Party Time !!! Ceeeeelebration nanana come on!

The best thing about December, except the snow (when there is some) , the holidays and Christmas, it's of course the numerous parties.

When you think party, you think (well I do) eating, but you may think dressing too (obviously). And then starts the stress: "OMG like what am I gonna wear like OMG Jeez?" and you start swearing and saying OMG at least once every ten words. And there, ladies, come the Power Rangers to rescue you. So now I'll just pretend we all have money and eat caviar pancakes for breakfast with champagne and have Louboutin slippers and a gigantic bed with silk bedspreads and that , for parties, we of course all wear designer. Ready? POWER ,RANGERS, GO!

First, if there's one thing you have to remember, it's the word shine (also see my other article :http://powerrangersgo.blogspot.com/2006/10/shiiiiine.html) . Everything has to shine. Because the world is much better with shiny minidresses and shoes and because it's the only time of the year when you can over-dress and be tacky as hell without anyone making any comments because, let's face it, it's new year's eve party and anyway everyone is too drunk to say anything.


  • Gold.

Ahhh....Gold. Is there anything more luxurious, more shiny and tacky and epitome of richness? No. And that is great. Wear an overload of golden accessories, with golden dresses and golden makeup. Drink and eat in golden glasses and plates and paint all your house gold (okay, maybe not that extreme)

  • Drapey-ness

Because there's nothing sexier than a bright, jewel-toned, silky, drapey minidress. They enhance your curves and flatter at all the right places. Shexy feminine without being (too) slutty. The master is undeniably Versace, whose (slap me, but I don't want to lie) evening dresses I adore. Okay, now you can slap me but I won't change. I LOVE VERSACE. Mwahahaha (Cruella Devil laugh).


  • Glitter

Ahhh...my passion for glitter. Glitter makeup, glitter shoes, glitter tights...Is there anything better than glitter when you want to shine? Party-perfect dresses and skirts were all over the runway with glitter dresses, so-tacky-they're-beautiful glitter tights at Gucci, and so on. The magnificence of glitter shoes (last year's Miu Miu) is also magnificently wonderful. the right touch to make a blah-day go supercalifrahilisticiousyougetit. And the best way to be the hot girl at a party.Woohoo!


  • Brocade.

Yum. Luxurious, tapestry-like, over-the-top, wonderful. If it's all those adjectives, it has to be brocade. Dries Van Noten had marvellous brocade jackets and skirts, whilst Miu Miu ruled the runway with its shiny brocade minidresses and baroque-style wedges.

Now, if you don't rock the party and have all the guys swoon over you and the girls get jealous and try to kill you, there must be something wrong with you. Sorry!

Mmmm...luxury. I especially adore brocade for this time of year, and gold is absolutely one of my favorite colors. You know I'd step over my own mother to get those silver glitter Miu Miu heels, too.

aha, this post is great, made me laugh lots!

and dammmn you're so right about the tacky-ness.

I love tackyness, but of course, one has to be very daring to try, so a drunken new years eve is a good idea.

Shame that night has already passed!..
Love the blue dress sasha is wearing. Though maybe because its her wearing it.

Do you want to swap links?
