In between a full-time job, graduate school, a full DC-grade social schedule, and blogging, I have really come to love the fashion magic one can make by pairing stunning pieces with basic pieces. This New Year’s Eve even you may have been too busy to go shopping for a new party outfit. See what statement items I am pairing with a basic black Alice & Olivia dress (pictures to come) to celebrate in style in my hometown, New York City. Just remember, a little sparkle goes a long way! Happy New Year Loves!
