• New Years Look for Less

    The Look by Madewell

    The trend of mixing patterns has been turned up a notch by adding different textures and I’m head over heels for it! I love this outfit because of the mix of different fabrics; sequins, silk, and heavy cotton. The balance of the three creates a perfect casual glam look for a new years party. Would you wear this look for new years?

      Liz –

      Love this look for less! I am a huge fan of mixing textures, patterns, and colors… and if it includes not-your-mothers-sequins then I am even more a fan!

      I love the idea of this look for less since $140 is a heck of a lot better than $670! Although I may just splurge on the skirt and skimp on the others.

        I agree about splurging on the skirt! Sometimes the web is limiting when it comes to shopping. The good news is I am sure you could recreate this look for even less by looking at sales racks and thrift stores. Glad you liked the look!

      Love this look! I already own several similar pieces, so I think I could recreate this pretty well. Thanks for sharing!

      Oh I would totally wear this for a New Year’s party or for anything. Unfortunately Chris and I will be apart for the new year, so I have a feeling I’ll be going to bed shortly after I put the kiddos down.

      Maybe I should still have a little party for myself and get dolled up anyway and make Italian sodas for 1.

      Love the idea of pairing a girly blouse with a military type shirt/jacket! Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂
