It’s the eve of the Christmas holiday weekend, but we’re also just about a week away from a night of champagne, pretty dresses and lots of dancing. Are you staying in and going all out? Or, are you thinking more of an intimate night in? Or, something cozy that involves hot cocoa with peppermint shnapps and some netlfix? I am not sure what I am doing yet but at the very least I know that I love to dress up and NYE gives that opportunity to be a little or very EXTRA!

If there’s any time of the year that you really get to be EXTRA and can get away with a little more skin without looking too scandalous it’s the holiday season moving into NYE. I chose this star maxi dress because I loved the star glitter pattern and really loved the mesh. There was a lot of debate as to whether this dress was over the top and too much to wear out. I brought it out when I got home and my roommate immediately said YES!  I am completely in love with it. I was a bit hesitant to wear this out to shoot, but I got so many compliments on how unusual and unique the dress was that I knew I wanted to share it with you. I paired my dress with simple black heels, a clutch and you could easily add a fur vest for the evening.
