This month the Ways to to Wear Challenge was Fabulously Festive and it was our job to interpret that the way we wanted to for the season. As I thought about this challenge, I knew my Christmas dress was very similar to my LBD and I wanted to do something a little bit different. So, I chose to use my New Years Outfit.

|I wish my pictures were better but, I just haven't been able to brave the bitter cold that has settled over us to take pictures outside. Sorry, guys.|
I bought this outfit way back in September to wear on New Year's Eve and I just want to say that I want to make a lifetime commitment to this shirt. I spent way more on it then I would normally pay for a sleeveless top but, it is just so beautiful I couldn't stop myself. The top is entirely beaded and sheer so, I feel very daring when I wear it. The whole top feels like luxury The beading looks like it's floating on the sheer material and because of the weight of the top it hangs perfectly. It was just right for the occasion even if I did have to give out emergency instructions to whole party on how to protect this top if things started to get messy.*
I went with a little bit of a female tuxedo look with the cropped tuxedo jacket and the belt was my version of a bow tie. I like the little androgynous touches to an otherwise girly outfit. Sheer, beading, lace, tulle, and polka dot tights should look crazy but it works well here with the toned down color story.

I really don't get out much. I'm a mom. What can you expect? But, I love taking full advantage of the few nights of the year that I don't have my children and this was a good night!
*That was my classy way of saying I'm a puker.
