Red dress to welcome the Year of Fire Monkey

New Year party outfit: red dress worn with long black gloves

Happy New Year! May it bring only the good into your lives! I haven't posted for some time, just decided to take a short break, forget all about blogging for a while and to enjoy the festive season to the fullest. Today is my first post of 2016 and of course, it is showing off my New Year Eve party outfit. As perhaps some of you know 2016 is the Year of the Fire Monkey and so to be in harmony with the energy of the year and befriend the ruling Fiery Monkey energy it was recommended to welcome the new year wearing the colours of the Fire: red, yellow, orange. Not that I always follow this kind of recommendations. This dress was a gift from my husband and definitely he has no idea about all that astrological stuff. He just liked it and bought it. And when I saw it I knew it would be an ideal choice for a New Year party.

The dress is rather glamorous: the top part is embellished with sequins and the hem has asymmetrical design with the front part being of a knee length and the back almost reaching the floor. To add even more glamour to the look I wore long black gloves. Have had them for two years and finally they got their chance.

As other accessories I used Swarovski earrings and necklace and Ted Baker black clutch.
