DRESS: c/o Hello Holiday CLUTCH: c/o Luna on the Moon
SHOES: Forever 21 (old) FLOWER GARLAND:Beauxoxo

Happy New Year! Feeling incredibly optimistic looking towards 2015 - a blank slate was exactly what I needed! Feeling re-energized and busy making goals. I was also thinking about doing a 2014 highlights post - but apparently people don't like them? :C What do you think?

ANYHOO LEMME TALK ABOUT THIS GORGEOUS OUTFIT. Can we all just take a moment to gush over this stunning black with a sheer overlay number the babes at Hello Holiday sent me?!

This dress manages to incorporate so many of my favorite things - sheer elements, a Peter Pan collar, a fit and flare silhouette. The silhouette gives it a retro feel, but the use of sheer and wholly original take on the Peter Pan collar gives it a fresh spin! Truly a perfect dress, and you can take 20% off your order with the code "2015" on Hello Holiday now!

Moving onto accessories, I paired the dress with the cutest peppermint clutch! Handmade in London by Luna on the Moon, this clutch is completely covered in chunky glitter that seriously won't budge - beautifully made, appeals to my sweet tooth and it even arrived with pop rocks candy!

And finally, my darling flower garland was a gift from Georgie at Beauxoxo - I am lucky enough to own a couple pieces from Georgie's line and am forever impressed by the quality and sheer beauty! This one might just be my favorite, with delicate gold leaf and white roses - it looks so striking with my pink hair!

Hope you are having a good start to 2015 <3

  3. Sparkly clutch!! I don't know where or when the novelty bag trend got started, but I'm loving every minute of it. uwu

    I think a highlight post sounds great. I'm always really curious to see what people feel most proud of in their year. I hope 2015 is everything you want it to be, Kailey. :)

  6. Such a wonderful holiday outfit, gorgeous gal! I've been eyeing that dress, and I'm so tempted to get it, but I've spent way too much already! I love the ladies at Hello Holiday. And the bags from Luna on the Moon are always great, but this one is probably my favorite! Hope your 2015 is wonderful <3

  8. I love everything about this look! The sheer collar looks gorgeous, and I agree, that flower crown does look perfect with your hair color! As for the bag, finding pieces with glitter that doesn't fall off constantly is such a task. I'll have to check that brand out! Have a lovely 2015, Kailey!

  32. How did you manage to find lipstick that perfectly matched your hair? It's gorgeous!
    That is quite an impressive bag. I know from my limited experience how difficult putting chunky glitter on things can be. If they have other types of candy available, I'll definitely be picking one up.
