Five Ways to Shimmer on New Years! (On a budget!!!)

I adore these sequin shorts from Forever21! They would be great paired with black tights, booties, and a flowing shirt that can be tucked in. Pair with a fitted blazer, and you are ready to ring in the New Year!

Sparkling Sequin Shorts from Forever21 for $22.80

Pair a super cute sequin tank like this one from Ann Taylor LOFT with black jeans or suede leggings. Remember to keep the rest of the outfit simple!
Sequin Shell from Ann Taylor LOFT $49.99
If you don't feel like being covered in bling while ringing in the New Year, try this low key velvet dress from ArdenB with small sequin detail on the shoulder. I love the warm pairing of velvet and with the gold sequin detail. This is a very sleek and sexy look for the always classy party girl.
One Shoulder Velvet Dress from ArdenB only $27.50
Wanting to hide your bling a little? Try putting it in your hair. This is a great hair piece from Forever21 and can be used with both short and long hair.

Forever21 Vintage Sequin Headwrap only $3.80
Last but certainly not least is the handbag. Metallic is the way to go on a New Years hand bag. I found this adorable little one at ArdenB!

Metallic Frame Clutch from ArdenB for $39.00

Hope Everyone Shimmers for New Year!


Updating Your LBD

No time to shop? Look in your own closet! Most of us have our go to LBD (or Little Black Dress) that has saved us NUMEROUS times.  Wearing the same LBD to numerous parties will make other party-goers wander, "Does she own more than one dress?"

Below are my suggestion for "making over" you treasured LBD!

Velvet Blazer or Any Blazer for that MATTER
GAP $89.00
Velvet is always a popular fabric during the holidays and can turn a plain black dress in something warm, sultry, and uber chic! On a budget? Look at stores such as Forever21, H&M, Gap, or Arden B.


Statement Jewelry

The goal of making over your LBD is to take the attention AWAY from your dress but still keep it on you. Statement Jewelry is an amazingly easy way to do this and is probably hidden in your jewelry box.

For my wedding my mother-in-law gave me a necklace with an ancient Roman coin. This is my classic statement jewelry piece. Every time I wear it, others are intrigued by it and ask what exactly is around my neck. Takes the attention off the dress I'm wearing even if they have seen in on me more than once.

Inherit your grandma's old jewelry? This is a great way to use it! Don't have or know what statement jewelry? Look at stores like LOU LOU's in DuPont Circle or Channel HSN.

Killer Pumps

The first thing I look at on any woman is her shoes and handbag. Yup that's right you could be wearing a brown paper bag but if I love your shoes, I am sure to compliment you on them!

When looking for shoes for your LBD find what I call "statement shoes." Websites like Endless or stores like DSW and Steve Madden are perfect! My go to statement shoes are my red high heels.

About Me & ChicDC

Growing up I loved two things...FASHION and ORGANIZING. At 19, much to my parents dismay, I set my sights on New York City and moved there to attended the Laboratory Institute of Merchandising. Taking in every moment of crazy New York, I volunteered at fashion week, accepted internships with several showrooms, and later graduated with a degree in Fashion Marketing.

Now back in DC my mission is to make style attainable! I work with every body type and every budget to create a style that fits YOUR life. With seasonal and/or yearly closet audits, together we go through the process of (1) organizing, (2) seeing what flatters your body, (3) what needs to go, and finally (4) what your closets lacking.
