New Years Eve: Snippet of a Snapshot!

Sooooo, I downloaded my NYE pics from my camera onto the netbook and subsequently deleted the pics from the camera. And then the netbook died. So I figured my opportunity for an outfit post had been dashed until my technology crisis was over.... until I discovered that my sister had pics of NYE on her camera! Yea for overzealous photographers in the family!

Anyway, it was a fun night that started with a quiet dinner at home with the Bf, after which we met up with my sister and her entourage (not really, it only seems that way) at Prime Bar, a venue with three bars (no crowds to battle for drinks!), which featured a live band and lots of balloons everywhere.

I only have one picture of the outfit and, yes, I decided to crop the BF out of the frame because A- he doesn't like his picture plastered everywhere and B- if he wants everyone to see his cute style he should get his own blog, right!?! ;)

F21 jacket (seen here); Haute Hippie dress; Spanx Tight-End Tights; Steve Madden pumps (seen here); vintage earrings

Well, you can't see the shoes, but c'est la vie. Some things worked well with this outfit, like the tights and some things did not work so well, like my shoes (I was doing some awkward teetering/limping when we left, but let everyone think it was the booze!). Also, I just want to note that if you have never tried Spanx tights, they are awesome. I am not talking about flab-alanche control in this case, but in opaqueness. These tights aren't cheap, but they are super dark and super comfy! (I don't work for Spanx, just sayin')...

...I will add more pictures in once the Bermuda Triangle of technology is exorcised from this house and things start working normally again ;)
