This year has gone by so fast! I thought 2017 was going to be the best year ever but instead, I hit a new record of how many times I’ve gotten sick in one year. Maybe it has to do with all the traveling I’ve been doing recently, but it was all worth it. I got to visit Asia and Europe again with some of my best friends and I even got to do a week and a half backpacking trip in Myanmar (aka Burma) which was a brand new country for me.

This New Year’s Eve, we are ending it with a bang in Las Vegas! That means that I definitely need a wardrobe that fits the city. I thought this silver dress would be perfect especially since they have petite sizes! It adds the right amount of sparkle to the evening. I also decided to wear a red lip with this since the dress itself is on the monochromatc side.

Express Maxi Dress (PXS): I originally ordered the PXXS and the PXS and decided to go with the latter. You can’t tell by the pictures, but there is actually a black bodysuit underneath. So when I tried on the PXXS, the bodysuit definitely rode up and made things too uncomfortable. If you have a shorter torso, this would definitely be for you. Otherwise, the PXS was perfect for me. The bodysuit keeps the plunge neckline from puckering and possibly causing a wardrobe malfunction. With that being said, since this material is pretty thin, you can see the outline of the bodysuit from the back. So unfortunately, it does look like you have a panty line. The hem of the dress hits right at the top of my heel so there is no concern that it’ll drag on the floor which is always nice for a petite person.

ASOS Hang Time Heels (Sz 6): I can’t even begin to tell you how long it took me to find some simple black strappy heels that didn’t squeeze the front of my feet. I really wanted the Steve Madden’s Stecy heels because it’s the exact style I’ve been looking for. Unfortunately, when I finally tried them on, I barely could get my foot through. The material they use is some sort of man-made material that gives no stretch at all.

Alas, ASOS came to the rescue with their Hang Time Barely There heels. Not only is it made out of suede which gives it some flexibility, but it also comes in regular and wide fit! I’m usually a size 6.5 in most heels, but after trying multiple sizes, the regular 6 was perfect for me. The wide fit that I tried on was definitely way too wide and my foot pretty much slipped right through.

Firecracker Earrings: These are absolutely my favorite earrings during the holidays. BaubleBar did an amazing job with the design and quality. The earring is made up of two pieces. There is a smaller piece in the front and a bigger piece in the back that peeks out behind the earlobe.
