Black on Black for New Year’s – What I wore

IMG_0262When I initially set off to find a New Year’s outfit I had my sights set on something shiny.  But after a quick trip to the mall and my time running short I decided to visit my closet to see what I could put together that was New Year’s worthy.  If it wasn’t’ sparkly at least it could have some shine and so the hunt began.  Although some sparkle is a great way to kick off a celebration of a New Year’s there are other options that are equally festive.  Black Satin is a great direction to go in when you are looking to dress up.   When done right black always makes a statement and the shine adds a dimension of elegance and steps away from the ordinary.  I started with the focus on the bottom as my eyes first settled on this pencil skirt with lace up detailing in the back.  The fabric manages to provide enough give to make sure the skirt hugs every curve and the bunching works to both accentuate those curves but also provide some forgiveness in problem areas like the waist.  The lace up detailing in the back not only gives a great flash back to glamour days of the past it also gives some additional options to make sure the dress fits just the way you want by tightening and loosening the strings as needed.
