I literally went on a mission to get this dress. I saw it at Zara online and I knew that it would be perfect for me. Last week I went to 3 different Zara stores and none of them had the dress. I found something else at BEBE & bought it but I wasn't really happy with it. It was more for a club & I knew that I wouldn't really be comfortable wearing it at an apartment party. This one was more classy & I love that. So on friday, I decided to head out to the city and hit up 5th ave once again to double check the Zara stores there. The first one didn't have any, but the second one did! Just as I was about to give up, I spotted the last one on the racks in my size. It fit perfect and I know it was meant to be! I love finding the last one of something that I want. I always feel like it was waiting there for me. So I returned the BEBE dress and got to wear this one :)
I really love one sleeve dresses. This is a metallic silver lace dress with little hints of gold sparkle. The pictures don't even do it justice. I'm wearing my Shoedazzle pumps with rhinestones on the heels, chandelier earrings, 2 silver rings & one of my favorite bracelets. I put on MAC Russian Red lipstick and of course it made a huge difference. I have to say also that as much drinking, eating, & talking I did last night, this lipstick did not smudge or fade once. Pretty impressive.
This is my best friend Vanessa. She was the hostess last night. She wore a very pretty floral asymmetrical dress also from Zara. And these were the mango martinis she made!
I'm really looking forward to everything this year will bring me. I have a feeling it's going to be a good one. But I'm ready for whatever it brings, whether good or bad. I hope you all are too! They say that the way you start off the year is how it will end. Whatever happens, I know I will be in good company. xx Naty
