Let me begin this post with two of my favorite shopping tips:
1. When shopping for a special occasion outfit, or any outfit for that matter, don’t be afraid to try something out of the ordinary for you.
2. If it looks ugly on the hanger, it may look ugly on your body, but there’s always a chance it may look fabulous instead. Try it!
As my shopping habits have increased over the years, I have come to better understand these shopping tips and used the first while scouting my New Year’s Eve ensemble. For NYE 2014, I chose to wear a sequin crop top, tulle skirt and leopard print pumps. Now I’m no stranger to sequin and leopard print but the crop top was something new for me (aside from my 90s themed house party).
NYE screams sequence so when I saw that blue shimmer from across the store I had to see what it was, and to my surprise it was a crop top. I gathered other dress options just in case, but the crop top paired with the tulle was something different for me yet incredibly fun… so I ran with it!
So in sum, next time you go shopping, pick out something you wouldn’t image wearing. You just might be surprised how fabulous it looks on you.
