Champagne and Confetti

Dress: $45.90  Purchased from Urban Behavior
This dress was perfect for the New Years event I attended at the Mariott Hotel! It was a fun and flirty ensemble that also happened to be in my favorite colour. I was also surprised by how well it matched my shoes! For weeks I had been searching for a new years dress, but nothing really wowed me. I eventually gave up all hope of finding something at the mall and was about to resort to wearing one of my old dresses when lo and behold, this caught my eye as I was leaving the store. It was the last one in my size too. Yay!

Clutch: $5.99 Purchased from Value Village
This vintage clutch is entirely covered with silver beading. It also has a detachable metal strap you can clip on to convert it into a purse.

Shoes: $69.95  Purchased from Zara

Watch: $14.99  Purchased from Value Village
Label: Pulsar
This piece of jewelery is quite small in size, encrusted with jewels around the faceplate and can easily pass as a bracelet. I love this watch, and it looks as new as when I first purchased it. Currently, I am on the hunt for a larger men's/boyfriend watch. Does anyone have any good suggestions as to where to find one? Preferably cheap?

Earrings: $4.99  Purchased from Legends
(a secondhand/vintage store previously located on Main St., now the home of Woo Vintage Clothing)

Admittedly, these earrings are I am unable to wear most earrings that are not at least 14K gold, so clip-ons are a good alternative to purchasing the authentic stuff. Regardless, I love costume jewelery and these earrings were too cute to pass up.

Broke the Bank Find: $69.95 Zara shoes
