Ordered The NYE Dress!!!!

I am getting this dress for NYE:

Yes, it is simple and not funky but I can glitz it up with accessories. I also have the necklace, clutch purse, and heeled boots to go with it.

It is jersey knit so won't kill me in over-heating as I go from crowded room to outdoors. It has ruching which I like because it adds some pattern to the dress. It has a bit of stretch to it which is also important to me. The best part? It only cost me $152.44 because Bluefly.com was having a HUGE sale today.

I just need to get some tights/hose with a bit of sparkle to them to match the clutch purse. I also need to decide on bracelet and rings for the outfit which I have PLENTY of already.

So, I am a little sad it isn't funkier but all the really cool funky dresses were way out of my price range. This dress has class and is form fitting which I wanted in a dress anyway. It is also dressy enough to go to parties in without being over the top in shiny or sequined stuff.

So NYE dress search mission accomplished!

Oh I love it! AND I love jersey as a material. I wore a black jersey dress this last week, that I made 10 years ago, and it still looks brand spanking new, and it's not for lack of wearing it. Not that that would be necessarily required for a dress, but I like them lasting long, as some of them look totally used after the first wash.

As for the style, I love the cut and length of the sleeves and hem, very quirky in a way. It's not usual style, but still classic. And you could wear a very impressive necklace if you wanted to. :) Good pick!

I like how it is classic, has slight quirkiness to it, and is dressy but not over-the-top dressy!

It is cut well, will last a long time, and WON'T wrinkle in a suitcase!

I am glad I found it even if it isn't as funky as my usual choices.

I know a necklace that would look great with that ;-)

Which one did you have in mind?

I am curious to see which one you would pair with it.

I hope you end up on the other side of the camera as well during new years, I'm dying to see it on you!
