Soooo back in 2015, one of my favorite designers let me borrow this amazing backless LBD. My lovely friend Kelly snapped the photos, and it was one of my favorite posts up to that point. But after I shot it, I sent it in a package back to their showroom in NYC, never to be seen again. And every time I’ve wanted a sexy little black dress, I’ve WISHED that it was hanging in my closet ?
Fast forward to a few weeks ago, I was browsing through Revolve and I spotted THIS DRESS. The high neck, the short sleeves, the cross back… aka my perfect backless LBD reincarnated! And it’s on sale for ONLY $49! Needless to say, I ordered it immediately and the rest is history.
Now, I know – this dress is tight and backless and those things are not subtle. But at the same time, New Year’s is when you wear something that makes you feel fun and flirty and ready to dance! That being said, I love that it’s still quite classy from the front. If you’re going to dinner and then dancing later, start with a velvet blazer over it… and then ditch it when you’re ready to boogie!
This year, we’re welcoming 2018 in Scottsdale with a bunch of Adam’s friends from college. Even though it’s not going to be super hot, I’m still SO excited to get away from the Chicago chill for a little bit. Plus, this crew is so fun – and the girls have already booked messages while the guys play golf. Literally can not WAIT!
To compliment the look, I added this gold bracelet from Rustic Cuff. They have a store in Water Tower Place right here in Chicago, and their selection is amazing. I love how this one is such a statement all on it’s own!
I’m also loving these tassel earrings I got from my friend Amy, aka Vo Jewelry. I usually get so frustrated with dangle earrings because they’re always so heavy… and if they’re heavy, I’ll keep them on for 30 minutes max, and then in my purse they go ? But not these! They’re so lightweight, I can wear them all night without a problem. Obsessed!
What are you wearing on New Year’s Eve this year?

Wait! One more thing!
If you have no interest in wearing a backless LBD, or even any of the suggestions I made in last week’s post – here’s a sneak peek at another look I love! The full post will be coming soon, but I thought I’d give you a chance to shop it early. Honestly, if I was staying in Chicago for NYE, this is probably what I’d end up wearing!
