GET THE LOOK: NEW YEAR’S EVE

This is it – one of the biggest parties of the year where no amount of bling is considered over the top. Square sequins move like fringe on this 1920’s inspired dress, paired with a modern jacket and high shine accessories. All that’s missing now is a little confetti, champagne and a midnight kiss.
