Above: black ruched v-neck dress by Tadashi
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!
