NYE Inspo: Boho Meets Luxe

NYE Inspo: Boho Meets Luxe

The new year is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited! 2016 means to me greater opportunity, more wisdom, even better memories to be made and additional time to accomplish my goals! Bring it on!! 😉

One of my goals for the year ahead is to step out of my comfort zone and network within the fashion industry. Well, I’ve already ventured out a bit and have met some amazing people including Yawa of Stilettos And Pearls. She’s an Atlanta based style blogger, a go-getter, a serious fashionista and I’m obsessed with her beautiful African accent!

We recently collaborated with  Planet Blue, a Buckhead Atlanta clothing boutique, to share some last minute NYE outfit ideas for those of you that are going out but still undecided on what to wear. Planet Blue {started in Cali} is a swanky and chic store carrying the most fashion foward threads. Their collection has a bohemian, beachy vibe mixed with the perfect amount of luxe. The store carries sizes XS-L and only keeps an inventory of a few pieces in each size to ensure that your look is exclusive!

Yawa and I had a blast trying on different dresses, and the staff in the store treated us like queens! We decided to style dresses that would stand out {in a good way} at a party since most others will go for sequins and glitter for NYE. Yawa wore a super flattering lace swing dress that complimented her long legs and curvy figure. I went for a black midi dress with sheer lace panels. I felt that this little number accentuated my petite frame, and when it got a bit chilly in the evening I grabbed for one of their beautiful furs! Remember, choosing a dress that compliments your shape and size is SO important.

Lastly, Planet Blue’s collection can be a bit pricey for bargainista’s {like me!}, but investment pieces are OK as long as they are high quality and timeless (meaning not trendy). You can always consign with sites like thredUP to make a portion of your investment back when you are ready to pass on that piece to the next stylish gal.

Sign up on Planet Blue’s site now to receive emails on sales/deals, and for a chance to win a $200 store gift card. Also, don’t forget to follow my girl Yawa at www.stilettosandpearls.com!

I hope you enjoy this shoot as much as we did!!
