All is Quiet on New Years Day

by jennine on January 1, 2009

It may be silence, but it also may be that I’ve lost my hearing from all the fireworks. Last night was delightful, nothing spectacular, we went to a home-cooked dinner party with lovely friends and lit up a bunch of fireworks (yes…that’s legal in Germany too!)

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”


Forgetting all about ‘what to wear’… I left it to the last second to get dressed. Last night I was all about ruffles, a while back, started turning clothes on the edges, making one shoulder dresses. So I took a ruffly skirt, turned it on it’s side, wore another ruffle skirt, and a sequin tube top underneath for a ‘bra’/sweater (sequin tubes are warm arent’ they… it’s counter intuitive, but they are).

I couldn’t get any good pictures of the outfit last night, as it was dark… but I did get some great pics of the fireworks…

Out with a bang…

Your outfit looks great from that top picture, though! I love the combination of all the ruffles.

Seriously, the dress is too cute and the boots are fiercely fun! Looks like you had a lot of fun. I spent my New Year’s Eve at home, hopefully I will get out this year. Happy New Year!

Happpy New Years and I love the ruffles. I wish we could do fireworks here but its illegal.They take away all of the fun.

I love that you did an Oprah quote. I have been dvring her lately and I secretly love it.

Love your outfit, Jennine! I’m enjoying a nice, quiet day here, too. Happy 2009!

I love it! Your hair is looking really wonderful lately, too.

Also I had no idea that people lit fireworks for New Year’s in Germany . . . We lit them off here but for some reason the idea of setting off fireworks on a German street seems so much more glamorous than lighting ones on a roof that have been smuggled in from Alabama. :)

Happy New Year!

(we are fireworks twins!!! )

Amazing outfit, and high five to legal fireworks! We’re not so lucky here in Australia, but spending NYE at Bondi Beach is a fairly decent consolation :)

Happy 09!
