The holiday season is never officially over on my calendar until we bid farewell to one year and ring in the new one. I hope you enjoy dressing up for New Years Eve parties as much as I love designing a special frock for you to wear for the annual celebration.Fancy, formal ball room parties may be a thing of the past making evening gowns obsolete for most of us. But New Years remains the one holiday when glitz needs no excuse. You can still look glam even if you plan to spend New Years Eve at an intimate, informal celebration with family and close friends. Just look at SC3044, our "Pretty Wonderful" cocktail dress. It's been our bestseller for the entire holiday season. We're almost sold out! The Empire waistline and A-line skirt flatter any body type and hide most figure flaws, including those extra pounds we all put on between Thanksgiving and Jan. 1st! Customers tell me they love this one-shoulder style because the black- and-white color block design works year-round making it ideal for a New Years Eve party dress to have in their wardrobe. For a real fashion statement, add silver or gold accessories to this party dress. Remember, best to keep jewelry, shoes and evening purse simple. Less is best if you want to create a striking and stylish look. Glamour-tini Toast No song is more associated with New Year's Eve than Auld Lang Syne. The timeless tune is rich and always welcome, even if it is oh-so predictable! It wouldn't be New Year's without balloons, bubbly champagne, fireworks and watching the big ball fall in Times Square. So turn down the lights, turn up the music and bring on the decorations. What better way to toast the New Year than with Sydney's Closet Glamour-tini, our signature cocktail. It's sure to stir up conversation. Be sure to serve scrumptious nibbles with any drinks. Stuffed mushrooms are always a hit or keep it simple but sophisticated with cold, peeled shrimp dipped in cocktail sauce. Wishing you and your loved ones a New Year filled with laughter and love.
