While I chose to stay at home and celebrate the New Year this time, that doesn’t mean that I didn’t indulge in some serious partying around that time. More than anything I had to celebrate this dress I had picked up from ASOS some time back. It’s not everyday that I wear a dress and certainly not one with only sequins all over it. This dress deserved a party.
But before the dress comes the makeup. A good cover up with dark lips and strong eyes is the easiest makeup I know and it is completely evergreen.
And ta-da! In my shiny shiny dress
Calling up friends who are ALWAYS late. Making sure they’re atleast on their way.
This dress is my absolute favourite, probably something to do with the festive season that just won’t end. Shiny happy people and parties around town, lights, flashing camera phones everywhere, gifts and an overdose of desserts and alcohol. What’s there to not like eh! The berry sequins aren’t completely blingy like silver or gold ones and yet its totally disco-ready.
A few party ready essentials on my list are a cute elegant clutch with some lovely embellishments, a universal Chanel pink lipstick and a dramatic eyeshadow, a tiny perfume bottle, statement earrings, and a classic wristwatch. I chose to wear lots and lots of rings with this dress.
A regular ritual has always been taking a selfie with all the makeup and fresh eyes before the people start coming in, the alcohol starts hitting the body and you look nothing like the gorgeous lady you started out with being. Be it a selfie with a camera or your cellphone.
