TIPS ON STYLING A NEW YEARS EVE SPARKLY HALTER DRESS

Want to dress up for NYE but don’t want to be the basic bee in the sparkly dress? I feel you.

The juxtaposition between something sweet and something tough keeps the look cool and less contrived for NYE.

Ring in the New Year in a gorgeous fringe get up! I fell in love with this ’20s number the second I laid eyes on it, and I knew it was the perfect party frock for NYE.

While I couldn’t locate this exact jacket for you guys, I selected a few of my other pink favorites that are for sale below. read more
