new year's eve trends

How did everyone do over the holidays? I had a great time with family, but I'm ready to get back to normal eating and sleeping and life!

Of course, there's still one big night left before the end of the year. The question is always whether to buy something new or wear something you own for New Year's Eve. Luckily, with rental services, you can wear a new-to-you gown without having to shell out hundreds of dollars for something you're probably not going to want to wear again. 

Here are a few of my picks for trends in evening wear, all available from Rent the Runway.

Cutouts: if you've been keeping up with your barre classes (uh...), you might feel brave enough to try one of these. Or not.

Jumpsuits are a fun way to be dressed up but still comfy. Do a jumpsuit with culotte pants and hit two trends at once. 

Off the shoulder has been big for both casual and dressy this year. Always helpful if you prefer a little arm coverage. 

Do you have big plans for New Year's Eve? What are you wearing? There's still time to order a rental from Rent the Runway, and if you use this link, you'll get $30 off your first rental. They're not paying me for this blog post, but I will get a credit if you sign up through the link! 

I'm pretty excited about my NYE plans - I'll be going to the STL Symphony New Year's Eve concert, and I'm going to be interviewed on the live broadcast. We'll be talking about orchestra fashion - if you're not sure what that is, make sure to tune in! ;) Listen to the live broadcast Saturday night at 7pm on 90.7 KWMU or online here

Happy New Year!

P.S. Have you signed up for my email list yet? Only one email a month, and this month, I'll be talking about some big plans I have for 2017, as well as events and sales. Sign up below.

Here's what I actually wore on my recent night out. Erika, publicist extraodinaire, got my friend Jen and me on the VIP list for the final event of St. Louis Fashion week. Jen gave me the best compliment when she said that my top reminded her of Halle Berry's Oscar dress
which was totally my favorite dress this year!

In other news, I look awkward in photos and I need to buy a better camera -
any suggestions (for the camera, not the awkwardness)?
