New Year’s Eve Dress Idea (& Day 7 of 12 Days of Giveaways)

Have you thought about what you want to wear for New Year’s Eve this year? This sequin strapless midi dress is my New Year’s Eve dress idea. If I had to wear only one dress for the rest of my life, it would absolutely be this sequin strapless midi dress which, in my opinion, is old Hollywood glamour at it’s finest!

I am definitely past the point in my life where I want to wear a little body con dress, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still love sequins! While on the hunt for a sequin New Year’s Eve dress idea that I could actually feel comfortable in I came across this dress in store and did an embarrassing ‘stop-dead-in-my-tracks’ situation. (Seriously. There was someone walking behind me and he fully walked into me because I was the awkward person who stopped for no reason!)

To me this dress screamed old Hollywood, while still being modern  & fun. Definitely what I am looking for in a New Year’s Eve dress idea. As you can probably tell from these photos, the sequins on this dress are so cool because their color really depends on the light. I would say that the dress is predominately a black to rose gold ombre, but in certain lighting it definitely  looks more green. Overall when trying to come up with a New Year’s Eve dress idea, this sequin midi dress will always be a hit!

To keep up with the old Holywood glamor vibes, I paired my Eliza J sequin midi dress with chunky black suede heels and a designer bag. This Gucci black velvet bag has been a huge fashion ‘hit’ this year, and the velvet really does make any festive outfit ‘pop’.  This was an investment piece for me; and it was so worth it. You will see this Gucci bag on LegalLee Blonde a lot in the next few weeks as the bag really goes with nearly every outfit!
