Although I was in NYC over new years, new years eve itself was a complete bust (bad club, bad crowd, bad vibes) if there is somewhere that needs to be avoided in New York, its club Pacha. I won't go into the details, but in a nutshell new years eve was a huge let down.
I guess the silver lining was that, while only for a short time, I got to wear one of the most amazing dresses I've ever owned. Unfortunately it didn't get much of an outing, and I hardly got any decent photos of it when I did wear it so I threw it on again for some quick snaps to share on here. It set me back a small fortune (£180..then went into the sale garghhh) but I don't ever spend silly money on dresses, and this one seemed totally worth it. For a start, it is ridiculously heavy and the detail is incredible, compared to all other sequin dresses I've seen on the high street it is very high quality. Even though every time I try it on some of the beads fall off, I think it will look even better when its slighty battered.
I wore it with minimal make-up and heeled ankle boots because I didn't want to look too glamourous- I spent the other 364 days of 2012 wearing black or jeans so this was pretty intense for me. The result: backless, nude, sequins and glitter....I felt like 'effin J-LO.
