Looking for a perfect New Year’s Eve dress is like searching for the meaning in a Pauly Shore movie. Jokes aside, the struggle is real! I’ve never been a huge fan of New Years for some reason, up until last year. It was a holiday that always kind of fell short for me, and I didn’t like to make a big fuss about it. We spent 2014 eve in Napa with 5 other couples and had the best time ever. We had plans to re-create that weekend but decided to switch things up and ski instead. Lucky for me we spent this past weekend in Tahoe, so I could get some practice time!
We’re heading to Colorado the week after Christmas, and I’m already counting down the days until I’m on the mountain again. It’ll be so fun to spend a week in the snow and celebrate the new year a little differently. So now I just need to figure out how to pack for Arizona + Colorado in one suitcase…and I still need to find a New Years Eve dress!
I am a serious procrastinator when it comes to buying dresses for special occasions. It’s more likely than not that I either re-wear, or scramble last minute for wedding weekends, holiday events- really, anything where cocktail attire is required. It’s not my strong-suit, but on the bright side: my lack of dress options inspired this post! A lighthearted intervention to yours truly, because I need to get better at this. If you’re having trouble like me, I found a few ideas below! I always love looking at Shopbop (an always favorite/they partnered with Amazon Prime, which makes life easy), Revolve Clothing, and ASOS. I hope you have a wonderful holiday week!
