Party-Perfect Peplum Dress for Under $40!

The countdown is on to 2016. Still thinking about what to wear on New Year’s Eve (or Old Year’s Night)? Here’s a fabulous dress option. It comes in a rich burgundy hue. It features a few edgy exposed zippers. It is cut to flatter curves. And, the best part? The dress is already on sale for just $34.

Dress—c/o Venus

Shoes—J.Crew (on sale)

Earrings—J.Crew | option

Rings—Kendra ScottKendra Scott

Watch—Movado | Skagen option

Lip—Mac “Rebel” lipstickMac “Currant” lip pencil

Blush—NYX powder blush in mocha

Nails—OPI “Deutsch You Want Me Baby”

This dress is so stunning that I kept my accessories simple. I chose statement earrings instead of a necklace, so I could show off the neckline of the dress. The mixed resin earrings are an older style from J.Crew. These Perla earrings in the rose gold/mother of pearl combination would work well too though. I own the gunmetal version in that earring style.

To add a little glitz, I’m wearing my J.Crew Elsie glitter pumps. I purchased my first pair of J.Crew Elsie pumps during the post-Christmas sales last year. Just like that, Elsie pumps became my go-to shoes for adding glam to any look.

Sizing? I’m wearing the dress in a size 6. 

Cheers to being one day closer to 2016!

    I love how the dress has two different textures. Simple and classic. And I need to get my hands on some glitter shoes ASAP!
