Advent Season: Day Three

IN THE SPOTLIGHT


Pfft, forget forward planning what to wear on Christmas Day. All you really need is an elasticated waistband, and you're good to go.


Instead, think about New Years Eve. Whether you're hitting the town or sprawling like a cool kid in front of Jools Holland's Hootenamy with a load of drunken oldies (this idea is becoming more and more appealing..), face up to it, the last day of the year is always something of an anti climax. So you may as well ensure that you'll feel good about what you're wearing.


Sure, you could wear plaid this New Years, like everyone else (and his great uncle's wife's next door neighbour), but why not branch out a little and release your inner Hiawatha. Grab the face paint, blusher, hell, even the tomato sauce, let go and paint yourself happy.

ahha new years... i personally like the holiday parties better, becuase there seems to be so many more of them, and no pressure to have the most amazing time (because everyone else is going nuts)

that said, i really do love the head dresses... i saw this lady at a club wearing one, and she looked so cool.

At least it's a original outfit you'll be wearing! I'm thinking too what to wear at New Years Eve. Christmas is important to me too, but not thát important!

You have me thinking abotut my New Year's Eve outfit already. I feel like EVERYONE is going to do the metallic sparkly silvery thing...I for one thought i'd never tire of metallics, but surprisingly it's getting old...

So thank you for this eccentric suggestion! ;)

i LOVE indian (oops...native american) head-dresses but i live in a part of canada that has a lot of native americans, in fact, i live about a half a mile away from a reserve and here wearingone and painting stripes on your face would be racist and offensive, even though i definitely wouldnt intend it that way!
i do so love it though!

ohh how alexa chung and her gorgeoussness and her dating-alex-turnerness taunts me

When I was little I wanted to be an Indian brave when I grew up. I mean a Native American dude with a bow and arrow, not a baseball player.

love native americans, like those stripes. I want to go clubbing and have an excuse to wear war paint and crazy make up

I would definitly feel ready for reverie in a giant headdress. All the rebellion and wildness of a tattoo and none of the permanence.
