New Years Dress:

Greetings from California!

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I’m home for the holidays. I’ve got lots of boy updates for you starting next week, but in the meantime I’ve got to decide on a New Years outfit (especially because I might have a date!)

I found two pieces from (which is like a shopping mall that only carries plus size clothes). After trying these pieces on, I’m feeling like they would be so fun for New Years… its getting hard to choose!

I’ve been dreaming of finding a skirt made of feathers for a while now, so when I saw this dress with a feathered trim around it, I fell in love with it. I immediately saw myself in fishnets and a million strands of pearls to play up the 1940’s feel. I also thought I could pair it with my knee high boots to make it a bit more modern (and to keep my legs somewhat warm).

Last week I mentioned not wanting to look like a disco ball in a sequined dress, but OSP has a sequined skirt (via Avenue) that is adorable in black or grey.

The thing I like the most about his skirt is the little chime noise it makes when I move as the sequins touch each other. Its super glam! If any of you are thinking about ordering this, I’d suggest going a size up, it has a high waist and lots of lycra, so a size up helped me feel less…um… “lumpy”.

The only thing I don’t like about skirts is finding the right top to go with them. Dresses are easy since you’re covered in one swoosh. But I’m thinking about maybe wearing a white or black tank top and crazy accessories like a funky headband or chunky red necklace.

Help! How would you style this skirt?

  1. I think a black tank would be great, but I definitely recommend a long-ish necklace to draw the eyes toward the sparkly. No stockings, black heels. Definitely could also do a fun headband, too. Maybe with black feathers! Would love to see the end result!

  2. I went to the Avenue yesterday! Looking for something to wear to a semi formal Christmas gala. I saw this exact skirt and I decided to try it on. Prior to trying on I was skeptical about the length because I’m 6’0″. Now the skirt fit nicely but it was too short and being curvy on top of it didn’t help one bit. I agree the next size up makes a difference (in how it looked and felt) but I still had the issue with the length.
    Anyway, for the sequin dress. I think the white tank will look better. The chunky red necklace sounds stellar. Maybe some red pumps (no stockings), knee high or mid calf boots. 

    I also love your idea for the feathered dress. Sounds like a hot outfit. I wouldn’t change a thing.

    Oh, if the skirt worked for me. I was thinking of pairing it with a charcoal belted cardigan, white tank underneath and knee high or mid calf boots. Accessories would’ve been a pair of chandelier-esque earrings & maybe a sequin clutch. 

  3. I definitely love the skirt. It’s awesome. Because it’s so KABLAMY (in a good way, obviously) – I think the shirt would have to be pretty simple. I am not really a “style kind of girl”

    can’t wait to hear about the date!

  4. both options are great depending on the look you are going for the night, but i lean more towards separates. if i was wearing the sequin skirt i would go for a downtown look with a white v-neck tee to make it a little more casual, maybe pile a few chain like necklaces, black tights with black ankle boots. to make it a little more edgy and for added warmth throw on a black motorcycle style leather jacket.

  5. My style is a little bit more extreme, but I would wear this with a black one shoulder fitted top, The largest crystal solitaire earrings I could find. Maybe in a color to offset the monochrome look. And then I’d totally rock a fascinator with a lace veil that comes down over one eye.
