Hey all! Hope you had a great time ringing in the New Year.
I started NYE with some thrift-shopping or really, thrift-browsing. It was way packed at Goodwill and Salvation Army on NYE afternoon because of the last-minute sales and I didn't want to peruse for too long. I did find an awesome brooch that I'm going to have to debut this week.
Jeremiah and I had planned on a decidedly low-key night, but when his parents invited us over to their house to ring in the night in their new Irish-themed pub, we dressed up and headed that way.
Dress: Anne Taylor Loft, gift;
Tights, boots: Target;
Belt: Fossil, major sale.
Here's my little sis-in-law, Leah and I -- she looked super cute! Almost all of her outfit is from the Miley Cyrus/Max Azria line at Wal-Mart, which I keep hearing good things about on some blogs.
To be honest, I wasn't particularly thrilled with what I ended up wearing, but all my shiny/glittery options somehow didn't seem to work right, and my hair wasn't cooperating, so I ended up just throwing on my new LBD (why do I keep buying these? I have like 10 now) and headed out the door. It worked out ok, because the party was a little more casual anyways.
The rest of the night was quite fun -- Wii Sports (and making Harry Potter-themed Miis), cream soda, reading old Teen Vogues for style inspiration and singing "We Will Rock You" at the top of our lungs with the windows rolled down on the drive home.
For now I leave you with the Potter Puppet Pals, because almost all of us at the party had our own rousing edition of it -- I was Snape!
How'd you end up spending your New Year's? Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
