Ringing in the New Year…Welcome 2013!!

Hey there my fabulous readers…first off…welcome to the amazing 2013!! I have a feeling it will be a great year. I want to thank you all for making my 2012 super special by supporting my blog, leaving your comments and overall being totally kick-ass people…which I always love ;) For New Year’s, the hubby and I were invited to two events…both house parties, both wonderful. Here’s what I wore to say goodbye to 2012 and hello to 2013…


French Connection Quatro crepe beaded swing dress
Vintage Whiting & Davis silver mesh bag- I adore vintage bags and this one is no exception. I bought it a flea market and it’s one of those delicious treasures you can’t wait to use.
Christian Louboutin Very Prive silver pumps- In the midst of cleaning my house before the New Year, I threw out almost all my shoe boxes…including my beloved Louboutin boxes…it was really hard. Is anyone else attached to their shoe boxes like me?

Sorry for the semi-blurry shots…shooting at sunset was not quite as easy as we thought…it requires that you stand perfectly still and that the photographer have a steady hand. Neither of us excelled in those departments.
Well, that’s it for this post which is soooo last year ;) In all seriousness, I wish you guys a fabulous New Year…let’s be nicer to ourselves, each other and our planet.

    You look beautiful Martha! I am one to keep her shoe boxes, that’s for sure. My closet is stacked with them and I’d be lying if I didn’t say that those stacks don’t fall over on a regular basis! I have more shoes than boxes so recently I bought some terrific plastic boxes specifically made for shoes. You can see through them, which makes them perfect. Now I want one of those boxes for every pair.

    Now you are one HAUTE MAMA. And yes, I get sentimental over shoe boxes, too. Even handbag boxes! Happy 2013 to you and SO HAPPY you entered my life once again because you are simply the sweetest.

    you look fantastic! perfect outfit to ring in the new year! I love the sparkle detail :) And thanks dear. yes, that little white fluffy doggy is our long-haired chihuahua! That’s cool you have one too! They are so adorable. The other dog isn’t ours. We were visiting my boyfriend’s parents. They have four dogs in total and that was one of them :P
