The blogsphere seems to be a-wash with end of year blog reviews, hatin' on New Years Eve and posts of outfits past today so instead of producing a morbid whining collection of all the highs and lows of the latter year, I'm just going to keep it short and sweet instead! I openly admit that I am a fan of New Year's Eve. And while movies of the name-sake build up the occasion for singletons for that 12am grab, I take New Year's for exactly what it is, just another night out. Now with the turn of January, I have been busy obsessing over my birthday celebrations (both blog and personal) that it white-washed tonight's attire planning. As i trawled through older photos on Instagram today, I came across these past pictures taken for Xpose Magazine in last month's issue that had not yet made the blog cut.
I just love a good power suit, and this Kooples one never fails to disappoint. Opting for ankle boots instead of on-trend bikers (which personally I think look like wellies on anyone over a UK5) this New Year's will be spent celebrating with a sneaky flash of leg and not on the balls of my feet (for once!). As I search for a birthday outfit in the coming weeks, I could not resist giving this House of Holland blue suit a shout-out with it's embellished cocktail glass design and tailored cut. Maybe not for your next job interview (which would likely scream 'drink problem' to your future employer) but with it being reduced in the sale, definitely would prove fun and also highly inappropriate for attendance at funerals. Perhaps start with the trousers and go from there.
Wishing all my Yuck Duck followers a Happier New Year & best wishes for 2014, and don't forget to spend tonight with the ones you love (instead of with the ones you hope might one day care for you).
Until next year Ducklings,
Love Vera Xx
