December 27, 2013 | By | Comments (0)

Christmas is over and 2013 is coming to a close. For me, that means one thing: it’s time to plan for the New Year’s Eve bash. Whether you plan to celebrate by watching the ball drop at home with loved ones, or you’re  painting the town red and covering it with confetti, here are a few finds that will help you step into the new year in style. Bring on 2014!

For a night on the town


  1. Feminine Cologne: Spritz on your favorite scent. Jo Malone’s Peony & Blush Suede has the perfect balance of some our favorite floral notes like peony, jasmine, and rose. $115
  2. Suede Booties: Choosing one in a suede fabric and dark color for a dressier look. The Belanie Booties by Nine West also has a platform for added height.  $83.30
  3. Rich Nail Color: A polish with a metalic finish, like Angela by Julep, feels festive for a holiday celebration. Choose a hue that compliments the colors of your outfit. $14
  4. Full Lashes: Create a dramatic look with bold lashes. Yves Saint Laurent’s Shocking Mascara will keep you looking party-ready through the wee hours, $30
  5. Beaded Skirt: Take advantage of the one holiday when sequins are a style staple and sport a mini skirt with a graphic pattern of beads and sequins like this one from Forever 21. $39.80
  6. Beauty Holiday Crackers: Jouer has put a new spin on the old tradition of holiday crackers by filling the cute containers with everything from hairties to lipgloss. $12/each
  7. Pintuck Blouse: A solid-colored long-sleeve blouse balances bold piece like a glamorous mini skirt. Subtle pintucks add tailored detail to this one by Michael Kors. $170

For a cozy night in
