New Year's Eve Party Outfits, 2013 Edition

It's been awhile, my dears. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving/Hanukkah and Christmases, and are getting to relax a bit before you all ring in 2014 with a bang! A little bit of vacation + browsing every online shop ever got me eager to a few New Years outfit ideas, seeing as how the ones from 2011 are getting a little bit of attention on Pinterest these past few weeks.

So here we are, a few lovely NYE outfit inspirations for you. xx

Lazy Sundays, Happy Weekend

Just a little comfy cotton inspiration for a lazy Sunday. Weekends are for freedom from underwire and clasps, at least in my world. Happy weekend.

BASErange available at Creatures of Comfort NYC, 205 Mulberry Street.

Milan Fashion Week: Lingerie Inspirations at Jil Sander F/W '12

Yep, it was Raf Simons' final collection for Jil Sander and it was pretty sweet, clean and full of lingerie inspired details that I loved. Bustier shapes, kimono robe silhouettes, bra-like keyholes in dresses—these were some of my favorites (and the coats are gorgeous. So gorgeous).

New Year's Eve Party Outfits Inspired by BRULEE

Happy holidays y'all! New Year's Eve is in a few short days and you know I can't resist an opportunity to play around on Polyvore. I used some of my favorite bodysuits from BRULEE Lingerie as a base for some party outfit ideas I love. I love bodysuits as outerwear. Brulee has a few with super-sexy details, whether it's mesh cutouts or lace-up backs, and NYE is the perfect time to rock some of these. For more information about each item, click through on the image to go to Polyvore.

I really love red and purple together. No, I'm not color blind. If you have any taste at all, you'd know that, oddly enough, these two bold colors harmonize really well (even evidenced in the earrings!). Sorry, didn't mean to sound so patronizing. But look at how classy that looks! And when worn with a neutral-yet-classy silver bodysuit, create a perfect party outfit—especially if you want all eyes on you, all night long. And I know you do.

This one's for the downtown girl, or the girl who lives in Midtown East with a downtown spirit and realistically knows that getting a cab on NYE will be impossible so she wants to avoid wearing heels at all costs and keep her legs warm. Yes, this one is probably my personal favorite. The bodysuit looks so demure from the front, but it's all party in the back. You'll want some Low Beams for this one (unless STN is your thing). I love the contrast of the neutral colors with the neon clutch too. Let's be real—throw on your favorite cardigan from your boyfriend's closet and you have the perfect weekend brunch outfit with this one. Versatility—that's my motto. You're welcome.

Bringing real meaning to the phrase "shake ya tailfeather". I avoided sequins in this post on purpose. They'll snag on other people's clothes and after your sequins snag that girl's silk Lanvin dress (let's be serious, it's probably from H&M but still she's mad and is about to dump her vodka & cranberry all over your perfect blowout) the partay will be kind of over. But feathers! They might shed and tickle a little but that's okay. You can pick out feathers from people's drinks—no harm, no fowl. Haha get it? Fowl. But anyway, this mint green + black bodysuit is just asking for a peacock setup. Strut your stuff and show 'em what you're working with.

Lingerie Inspirations at Morgan Carper's S/S 2012 Presentation

First off, HAPPY PEPERO DAY! If you don't know what Pepero is, hasten to your nearest bodega or Asian grocer and pick up these tasty chocolate-covered sesame sticks (or read this Wikipedia entry). You'll notice that I posted this at 11:11am today.

Sooo... I've been holding onto these photos since Morgan Carper's gorgeous S/S 2012 presentation a few months ago, mostly because they were so pretty and I didn't want to share. I know, I know, bad blogger. *hand smack*

I had never seen Morgan Carper's pieces in person, and I really loved the movement of some of her looks, like the leather-trimmed fringe skirt in the first photo, and the way the white dress in center of the second photo drapes and flows. I also got so much inspiration for styling intimates as ready-to-wear after this, so thank you *hat tip*

Hope y'all enjoy these few photos before you start your weekend. Have an amazing one! xoxo
