2012. The year of the impending apocalypse? Whatever may happen, we are looking forward to a year filled with possibility, optimism, and friendship. Since New Year's Eve is quickly approaching, we've been searching for party attire for the occasion. We've both been particularly drawn towards jewel tones for the season, and these 1980s party dresses were the perfect frocks for a weekend filled with festivities. We hope everyone rings in the New Year with friends and loved ones by their side, ready for new adventures in 2012.

I really like both of your dresses, however Jenny I like the sheen that your dress gives off. It reminds me of this one car I saw in Vallejo that has this cool effect paint that when you look at from one side it's one color and a different color from another side. Very cool effect and so pretty!

gee :

i love when you two do post together. :)
those dresses look divine on both of you..perfect choice in color. i still can not believe the year is almost over.

The Thriftaholic (Leilani) :

YAY I always love when the two of you do shoots together, it looks like so much fun. The jewel tones of your dresses really pop against the classical style setting. Also I'm envious of these wonderful '80s dresses, whenever I see '80s frocks they are WAY too over the top with sequins, huge shoulder pads, etc. Hope you have a great new year!

Joyce :

Both dresses are so pretty! I love the purple color :)
