My New Year's Eve outfit

My boyfriend and I went to a speakeasy-themed NYE party. For some reason the fact that it was themed escaped me until just a few hours before the party, so my outfit isn't as themed as I would have liked it to be. I have a dress that would have been perfect but I didn't have black tights or hose to wear with it; I decided I am not the type of person to brave 30 degree weather with bare legs for the sake of fashion or a theme (hence the pants even though woman really didn't start wearing pants until after prohibition).

I got my hat on clearance for $12 at Target the night before without the party in mind. The shoes I got for the super clearance price of $3!! Lucky for me someone bought the on-line only shoes in my size and returned them to a store.

This picture was taken after the party (hence the faded makeup and drooping hair). I didn't have time to take an outfit photo before the party because for some reason after over an hour in the dryer, my shirt was still wet and wrinkly.

The brooch belonged to my grandmother.

My jeans only look high-water because I was bending over to take photos of my own shoes, hah.


  1. Cuuuute hat! I glanced at the clearance hats at Target as I was quickly walking by them the other day. I may have to go back and take a closer look.

  2. Haha, I've totally taken the "post" instead of "pre" photos. I would never guess though -- you look awesome!

  3. I love that hat! Red is definitely my favorite! -Rachel (for the birds)
