Outfit of the day: Dec. 31 10

Outfit of the Day - New Years Eve.

I think on New Years Eve, you should pick an outfit like you do for a bride. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Because that, in essence, is life.

Your outfit should represent what you loved about the past year, and what you want to project going forward.

Outfit Breakdown:

Mac & Jac silk dress: $12 (MSRP: $100, from Macy’s)

Nylons: $1 (from Grocery Outlet)

Leg Warmers: $2 (from Grocery Outlet)

Accessories Breakdown:

Kenneth Cole Reaction circle necklace: $5 (from Antique World Mall)

Gold chain: $1 (from Antique World Mall)

Terner watch: $2.50 (from downtown Idaho Youth Ranch)

Peacock bracelet: $5 (from Albuquerque Buffalo Exchange)

Gold/copper/silver bracelet (borrowed semi-permanently from Julia Holmes)

Frye Boots black clogs: $22 (MSRP: $160+,from LUX)

Total Cost: $50.50

For good Cheep finds at Macy’s, look for the signs that say “50%-75% off the lowest marketed sale price”. These racks contain steals. This dress is silk, and quirky, and one of my favorite Cheep finds of 2010. Cheers to you, something old. I also tip my hat to my birth decade, the 80s, with these useful and adjustable leg warmers.

Remember to get the basics, like stockings and socks, when you’re not desperate for them. There’s nothing more pathetic than having to interrupt your dressing plans to drive to a sprawling grocery store for an overpriced pair of L’eggs. Just keep an eye out for stocking/sock discounts whenever you happen to be out. Grocery Outlet often has a great selection of leggings, socks and nylons for a buck or two each.

Happy New Year everyone! May 2011 bring you many Cheep finds and fabulous tidings.
