Girls, if you’re anything like me, you’re always struggling to find something to wear. Ladies of Australia, I know you’re nodding your heads in agreement! That ‘nothing to wear’ phrase should have been my motto of 2017. I recently got rid of pretty much everything hanging from my walk-in wardrobe. Don’t worry I sold, donated to charity or passed it on to my friends – I couldn’t see clothes go to waste, after all. What kind of blogger would that make me!
Rebuilding a wardrobe is not easy – trust me. I find dressing for my shape a real struggle sometimes. Anyone else cancelled on plans because they can’t find anything to fit?! I knew I had to make some wardrobe changes, but more on that another time.
As we are well and truly past Chrissy now, it’s time to think about that all important NYE outfit. Priorities, ladies. My ultimate must have is an LBD, and as the saying goes you can never have enough little black dresses. I came across this stunning black midi dress from one of my favourite online retailers, Pretty Little Thing, and knew it had NYE potential.
How stunning is this dress? I am obsessed with anything off the shoulder. I’m in a love-hate relationship with my arms, so having the cold shoulder ruffles puts me at ease. Also, any dress with no zips gets a big YES from me – and it holds you in, so you can sneak in a few extra pre-drink nibbles and nobody will know! Winning!
This dress is perfect for a NYE party, drinks with the girls, upcoming wedding, birthday or any event – it’s just so versatile. Trust me, ladies: it’s totally okay to rewear clothing (even on social media). You go be an outfit repeater, girl! I salute you.
The black ruched cold shoulder Midi dress is my go-to to get me through the party season. Now I can feel as stunning as Olivia Culpo in this little show stopper.
I teamed up my look with a pair of hoop earrings and clear strappy stud heels. I like to call them my Valenti-not – you’re welcome.
See you in the New Year, girls. I hope you have a fabulous night.
