Go Glam for New Year's Eve!

Well it's almost here, 2013. I actually love the cleaning-up, starting fresh, and looking forward to a new year of fun trips to plan, new places to see, books to read and home projects to start! 

Tomorrow we will celebrate with a crew of friends and our families on this mainly adult holiday. It's a wonderful to be with all our kids, who are tweens and teens now. They do crazy exploding poppers, confetti and fun games. The adults dress up (okay, the women mainly) and sometimes we don crowns and party hats!

The dress and hair above is my idea of chic for New Years. The high bun, red nails and a fabulous necklace are perfect!

 How chic is this table?  You can do so much with a mix of black, cream, silver and perhaps some mercury glass to this mix. The Whimsy Decor blog has so many cute ideas for a New Year's gathering.

If you haven't got a thing to wear, raid your closet. Anything lace, satin, diamond or furry is fair game!  Perfectly done red or dark lips and nails will add a bit of elegance.

New Year's Eve makes me dream of romantic dressed up evenings....

 If you can't get out, rent a movie that makes you swoon!

I love this casual pony tail with multiple necklaces. Do this with a black tee and skinny pants and your set for a less formal evening.

Even more relaxed is a messy bun, fabulous fancy earrings and a chunky sweater!

It's all about the glitter really. If you happen to own a sparkly jacket you're set.

I personally think every girl should have one. They're great with jeans and a tank too.

Gold pieces, the bigger the better are very in...Work your gold if you don't own sequins.

I'm loving gold heeled shoes right now and these too.

Gold and black piled on the arm or gold with a simple black dress.


This clutch is to die for!

How about clipping brooches in your hair? Or turn a fascinator around a low bun.

I noticed gold sequin skirts were in abundance at Target today..Talk about a fun piece.  For $19 you can add some glam to a sweatshirt or sweater!

Go glam darlings! Life is short. Why not be fabulous? Even if it's on your own couch!

Happiest New Year to you all!!
