The petticoat from American Apparel puts me into the mood for dancing to songs of Billie Holiday.

The highest pair of shoes I own from Bordello.

I wish you all a wonderful New Year's Eve ! I do have a little story about this special day just for you: Once, there was a girl, she dreamed of New Year's Eve. She longed to wear an opulent outfit and have her darling take her out to an opulent party with all the luxury in the world. He would hold open the door for her and help her out of her fur cape. They would drink Champagne from crystal glasses and dance tight to the song "I'll be seeing you" from Billie Holiday (just click play on the video at the bottom of the post and you will hear this song while you read). Later, they would watch the fireworks together and kiss each other while saying hello to the new year. They would look deep into each others eyes and promise to love each other forever.

I present you the outfit I imagine this girl could wear. It is a mix of new, old and vintage pieces: This beautiful dress I found at HM a few years ago. I think it would be perfect for this occasion with it's elegant emerald green colour. If I combine it with the bolero from Viven of Holloway, I feel dressed well. The white vintage fake fur cape keeps warm and the beautiful hat from Collectif completes the look. Of course I am wearing the highest heels I own to make my legs as long as possible. This Bordello shoes are surprisingly comfortable if you consider their hight.

The brooch is a special piece from my beloved friends and fabulous designers Azumi and David from London. They are an incredibly lovely and charming couple and their designs often have a surprising or surreal touch. If you ever look for a special handbag, you should have a look at their heeled handbags. The bangle is from the Anna Dello Russo for HM collection to show my adoration for amazing Anna. The necklace is from my mother with a lot more adoration donated to this special woman.

I wish the girl in the story was me, but it is not this year. Maybe next year? The beauty of unfulfilled dreams is, you can continue dreaming. Unfortunately I am sick at home. I am glad that we took this pictures already last week, otherwise I wouldn't be able to show you this look. So I go back and hide under my blankets and wish you all the best, have a lot of love and joy this night and in 2013! Thank you for reading my posts and all your lovely comments!
