I couldn’t help myself.  I had a perfectly festive black sequin skirt all laid out for NYE.  I just needed to find a perfectly festive top to pair with it.  Then I saw this Parker Sequin Dress at Thera M (one of my favorite local boutiques).

The look on my husband’s face when I tried it on was all I needed to throw all responsibility out the window.  It was their last one, it fit like a glove, the ruched sleeves concealed my winter white arms, and I had to act fast (Lilly was about to hit meltdown mode). 

Poor sequin skirt.  She really is fabulous.  Maybe I’ll wear her on a ladies night out or Valentines day.

Now, if only I could find a feather stole…

    YES I love it! The shape of the hemline is so pretty, and I adore the dark sequins — if this dress is any indication, your NYE will be fantastic.

    This is awesome! I had to retire my sparkly jacket as I wore it way TOO much during the holidays. I purchased a purple taffeta mini for tomorrow night instead but need to find a way to add some sparkle!

    On another note, this is my first time visiting your blog – love it!
