Flights of Fancy for New Year's Eve

Happy holidays to you, whichever one you are celebrating!

Your family may celebrate formally or casually, or somewhere in between, but there is no doubt that New Year's Eve is all about celebratory sparkle. I had hoped to give you something wonderfully glamorous to feast your eyes upon, but alas, my laptop has suffered a catastrophic power failure and I've had to cobble a bit to bring you this abbreviated post today.

So, you need to to know three things about me:

1. I adore dressing up. Give me glamor, sparkles, diamante, or feathers (oh, be still my beating heart!) any time and I'll probably tell you it's ok to wear, somehow.

2. I have a bit of a vintage lean. Apart from the fact that life was pretty unpleasant for women during the 20's, 30's and 40's, I might have lived then. Downton Abbey anyone?

3. I can't remember the last time I made it to midnight on New Year's Eve, much less went anywhere to celebrate it.

But in the interest of every girl needing to dream, here are a few things that I should probably print out and hang somewhere where I can see them everyday.

New Years Eve sequins and feathers

As I said, nothing says glamor to me like feathers. This fabulous top found @femjungle, statement earrings from @the_butterfly_effect_tbe, shoes at Nordstrom (when does Nordstrom ever disappoint with shoes?)

So whatever your plans for December 31, I hope you'll be dressed how you want to be. All my best wishes for a prosperous and successful 2017!
