Celebrating in style (and football helmets)

Our New Year’s Eve involved good food, great company, fancy drinks, poor lighting conditions (for taking photos, apparently), grapes (a tradition!), football helmets (don’t ask), Penny Can!, a sleepover and LOTS of fun.

Hopefully yours was equally as memorable! I don’t know about you, but I have a good feeling about 2012…

A New Year’s Eve message from Gatsby

Well, 2011 was awesome, just like me.  I’m now a big city dog, so you better recognize. I destroyed approximately 30 pieces of mail this year, which I believe is a personal best. In 2012, I hope to destroy the actual mailman. I’m already drunk, but when do I get to break into this champagne? Get me off this f@%$ing table.

Happy New Year!


So Rent the Runway is having an awesome sale right now – 40% off today only!

That means that I could rent either one of these out-of-my-price-range designer dresses for less than $50. Total!

I was already considering using Rent the Runway for New Years Eve, and with this great sale, how can I resist?

The only problem is that we don’t exactly have set New Years Even plans yet… but after a couple of casual discussions with our friends, I was assured that I would be able to wear a sequin dress (yay!).

So now I just need to decide – which dress?

I love the gold one, but I have a feeling that color would not look as great on a pale, brunette me.

I also love the stripes on the other one, but it’s not as fitted. But I could always wear it with a belt?

Help me out – I need opinions, stat!

P.S. If you’ve never tried Rent the Runway, I highly recommend them. I rented a dress for a black tie wedding two summers ago and loved it! You can read about it here.
