NYE Chevron Sequins + Sexy Little Black Dress

Hi Dolls!! I am so in love with my jacket from Electric Frenchie! it is now a favorite piece in my wardrobe and what I plan to wear on NYE. 

What makes this jacket even more fabulous is that I can rock it with anything; throw it over jeans and a white tee or over a LBD like I did. I knew when I got the jacket in the mail that I wanted it to be the star so I paired it with  this diy dress I made earlier in the year. You have until tomorrow to order and get FREE day domestic shipping so hurry!

DIY Tutorial: Christian Louboutin Bow-Tie Shoe

Hi Darlings! I came across a pair of red bottoms on pinterest and I loved them but cant afford them so I went off to create the look myself. I wanted the bow to be removable so I I could still wear the shoes the way they came so I was able to find the clip on earring findings at Joann.
