Need Your Help: What to Wear on New Year's Eve

I was really sure about what to wear on New Year's Eve... until I hung out with my friend Lindsay last night and saw all her cute attire options. (I will post about that in a bit... we had a great time playing dress up!)

So now I need your help! The party attire is "cocktail," though I'm sure attendees' outfits will run the gamut of casual to formal.

Option 1: Cream/iridescent sequined halter (bought this in the formal department of Dillards in high school and have never found a good reason or way to wear it, until now) with a black pencil skirt.

Option 2: Deep purple, velvet vintage dress (from my October visit to My Sister's Closet), accessorized with a flower brooch (from Hurs) and satin ribbon at the waist. I love the dress but feel that it would look a lot better if I had the top taken in a little to fit better. Should I save this dress until after I make alterations?

Which of the below two outfits should I don to ring in the new year? I'm perplexed! (Leave a comment, or vote in the poll to the right of this post.)

And for you Decaturites who don't yet have plans, e-mail me at and I'll tell you the details of a little shin-dig we're putting together.

Wishing you all happy and safe New Year's Eves and fabulous starts to 2010,

As of 10pm on New Year's Eve eve, the combined votes (the poll, comments and e-mails from friends and colleagues) are...

Option 1: 12
Option 2: 6

This may not be a close call afterall!

I'm going with option number 2! I think they are both nice, but number 2 is very flattering!!!

Thanks, C! That's helpful!

What are your plans for NYE? :)

Greg Cordell said...

I vote on number two!

It was great to see you yesterday, glad you girls had fun playing dress up! You and Dan are always welcome over for dinner, we need to hit Flip SOON, b/c it is awesome.

See you tomorrow!

Thanks, Greg! I'm wondering if this voting will even help, as it appears the vote is about tied now!

Happy New Year to you and Dan!
