Endnotes:

Happy New Year’s, everyone! I hope that where ever the strike of midnight finds you tonight, you are having a wonderful time with your loved ones. Here’s to 2010 being a good one! *toast*

I have no special plans for going out tonight and therefor am dressed more for comfort than for glamour. I plan on enjoying the evening at home and then meeting my husband for a Skype date and virtual champagne toast at midnight. Usually I am a big fan of going out on New Year’s Eve because it provides the perfect excuse to don one’s most outrageously sparkly, shimmery, and otherwise extravagant clothing. Will you be donning something fabulous like that tonight? What are your plans for this evening?

I also just wanted to say thank you to all of you who read our site for your continued support and input over this past year, your comments and feedback have made this project so worth it! See you all in 2010! S.

    Those boots are quite the find! I love the blend of black and brown; things like that end up working with so many more outfits and styles.

    We’re going low-key tonight but I do have a fab dress…ahhhh, it needs alterations, gotta go!
    Seriously, thanks for the support of my blog and if you are ever into visiting your Hamilton roots, I’d love you have you over for a bevi. Maybe I’ll even let you plunder my hallowed thrifting zone, Talize…

    Romania as fashion capital–who knew? The bolero is adorable (as is the orange pashmina from a few days ago).

    My NYE plans are pretty casual–dinner in with another couple and our daughters. Wearing my favorite rose-colored sweater, and hoping I don’t spill wine on it!

  12. Maggie says:

    The boots are amazing! I remember being in London for a term and finding some great brown suede boots, but I think yours are better!

    Your sign is so cute :) Thank you for collaborating on this fantastic blog! Being able to escape fashion magazines and find real people wearing real clothes in the most fun and realistic ways is priceless.

    As for what I wore, no sparkles but my excitement came from wearing a Chloe LBD that I scored for 85% off (I can barely believe what the full price was off the runway).

    Happy New Year!

    Adorable way to work the bolero! I am really excited to see how you style it, because I am having a bit of a mental block on how I would do so.
