New Year’s Dresses Fit for a Czarina

Spoiler alert (a month later): Serena goes for a gold Georges Chakra and Dan cuts his hair. WTF, Dan is Gossip Girl?!!

OMFG! What happened to us? A crazy work schedule and a full social calendar in December.  It’s my fault.  But I promise, I will return with more frequent posts filled with witty repartee.  Of late, I am extra obsessed with party frocks.  Confession:  When I find a really great dress, I let the devil on my shoulder win, take it home and store it lovingly in a garment bag, deep in my armoire.  Stocking up, just in case.  If there’s an Armageddon, I’ll be reallyx3 well dressed.

Nina Garcia, the lovely fashion editor of ELLE says via her Twitter:  “New Year’s Eve is the one occasion when your little black cocktail dress should not be your fallback choice. BE CREATIVE!” Note her use of all caps for emphasis.  Trust Nina.  She’s an arbiter of taste.  Well dearies, I agree.  Why not take a cue from the Russian clique taking over Fashion Week?  Look no further than the group of up and coming czarinas with risk-taking style and piles of their husbands’ money to burn.  Just go opulent + baroque + load it up with jewels and then multiply MOREx3

You can tell people you are channelling Vogue Russia for New Year’s Eve.

Two of my favourite things: sequin & tulle in my favourite hue/drink - champagne. Aidan Mattox Sequin Tulle Dress

I am very particular about full sequin dresses. This gold number from French Connection is perfection!

Love the silver zig-zags and ruche detailed hem on this sexy Parker shift dress. Yeow!
