NewYear, New You, New DRESS!

Ah, a new year is upon us.  Its time to cast off the melancholy mishaps of such an unlucky year. 2013... ugh!  I still get the shivers every time I write the luckless number.  But a shiny new day is just on the horizon.  A chance to start a new life!  Turn over a new leaf!  Give birth to a new you!  And how will you launch such a grand feat?  In a new dress of course!

Holiday color trends are simple this season:  Neutrals, cool blues, and warm reds with cool undertones.

The key to pulling off this somewhat lackluster palette is through texture, prints, sequins, and metallics.  I put together some looks to give you some ideas of how to pull off a picture perfect NYE 2014!  Some of the ensembles might be a little pricey, but as always, your local shops, boutiques, and webbies will typically have similar affordable pieces.  Use your Bargainista know-how to improvise!
