Memo 308: Four Places To Shop For New Year’s Eve

















I just really feel deep in my soul that for New Year’s Eve you should try your best to be as extra and over-the-top as possible. Give me all the faux fur, sequins and sparkle that you can fit into one lewk!

This season, I teamed up with Monroe Steele of Fashion Steele NYC to show you all how we do over-the-top for New Year’s Eve. I tapped Monroe because I just respect and appreciate her style aesthetic. I love her natural hair and I do believe that she has the same addiction to shoes that I do. Also, I need for you all to get into her travel pics on Instagram. Can we says #TravelGoals ?!

In addition to the NYE style inspiration, we wanted to give you our personal recommendations on where to shop to get your extra shine for the New Year. Check out Fashion Steele NYC to find out where Monroe likes to shop.

Here are a few of my go-to places to shop for NYE.

Favorite Places To Shop For New Year’s Eve

  1. ASOS – Duh, right? ASOS is literally my first stop when I’m searching for anything. They have so many options and there is always a sale. With their price point and body positive offerings (plus-size, maternity, tall and petite), literally every body type can get involved. They’re, also, really good about placing what you need for the Season right in front of your face. Get into their NYE offerings here.
  2. Pretty Little Thing – I just discovered Pretty Little Thing this year (which is, also, sold on ASOS) and they are bodycon and show-a-little skin central. The majority of the pieces that they offer aren’t quite my taste but after a bit of searching, there are some real gems hidden on the site. To get to what I like most from them, I end up doing a search for ‘premium’ items or perusing through the Featured Shops.
  3. NastyGal – Yeah, so, I have about four items from NastyGal enroute to my mailbox as we speak! It doesn’t hurt that they’re offering 50% off of everything. Literally, half off of everything that they have on the site right now.
  4. Net-A-Porter – I mess with Net-A-Porter hard ESPECIALLY during this time of the year because they are smack dab in the middle of their seasonal sale. I like to go to them for all of my designer shoe needs.

Honorable Mentions

  • BCBG – Quiet as kept, I will still take a look and see what BCBG is offering.
  • Zara – If you follow me on Instagram Stories, you know that I recently went to Zara and lost my whole entire mind.
  • House of CB – I’ve never purchased from House of CB but their pieces look like that would do your body justice for NYE.
