NYE 2010

Thanks to the exciting recent discovery that Ted Baker - a London-based brand - opened a store here in Chicago, my New Year's Eve getup is decided. I purchased this flirty, ruffled black minidress for half-off and will accessorize with items I already own to complete the look. The gold mesh clutch shown here is not the exact one I have, but it's similar. I bought mine from Express for a measly $5 years ago, and it's gotten me through many nights when my all-black ensembles needed that something extra. I'm heading out shortly to get my nails done, and I think the light pink of Essie's Sugar Daddy will soften the otherwise bold black and gold outfit. Want to know a secret? I haven't had a manicure since my friend's wedding in August. It's long overdue, and I am excited.

1. Ted Baker Neuva dress | 2. Gold mesh clutch | 3. Nine West black leather pump | 4. Kate Spade single ball earrings | 5. Essie Sugar Daddy nail polish

I won't be writing again until after the weekend, so I hope you all have a super fun holiday, and Happy New Year!
