I sincerely feel that you can’t have an “NYE” without the “NY.”  For New Year’s Eve in New York, I tipped my hat to the average New Yorker’s love for all things black in their closet.  This Alice & Olivia dress is the LBD I return to over and over, whether for an Embassy reception, an interview, a holiday party, or a family function.  It is not too short but short enough to show off the only part of my body I enjoy working out – my legs.  Call me a leg press addict!  Its puffy capped sleeves are made feminine to edgy with a touch of true leather.  This dress was perfect right out of the Saks Fifth Avenue delivery box, no alterations required, which is why I love Alice & Olivia.  Many higher end labels run large and are of no use to me unless I throw in a tailoring budget.  This would mean taking a trip to New York to go to a trusted Indian shop tailor. Nope, Alice & Olivia is truly ready to wear.

Many of the last minute accessories from my previous post are featured right here, with lots of similar pieces for you below.  Did you also wear a basic outfit with tons of statement pieces last night?  Enjoy and a Happy New Year to you all! 🙂


PS: These bow pumps by Nina New York are SO comfy.  Make sure you snag a pair for those endless social events that you love but your feet don’t!
