out of the closet: Cheers to 2012! The NYE Dress

  1. Faux fur coat: Halston Heritage (purchased last month from THE OUTNET )
  2. Dress: Rachel Roy
  3. Shoes: Casadei  (Black Friday score from endless.com)
  4. Clutch: Topshop (from 2 years ago)

I saw this dress last summer, and I knew this was going to be my New Year’s eve dress. For some reason, I gravitate towards  jewel tones like this sapphire blue for the evening. And also, I’m trying my VERY best not to wear black all the time.

I think a deep blue color like this is flattering to most women and a very classic piece for any season. It is so versatile, that I’m considering wearing this for my nephew’s wedding in the spring.

l am loving this faux-fur coat. It has deep pockets and that sold the deal for me. My cold hands always need to park somewhere. I think it gave texture and dimension to the outfit but my only regret is that it took up way too much space in my carry-on bag that I didn’t  really have enough space for shopping 😦

The shoes at 5 1/2 inches, killed me. A necessary evil, since I wasn’t genetically blessed in the height department. So I really just sat most of the night.

My favorite part of this outfit is the sequined clutch. It’s feather-light, it’s got enough room for all my stuff and the best thing about it, I scored it on clearance for $5!

My husband and I attended a gala dinner at the Raffles Hotel in Dubai for New Year’s eve. We had a perfect view of the spectacular fireworks display at Dubai’s famous Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraper. We took this photo from the terrace of our hotel bar.
