It happens to us every year. The eternal dilemma. What ever are we going to do on New Years Eve!? Our inner glamourpusses are always tugging at our sequined sleeves begging us to hit the town in our glitter and sparkles and poppers and champagne toppers while our inner homebodies think that a quiet evening in with a great playlist and an even better companion sounds like just. the. thing. We can never decide and usually we end up just waiting until the last minute, seeing what we feel like wearing, and let our evenings progress from there. Whether you’re gearing up for Times Square or winding down the last moments of this year with dear intimates, here are our midnight-ready picks for a perfect New Years kiss.
If you want to wait for midnight at an impeccably lit (read: dark) underground downtown cocktail-den we think that Fleur du Mal’s leather triangle bra (and Gossard’s hipster Glossies short) would be the exact right complement to your pigmy gimlet.
If an intimate dinner party is more your scene (and it’s one of our favorite scenes), make sure that the champagne and conversation aren’t the only thing that sparkle in the glittery-festive-gorgeous sparkles of Princesse Tam Tam’s Folie.
Sometimes the most intimate of parties are the absolute sweetest, the kind of New Years celebration where you don’t even realize it’s struck midnight because, well, you were busy. We’ll cheers to that (and did we mention that the Only Hearts Whisper Teddy looks fantastic by firelight?).
And if you do decide to ring in 2014 in the middle of a very-blustery-Times Square, remember: layers. We recommend starting with the red hot Eyelash Chemise from Elle Macpherson. Though we have to admit, you might not make it out of the apartment. And maybe that’s a good thing.
However you decide to celebrate, we hope you have a magical night and a wonderful start to 2014.
