Que Bella – New Year’s Eve 2011

Happy New Year dear readers! I hope everyone had a safe and fun New Year’s celebration Saturday and Sunday. Thank you for all the lovely comments on my NYE post. I wish you all a fabulous 2012, full of passion, joy, love and shopping (a teeny bit for some of you from what I’ve been reading).

We had some great friends over for a small dinner party NYE. The meal was amazing. Husband cooked some fantastic steaks and everyone brought over some fantastic appetizers, sides and dessert (cheesecake!). We drank some champagne and played a little Wii Pictionary (so much fun!) to kill some time before heading out to a little club to ring in the new year. We had great fun in our little “VIP” section, as Husband made reservations for us so we could rest our dancing feet whenever we wanted.

The Boy did not go with us, of course. He was invited at the last minute (how’s noon on NYE) to a party at a friend’s house. So I had to manage prepping my part of dinner (baked tomatoes…yummy!), getting dressed for the evening and driving him to his friend’s a little early so I could make it back to welcome our guests. I arrived home the same time our guests arrived so it was all perfect timing.

Here’s what both The Boy and I wore for our evening.

On Me: J Crew Factory Sequin Tee, Dégradé Swing Skirt (8, Metallic Pumice), Babette Heels (ebay find)
On Gus: PetSmart Brown Leather Collar

This is quite a lovely little skirt. I like how the dégradé makes the skirt look sparkley without any sequins. The material also has a nice shimmery sheen to it too. I did change into nice flats before leaving the house so I could be comfortable dancing. I am so glad I did too!

Have a Great Evening everyone! TTYS!

    Audrey that boy is beyond precious! I cannot believe he is all tall and grown up! Perhaps I find it so shocking because it reminds me how much time has passed since I first saw him and, therefore, how OLD I have become! Anyway, you should be one proud Mama!
