My tip for your fabulous New Years Eve Party? Run out to the dollar store and get some disco balls and strings of beads, then bling out your chandelier like the picture above. It adds instant glamor and sparkle!
And of course, look fabulous yourself. End 2011 by looking and feeling your best, no matter what you're doing.
This is the dress that my boyfriend got me for Christmas, and I know he can't wait to see me wear it! New Years Eve offers up the perrrrfect opportunity to get a little dolled up. I'm pairing it with the necklace he got for me, and some black alligator pumps (a la Breakfast at Tiffany's: "Be a Darling and look under the bed for a pair of alligator shoes"-Holly Golightly). I'll post some pictures tomorrow!
What are your NYE party decorating tips and what are YOU wearing?
I'd love to know!

Before you fall completely head over heels in love with this furniture piece (maybe I should have cautioned earlier), I should warn you that it is pricey! In 1956, it retailed at a bit over 300 dollars. Now, a newly constructed Eames Lounge will run you about $4500 before tax in the United States, with some classics selling in auction for close to the $7000 mark! Even high quality and convincing replicas approach two grand. The European Vitra version is even more expensive. But hey, we can dream right? If you’re ever blessed enough to purchase one of these beauties, however, the attention to detail and high quality, hand crafted construction will last decades making it an heirloom to be passed on from generation to generation.
|At the Friends with Benefits movie premiere in July 2011, the always fashionable Olivia Palermo donned this ultra sheer white blouse with a maxi printed skirt. The sheer blouse has become a major trend for many celebrities.|
|Dynamite offered the look for less with this sheer white blouse for under $30. When I bought mine, they only had a size Small when I usually wear an Extra Small, but the loose look works! (It looks less sheer when it's on)|
|Anybody out there a fan of Gossip Girl? I am, and I loved the character Charlie Rhodes in this gold, sparkly sweater. Unfortunately, it's a bit out of the budget. Alice + Olivia Crewneck Rhinestone Sweater for $330|
|Although not an exact match, this sequined sweater from Dynamite achieves the same look and vibe for only $18! It was the perfect sweater for the holidays, but isn't too festive so it can be worn year round. Money well spent.|
Love always, Tiffany Leigh
I'll be the first to admit that I'm a bit of a skeptic when it comes to New Years Resolutions. For the first few days, everyone approaches their resolutions with gusto and eagerness, but before long, real life resumes post-holidays and those good intentions fade into 'maybe next years'. 2012, however, is going to be a BIG, huge, lifechanging year for me.
1) I'm moving out of my parents' house
2) I'm starting a new educational path
3) I will be going to school with future designers in Toronto
These things all lead me to think that something has got to change in order to accommodate all of these grown up changes. My resolution: Look the part.
Something you should all know about me, I LOVE sweatpants, more than I probably should. This is not to say that I wear them all of the time, but I am definitely one of those students who rolls out of bed, throws on some sweats and shows up in class looking lazy (I should note that I am NOT actually lazy at school, just averaged a 91% this semester eeee). As an undergrad at a predominantly 'farming' university and having to drive forty five minutes just to arrive on campus, however, I've felt somewhat entitled to take advantage of the sweat pant luxury while I still can.
|By the way, If you happen to be in the market for an amazing pair of sweatpants, I pretty much live in my Roots Original Pocket Sweats in Salt and Pepper. Cute, comfy and excellent quality. Available at http://canada.roots.com|
BUT, I know that in Toronto, sweats everyday just won't cut it. Especially considering I will be attending a SMALL school where everyone I run into may play a potential role in my future career. Gotta represent myself right. Besides, I've got a lot of nice clothes that don't get worn nearly enough.
Thus, its time to start dressing more professionally, more often. Start putting my best foot forward to make those good first impressions, and look the part of a successful interior designer. It's never too early to start!
What's YOUR resolution? I'd love to hear :)
