Welcome back Fashionlainers! I hope each of you got some much needed and well deserved R&R and are ready to go all out and full force into this new year. With a new year comes a lot of high expectations: “What will this year bring?”, “What do I want to change?” But the first trying test to making sure the new year was a success was what you were wearing when the clock stroke midnight. I mean, this is the first outfit you’ll be wearing into 2013, so you have to make it count. Right? There must be some kind of correlation between black and NYE because looking back, my outfits for the past 5 years have all been black. But when I was randomly browsing through Urban Outfitters’ website earlier this month, I came across this amazing skirt that had 2013 written all over it. And from there, everything else just fell into place for the perfect WHITE New Year’s Eve outfit. Pulling in a new take to the high-to-low skirt phenomenon with a sequin twist as well as throwing in some chunky cut out heels, an amazing American Apparel leotard, and a single gold star earring ended up making the perfect outfit to welcome the new year. I know we’ve already taken off into the January with one day of 2013 under our belt, but don’t forget about what you want to set to accomplish this year, stay focused, and make it happen!
