There’s always a lot of pressure to find the perfect outfit to wear on New Year’s Eve. I tried on many sparkly and sequined options, but none of them were a hit for me. Then I veered off in a completely different direction with this mint green lace minidress. I absolutely love the color and although it’s far too short for me to wear to work, I can see myself wearing this again for a party or an event.

I was also thrilled to have my friend Wambura visiting the city for NYE. She looked fantastic in her sparkly black peplum top and sleek back pants (I especially loved the studded detail on the pockets). In the last photo we of course had to snap a quick roommate picture since Kiet was looking rather dapper as well.

Tell me: What did you wear on New Year’s Eve?

  • Looking gorge, love the lace dress

    • Thanks so much Heather! I knew I wanted to wear this necklace so I kind of kept that in mind while I was shopping :)

  • Love this dress! It’s not the typical NYE outfit but you still got some sparkle in there ;)

    • Thanks Kim! Haha, yes, had to throw a little sparkle in! :)

  • Definitely a fresh look for NYE! Glad you had a good one. I just stayed in, as per usual.

  • Jessica

    I love your mint lace dress. It is unexpected but I think that makes it even better. And I love your friend’s peplum top.

    • Thank you Tracy! And I love my friend’s peplum top too- I totally want to steal it from her! ;)

  • You look so fancy! I have stopped in Forever 21 recently but didn’t really shop. I need a shopping day there soon!

    • When I bought this dress I hadn’t been to a Forever 21 in months and the one in my hometown is huge, so I think I spent a grand total of about 4 hours in there! There were having a major sale though so I walked away with a lot of good deals :)
