A couple of weeks ago we were invited to the new Upstairs restaurant in Rice Village for a Blogger Preview of their yummy weekend brunch menu.

It’s been weird stepping away from the blog to spend time with family this past week but it’s also been fully rewarding to give all my time to my husband, my in-laws who are visiting from out of the country and my family, especially my little brother who is visiting from college. I love how we come together as a family during this time of year and we look forward to this with my husband every passing month. Also, on New Year’s Eve, 7 years ago, I met Miguel and he asked me out to dance and now we’ve been married for four years! December 31 is always an extra special date for us and we love to celebrate how lucky we are to have each other.

You might be asking yourself why I’m even talking about New Year’s if Christmas hasn’t even happened! Well, around here, Christmas is a bit more chill and New Year’s Eve is where the party is at! Besides, on New Year’s Eve, 7 years ago I met my one and only, Miguel, at a house party and ever since I met him I knew he was going to be someone special in my life. So we love to dress up on December 31, dance like we did that night and celebrate meeting each other and of course, to welcome a new year together!
Below, you’ll see my satin tafetta prom-style dress that I scored earlier this year and wore to the beauty event I hosted at Topshop and I just have to wear it for New Year’s Eve because I love the thick, sophisticated fabric and sheen that it has. (I also linked a knock-off below for an even more affordable price since the exact one I’m wearing is selling out fast!) I love a dress that’s easy to wear: just throw on some fun heels and bag and you’re good to go.
Besides showing you how I styled my New Year’s Eve look I also scoured Amazon for some amazing deals on some fun and affordable party dresses that you can order and have delivered before December 31 (most of them)! I also included my accompanying suggestions for shoes and a party bags so click away below!
