Be it resolved that this New Year's Eve, you'll make your old LBD new again;  Instead of letting it fade into a sea of black, black, black, consider your forlorn old frock a blank canvas for party-ready extras that are made for hosting and toasting.  Be they sparkles, shiny golden extras or flighty feathers, the right accessories can renew even the most basic dress, allowing you to greet the coming year with a serious amount of Jagger-like swagger.  Whether you're celebrating with a close group of friends, or partying with thousands, Happy New Year to you!  Wishing you a 2012 filled with good health, happiness, and, of course, fabulous outfits :) xo

PS - No question this week but check back next week for regular bi-weekly posts.  The CLOSET will be filled to the brim with everything hot (and not) for 2012.  I'm SO excited to share all of my best finds with you! xo
