happy polka new year!


my polka dots may seem cliche for new year's but not for the superstitious and those who love polka. they say that polka dots or round things on new year mean you get more cash for the year...*crossing my fingers* it's my 3rd year wearing polka for new year's eve (see photos below)...and so far, i'm loving it.

it's the first new year's eve not spent with my family and although i'm crushed as are all my agents, we did try to make the most out of it. we brought food to the office and i bought them all horns to toot when the clock strikes 12. so we stood under the drizzle and screamed and tooted outside the building, looked at the fireworks from our windows when we got back to our floor and ate as much as we could. and now i'm home, eating chocolate cake while everyone is asleep. *sigh*

here are my past polka new year's:

new year at vudu (2008)

new year at waterfront hotel (2009)

polka shift dress - thrifted
black tights - hanes
black peep-toe booties - celine (a gift from harry)
long necklace - a gift from ivy
rings - props

what an awesome outfit! I love the polka dots with the square ring- a great combination! Happy New Year!


You look so smiley and adorable! I love those rings.

And I've never heard about the whole "circles = good luck" and what not, but that's cool! I hope you had a great New Year :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
