Currently Coveting #15: The Perfect New Year’s Eve Dress

New Year's Eve dress

A dense blanket of fog has covered our part of the world all day, making driving difficult and halting some flights in and out of London. It has been cold, damp, grey and miserable so I’ve cheered myself up by looking online for the perfect New Year’s Eve dress. I don’t actually know what we’re doing for New Year yet – we have been invited to a 1920s themed party, which sounds fun, but it’s grown-ups only and finding a babysitter is proving rather tricky…

Last year we had some friends and their children over for a three-course dinner and it was one of the best New Year’s Eves I’ve had for a long time (I’m almost ashamed to admit it but since having children I’ve been known to go to bed before midnight on December 31st…) But I think that even if you’re ringing in the new year in the comfort of your own home it is nice to dress up and wear something special. I would be more than happy to step into 2014 in any of these little numbers.

  1. I am loving the number one and number five. I have got one 1920’s party to attend too and perhaps another one of Great Gatsby themed. However I will only be recycling my little black dress as seen before in my “No passion for fashion’ post.

  2. 🙂 Those are beautiful. I like number 1 and 4 the best! That’s a great idea to dress up even if it’s a quiet evening staying home. I love New Year’s Eve but we never have anywhere to go, so I just cook something special and try to stay awake. Haha.
