"Accomplishments don't erase shame, hatred, cruelty, silence, ignorance, discrimination, low self esteem or immorality. It covers it up with a creative version of pride and ego. Only restitution, forgiving yourself and others, compassion, repentance and living with dignity will ever erase the past". - Shannon L. Alder


Hello everyone and a wonderful yuletide season to you all. I think we can all attest that 2016 started with a bang and it's about to end with a bang. And we wouldn't let that bang happen without the blogosphere coming alive with outfit ideas of New year's eve parties , dates, etc.

Now I have a confession to make, while I was putting on this dress, I had bought it about 6months ago and believe me I was a hellova lot slimmer than what you see here. I was in high heavens for that little weight loss that I'd achieved so effortlessly, flash back to today, the dress seemed a little to tight while I look like a pregnant blob (which I'm hoping is the case to explain away this weight gain).Wishful thinking 😋

Back to my reality, so my hubby decided that we'll be going out for new year's eve dinner 'ensemble' and my dears this cold isn't just funny. Christmas weather was so beautiful and I could actually go out without my coat, but at -6° here, how we go come take do this one (pidgin English for how are going to get through it). Well as I see it now, until that day, if not romantic dinner could as well be served in the house or isn't that an option.

For this special day that many things will happen 😋,  I decided to go with this dusty pink flayed gathered dress, and this is one colour that has got my attention this fashion season. To umph add lots of shine and glamour to the look, i recreated the neckline of this dress, with beautiful crystal beads so I don't have to bother with jewelry as the neckline is already busy. Going in with this gorgeous buckle high heel shoes of the same colour by Dorothy Perkins and gorgeous mauve coloured coat gifted by my hubby. ( Wo this new year is starting out marvellously.)

I accessorised with my Fossil wristwatch since forever, glitter eyes of pink and mustard yellow and amethyst ring to make the whole dress pop. Read about what I said about nudes and pale colours here.

And finally spotting a new hair for this glorious occasion is a wig I dared to make myself. How'd I do ? 😊.

So what's your New year's / NYE outfit idea like ? And on a final note here's wishing you all a most wonderful and prosperous New Year 2017.
