Concrete Catwalk // New Year's Eve

IMG_7076.jpg

What is it about New Year's Eve that makes us feel compelled to get all dolled up?  The word glamorous is definitely not one that comes to mind when I think about describing my own personal style, but I DO love putting together a good costume now and again!I was pretty excited to get dressed up for the Great-Gatsby-themed party that we went to on NYE, and although I don't think my outfit qualified as being literarily accurate, I did love the sparkle and bold use of color.  Plus, I added one of Gerard's grandmothers vintage hats at the last minute, and I think that gave the whole look some extra points. ;)  Kept the accessories simple overall (love my new glittery clutch from Truvow), because I didn't want the look to seem too cluttered.P.S. Do you remember the dress from when I wore it this past summer?  Styled a little differently, but I still love it!  Can you believe it used to be a size-22 blouse?And of course, here are a few snaps from the evening, courtesy of our dear hostess with the mostess and my instagram feed (Feel free to follow along - I'm @styleandpepper!).

 Cheers to the New Year!
 I couldn't help but include this one... give us a dance floor, and we'll give you some serious moves. ;)
