New Years Eve is one of my favorite holidays. I have so many wonderful memories from NYE and they all contain sparkles, dripping-in-glam outfits, a boy to kiss at midnight, noise makers and fancy cocktails with girlfriends. Each year seems to bring more glitter, more glitz and more glam. My ultimate idea of a glamorous New Years Eve would be to ring in the new year in NYC!
This year, with Hpnotiq’s SparkleLouder contest which runs from November 4 through December 8, 2013, you have a chance to win a NYE trip to New York City!

Now let's talk about what I would wear if I won. See, I have this little dress I found in a Virginia Beach thrift store last summer.
I did not say from a VA Beach high-end consignment shop...
No, I said from a thrift store called Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters Thrift Store.
The tag said $8, plus all "summer" dresses were an additional 50% off. This was not even remotely a summer dress. It was a shiny beacon of glittery, sequin-y, BCBG joy calling my name. Meet my BCBG super sexy NYE 2014 dress that I purchased for $4!
