Happy New Year!

What better way to start off the blog posts of 2010 than with an outfit post?
New Year's eve was spent with my boyfriend and some friends out to one of my favourite restaurants for some good food, wine, champagne and dancing (well, I didn't do much dancing but I had a great time observing two Jersey Shore-eque guys doing the fist pump for a few songs haha)

I finally got to wear the pretty dress I bought in Germany earlier this year! I have this weird tendency to hoard "special" clothing purchases... I buy something and keep on waiting to wear it because I often think it's too nice to waste on just a regular night out. I am going to work on that in the new year. Things just keep building up otherwise and I never get to enjoy them enough. Does anyone else have this problem or am I the only strange one out there like this? :)

The dress is by Joana Danciu, and she has a boutique in Munich on Maximillian Street. She is a Romanian designer which made this purchase that much more special for me, since I was born and raised there.

I also wore black nylons, which are not pictured, and a pair of simple round-toe black patent pumps by Guess.
The clutch is Marc Jacobs, from his 2008 resort collection. I found it hidden in the racks of a Nordstrom sale a few months ago and it's been my baby ever since :)

Bracelets are by Tiffany's, nail polish is Essie "Mint Candy Apple". I've been obsessed with this colour all winter.

I hope you all have had a great start to the new year so far and I'm looking forward to what 2010 has to offer. I am still hanging along with "Project 10 Pan" - although I mini-cheated and bought some MAC Power Kohl eyeliners and a tinted lip conditioner with Christmas gift cards... oops :)
So far I have not finished anything, 0/10, but I am working on it... I just hope my concealer doesn't run out first because going without it will not be a pretty sight haha




  1. what a beautiful dress, you look lovely.

    I have that problem too, I decided no more buying fancy things unless I have an occasion to wear it to

  2. *lol* I'm the same with 'nice' clothes. I keep buying them and wait until there is a reason to wear them only to find out that they don't fit anymore :(

  3. You look gorgeous! The dress is beautiful, and really it's nice that you've left it to wear for New Year's. I wish I had that sort of restraint! Ha, :) I'm forever wearing items that have been supposedly, 'saved'. I'm especially liking the 'Leighton Meester' hair - something I wish to achieve myself! Great first post to the year girly, hope it's a good'un for you :) xx

  4. You look stunning in the dress!

    Have a happy new year :)

  5. I love the dress! You look gorgeous.

  6. My next trip to Munich is in a few weeks. I think I check the store, because the dress looks very pretty!

    Happy 2010!


  7. Good luck with your project 10 pan. I really need to start one of these, but I don't think I could go that long without buying anything! Especially not with all the limited edition collections MAC has coming out, I think I want something from all of the ones I've seen for the next few months.

  8. Oh my, you are a heck of a gorgeous woman :)
    Love the outfit, cute and classy at the same time.
