New Year Glow :: The Little Black Dress

December 31, 2013


Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! It’s amazing how fast this year has flown by. Just four months ago, I was on my honeymoon and wondering whether or not I should start a fashion blog. My husband and I had just bought a DSLR for the trip, and neither of us really knew how to work the camera well. With our joint effort came to life, and we can’t thank you all enough for your support and suggestions to help us grow.

Ending our final post of the year in a black & red note, I’m wearing a strapless little black dress paired with a suede Michael Kors clutch and Halogen heels. Wishing you all a wonderful and fabulous new year!

Also, congratulations to our winners of the Scarf Giveaway sponsored by Kee’s Baby Love – Hanna B, Petra L, Mio P! If you’re interested in purchasing, Kee’s Baby Love is currently running a limited-time holiday Buy 1 Get 1 Free special, use code NEWYEAR at checkout.

    My feet just made it to the easy find size 6.5 or 36 European size. When I was working in strata management I didn’t really have time to shop so one day i came home with 6 pairs of shoes!!! Thought I’d save myself time . You know if you work hard, you should reward yourself right?? Lol. I’m petite too so chunky shoes look ridiculous on me. Thanks for representing!!


      I know you what mean Van! It’s a little dangerous when you have a “shoe drought” and then all of the sudden you find a bunch of cute ones that come in your size. I only have a few weaknesses, and heels are one of them, haha.


    Aww how come Van? You have petite feet like me?
