Well folks, another year and another chance to get things rolling. I personally would like to start the year off by eating right, staying fit, being happy, successful, and finding inner peace. Is that too much to ask?
I got invited to go to a very classy New Years Eve party this coming weekend, which I’m really excited about. If you haven’t noticed already, I jump at any chance to doll myself up for any sort of event, whether it be a wedding, birthday, or a formal event such as a New Years Eve party
I’ve been thinking about what to wear to this event these last few days, and I have narrowed it down to this lovely Bebe embroidered, black, dress I have been dying to wear. It’s a short, somewhat curve-hugging long-sleeved dress with a mock neck. It’s a last year’s model dress, which I happened to find for a steal on an app I use called Poshmark (think Balmain style):
Unfortunately, this dress is sold out. BUT, bebe always comes out with similar versions of this dress around Christmas time. Here are a few (below). These dresses are pricey, but they are absolutely worth the money. They are very well made: thick, quilted fabric, and the embroidered sequins are actually mini studs that are tacked on through the fabric (instead of sewn on with thread).

Bebe Pearlescent Detail Dress ($395.00) (Buy here)
Bebe Studded Jacquard Dress in White ($198.0) (Buy here)
Bebe Studded Jacquard Dress in Black($198.0) (Buy here)
Bebe Mock Neck Dress ($395.0) (Buy here)
If these dresses are out of your price range, I did manage to find a few more affordable and similar looking ones if you’re willing to wait a bit on receiving them in the mail. I found a couple very similarly styled dresses on AliExpress that I’ve personally purchased myself and can confirm that they are equally of very good quality. Here’s a few:
From left to right:
Missord Sexy O-neck long-sleeved geometric silver and gold studded velvet dress ($20) (Buy here)
Women’s Autumn Black Studded Long sleeve Night Club Mini Party Dress in Red ($48) (Buy here)
High Quality Runway Celebrity Black Long Sleeve Studded Beaded Bandage Dress ($90) (Buy here)
I personally like the first one (which I ordered and love!) because there is embroidering on both the front and the back of the dress. Lots of dresses in this style usually don’t have any sequins or studs on the back of the dress….probably because it would feel uncomfortable when sitting down.
Anyway, if you’re still on the hunt for a New Years Eve (or maybe even a valentine’s day dress), consider this Balmain-style dress. It is def a show-stopper and sure to turn heads at any event!
