Thank you for all of the lovely comments on the last post. I hope you had a nice Christmas and/or Hanukkah! We went out for a yummy Italian dinner on Saturday night, which included a fabulous Seven Fishes risotto dish. Yesterday was a quiet day at home, very relaxing. This week we’ll be prepping for our annual New Year’s Eve gathering.
Do you have plans for New Year’s Eve? Still sorting out what to wear? Short of Black Tie events, my strategy is to stick with simple separates (or you can go with a dress if they’re more your thing) and let accessories do the heavy lifting to create a look.
Above I’ve put together a black and gold themed accessories “beauty bundle.” This grouping would work with most neutral colors as well as with red, jewel tones, and animal prints. I think the trick with more sparkly or statement pieces is not to overdo it. Options:
If your event is more low-key and too much sparkle feels like overkill, soft or muted metallics can do the trick.
