I was really happy with my New Year's Eve outfit. I bought both the owl jumper and the tunic on sale, one in mid-December and the other way back in October. The jumper was a little large so I almost returned it, but the owls were too adorable. (Can you blame me?) As for the top, it's made by one of my favorite (fair-trade) brands, Sugarhill Boutique, so while it wasn't my usual style, I knew that it would be great quality. As with my Christmas outfit, I had bought the clothes not thinking at all about the holidays. But given the sequins, the jumper turned out to be perfect for NYE, and I couldn't wait to show off the owls. I still can't believe how well the two pieces went together; they are basically the same length, and since the jumper is so thin (as is the tunic, which is lined yet still slightly sheer), the bottom of the tunic acted as a slip. I would totally wear this outfit again to a party in 2012, but next time I would wear black tights and leave the color (purple, orange, and/or blue) to the pumps, flats, or mary janes for a more unified and softer look.
