Three days until one of the most glamourous holidays of the year! NYE has always been one of my favorites, and I can remember staying up to see the ball drop as a little girl. Now, the holiday is even better since it consists of dressing up, loud make-up, sequins and tons of sparkle. It is a night to break out the sequins and leave the tights at home (unless your dress is strapless and Taylor Momsen no-pants-short). I personally love a long sleeved body con silhouette and high high heels, less Kim Kardashion, more Nicole Richie. Also, leave the satin at home. Remember when the Pi Phi chapter at Cornell sent out the rules for recruitment? And I quote, "No one looks good in satin unless it is from Betsey Johnson or Dolce and Gabbana, you weigh less than 130 lbs, have three pairs of spanks on and it's New Years Eve". Sister President is right, so go more Herve Leger this year! Don't forget shimmery accessories, smokey eyes and great gloss, because everyone deserves a midnight kiss!
May all your pains be champagnes in 2011
