outfit du jour: new year's eve

Last night, after factoring in the windchill, it was about six degrees here. That means it was too cold to stand outside trying to think of something creative to do in my pictures, but I did manage to take a few basic ones. I recreated what I wore on New Years Eve for you. I've been saving this dress for a really special occasion for over a year now. I finally decided to just wear it. When I bought it was almost floor-length and looked super '80s, but I loved the print, so I had it hemmed and I think it has a '50s look about it now.

Vintage Dress: $35., Sweater: Old Navy, $20.

Actually a real picture from New Year's Eve. 6 a.m. coffee.

Vintage Love Know Earrings: Secondhand, Gift.

Necklace: Gift.

Ring: F21, Gift.

Ring: Gift.

Bag: from JCPenney's, apx. $30.

Shoes: Bonniebell, $10.
