Friday's Fancies - New Year's Eve

For this edition of Friday’s Fancies, the theme is New Year’s Eve – totally appropriate given that we will ring in the new year this weekend (isn’t it crazy how quickly time flies? I swear, I still think we’re in 2010 and it’s almost 2012!!)

While every year Esposito and I vow to do something fun and extravagant for New Year’s, it never fails that once we start putting a plan together things fall apart. Either the options are totally out of our budget (it is still on my bucket list to celebrate a New Year’s Eve in Atlantic City at least once!), none of our friends want to join in, or in general we can’t make up our minds about what to do. This year is no different – though we started with high hopes of actually going somewhere for New Year's, we ended up not making plans at all. Instead, we will most likely be ringing in the New Year in NYC – watching the ball drop in Times Square and then spending some time with my sister and her friends at a small bash she’s throwing in her apartment.

Since spending New Year’s Eve in Times Square requires warm and comfy clothing, my outfit options are limited – as much as I’d love to throw on a pair of sparkly heels and a cute dress, that just wouldn’t be appropriate for the planned festivities of the night. So I’m styling this New Year’s Eve Friday’s Fancies with a look that I’d love to wear to watch the ball drop in NYC – comfortable and cozy since we’ll be standing outside for hours, with a touch of glam. I’m going to try to see if I can finagle something similar to wear from what I already have in my closet!

Note - that sliver of red you see above is one of our New Year's traditions. My grandmother always said you should ring in the New Year wearing red underwear for good luck! We also eat 12 grapes when the clock strikes twelve!

What do you all have planned for New Year’s?  What will you be wearing?

NYC sounds like a pretty fun way to ring in the New Year! We always head over to a friends for Brinner (breakfast for dinner) I eat my weight in shrimp and grits! I'll be wearing elastic pants for sure!!!! Happy New Year!...-Ann

That coat is fabulous! I'll be in Chicago for NYE but would love to make it to NYC one of these years.
