Fashion Friday: The Ghosts of NYE Dress Past

Hello there,

Today I thought it would be interesting to look back at the dresses I've worn for New Years Eve in the past few years. As there is now just over a month to go until the big night and I've started to look for this years dress, I thought I'd share a few of my old favourites from years gone by.

Please excuse my backdrop in these pictures, the whole house is currently being sorted out so this was the easiest place to picture the dresses.

Anyway, the dresses I have the past three years of New Years Dresses stored at the back of my wardrobe starting with New Years Eve 2011. This is the gold one shoulder dress. If my memory serves me correctly, this wasn't one of the most comfortable dresses I've worn, I think the sequins cut under my arm a bit and the dress forced me to wear a strapless bra, which when your boobs are bit on the larger size can get a little uncomfortable. I don't think I'd go for a one shoulder affair again.

Next to New Years Eve 2012, we have the Black Lace Dress with a Glitter Collar. This one was a favourite of mine. I was blogging by this point, so there is actually a post of me wearing this one, which I shall link HERE. This is one of my favourite dresses I've worn for a celebration like New Years, because it is rather simple but it has a brilliant accent in the collar detailing. I think I need to bring this dress out to play again soon.

Finally, we have last years dress. A dress like no other, nicknamed last year by the plus size community as the Mermaid dress. It is definitely one that I need to find another use of because it's too beautiful to sit at the back of my wardrobe. I managed to film myself last New Years Eve so I shall input the video link HERE.

I have just placed an order for what I hope will be my New Years Dress for this year so I can't wait to carry on the NYE glitter dresses collection.

What do you wear for New Years Eve? Have you got any plans?

Lots of Love,
