How did you ring in the New Year? Our New Year’s Eve celebrations typically involve avoiding leaving the house. But this year, we couldn’t resist an invitation to a black-tie Boardwalk Empire-themed evening of ’20s fashion and Sinatra tunes sung by the charming and talented Luca Ellis at The Andaz West Hollywood.

  champgne dresss; what to wear for new year's; what to wear to a 1920s party


Since New Year’s is the unofficial day of Champagne, I decided there was no better time to wear this liquid gold dress that has literally been sitting in my closet since before were were married (nearly six years ago!). In fact, I had purchased it as a possible wedding dress for our cocktail reception on a dazzling New York City rooftop.


I never quite liked the way the top fit on me and don't feel super comfortable in something that's tight from head to tow, so I added a ladylike faur fux jacket on top.

Instead of going for a costumey flapper look, I went the  Art Deco route with black-and-gold heels, a sparkly cuff bracelet and glittering diamond-esque earrings.

It was a really fun departure from our mellower New Year’s celebrations and we’re now Luca Ellis groupies. If you’d like, you can check him out here or on Facebook or Twitter, or if you’re in LA, catch him at The Renaissance on Wednesday nights!


 p.s. Is your Christmas tree still up, too?
