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

Back to Basics, Part II

So, I'm officially terrible at keeping my New Year's Resolutions—which I'm bringing up in November because 1. I'm already starting to think about what my resolutions should be for next year; 2. It's November; and 3. I wanted to write this post about these awesome bras and saw that my last "Back to Basics" post was in January. #oops

So anyway, now that you know another one of my many faults, let's get back to the bras. These are from Base Range, made of 100% bamboo cotton and while they look silky, they're just silky soft. I love how they look super-functional yet low-key, and I see them as the perfect bra to wear under those bulky sweaters we all want to pile on in this chilly weather. Allow me to demonstrate:

An Outfit: Taking the Camisole Past the Bedroom

So, I get a lot of criticism (some of it not so direct, but I still get the gist of it nonetheless) for posting items that are expensive and "too luxe" for the average consumer. But isn't part of the fun of having a blog the fact that I can post whatever I want if I think it looks beautiful? I've never said that I've bought every piece on this blog, most of them are wishlist-y items that I admire or see potential in for a cool outfit, like this Kiki de Montparnasse Amour camisole.

Camisoles aren't really my thing for a few reasons, but mostly I just prefer the low-key option o' cotton. But I love this Kiki cami because I think it could make such a solidly cool outfit. It looks pretty plain from the front, but the back of it ties up to expose those super-toned back muscles you've been working on in yoga (I know what you've been up do, don't worry).
So voilà: three different outfit ideas for this camisole, courtesy of my boredom + Polyvore. Oh and also, yesterday marked my 6-year anniversary with NYC, and I'd like to think of these outfits as wish list wardrobes to celebrate my lovely little milestone with the best city in the world. xx

Pretty Little Everythings: Summer Weekend Wear

Another edition of "If I had an unlimited budget for my wardrobe", summer weekend edition. And the Stella McCartney long-line bra that has saved so many of my work-wardrobe lingerie dilemmas. Happy Friday, loves! xo

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.

Pretty Little Underthings' 1st Birthday Bash, Polyvore Style: Esther's Look
One last Polyvore set for you guys! This is my birthday bash outfit featuring my favorite mesh Only Hearts set. I love how sweet and low-key it looks, yet when it's on, it's amazingly sexy as all heck. Hope y'all have a lovely holiday weekend and have a drink for Pretty Little Underthings! xoxo

Happy 1 Year Anniversary, Pretty Little Underthings!

The Celebration Continues: La Fée Verte

Pretty Little Underthings' 1st Birthday Bash, Polyvore Style: Allison's Look
I love this Parisian chic inspired outfit by Allison! The silky number by La Fée Verte is a girly-perfect unnderpinning for such a badass-yet-feminine outfit. I'm giggling to myself because all of these boards perfectly reflect each of my friends' personal styles. Love it!

French Inspiration c'est chic.

The Celebration Continues: Jenna Leigh Lingerie

J'adore this board featuring the Jenna Leigh Malawi set by soon-to-be-wed friend Thayer. She has gorgeous taste—very classic with a contemporary twist that looks like she should be in magazine. Oh, and her engagement ring is incredible.

Happy 1 Year Anniversary, Pretty Little Underthings!


PRETTY LITTLE UNDERTHINGS.COM IS 1 YEAR OLD! Yippee! I'll be honest, I can't believe a whole year has already passed by, nor can I believe I'm still posting to this blog. It feels really special to have created something that so many people appreciate and love, and I'm really thankful to everyone who has supported me from the beginning through now, and hopefully will continue in the future.

So to help me celebrate, I asked a few of my amazing friends who all have very different personal styles to create their own look that incorporates their favorite lingerie of the moment. This first look is by my fantastic friend Janet, featuring the Jenna Leigh Kyoto Set. I laughed out loud when I saw this because really—this is EXACTLY her style. Thanks love! Keep an eye out for more sets to come.

An Outfit: The New (& More Fun) Bustier.

Bustiers need a lil' love. I think we've all become so accustomed to thinking of these as soon as we hear or read "bustier". But we should start thinking of ones like this Kiki de Montparnasse one, that we can lovingly wear as tops and make really, really fun outfits from! I'd love to wear this outfit this weekend—if only I had that bustier, Hurricane Irene be damned.

See the items on Polyvore.
