, fun earrings and a furry jacket will complete your look!

Silver Halogen Heel Booties

These shoes had my back in 2018! Fun and funky, they’re the perfect statement piece for winter wear. I adore the pointed toe and love to pair them with black denim for the office as well.

I LOVE this dress, but it’s one of those pieces you can only wear in so many pictures! It’s fitted up top and loose from the waist down, with the perfect amount of shimmer for New Year’s Eve.

Strapless Ruffle Party Dress

If you’re spending New Year’s Eve indoors, this dress is perfect for you. It’s an adorable fit and flare strapless cut with small ruffles all over. It would look great with a leather jacket and high heel booties as well if you’ll be outside for the holiday!

Metallic Gold Pleated Midi Skirt

Another shimmery piece to add to your winter wardrobe. This skirt pairs well with any fitted top — My favorite way to wear it is with a scrappy heel and fitted black v-neck long sleeve!

INSTAGRAM

Fair Market (1100 E 5th St) - Bright teal metal doors and solid distressed white walls.

Blue Owl Brewing (2400 E Cesar Chavez St) - White wall with two dynamic blue stripes. 

1109 N I-35 - Sketchy, but such a cute two-tone pink wall.

Brew & Brew (500 San Marcos St) - Great for those artsy coffee pics.

How to Dress - Laid back clothes with an edgy twist. It's more than socially acceptable to show up at any bar in jeans and a cotton tee, but leather jackets and funky accessories are East Side favorites as well.

What to Bring - The two most important things you can bring to the East Side when visiting are a camera and an appetite! Home to my favorite walls in Austin, the area is perfect for snapping Instagram photos or shooting film. And the food is, well... Divine.
