Add a little sparkle this New Year’s Eve with baubles from ModCloth

New Year’s Eve is one of my favorite nights of the year. Not just because Don and I always seem to attend a fabulous party filled with great friends and family, but because it’s the quintessential night of hope. On New Year’s Eve, I feel like anything is possible!

So, for this wonderful night, a truly spectacular outfit is an absolute necessity. I have several cocktail dresses that I absolutely LOVE (you know the kind – super slimming, completely wrinkle free, and oh-so-sexy!!). This year I am being frugal (trying to, at least), so I will probably wear one of the dresses from my closet, but a girl can always use a little new sparkle!

The three most interesting options I have found to jazz up a cocktail dress are all from ModCloth, a favorite haunt of mine. ModCloth is filled with unique clothing, vintage items, accessories and of course, lots of great jewelry!

This Champagne and Caviar necklace turns a simple, strapless dress into a showstopper! Reminiscent of the bygone elegance of Edwardian England, this choker is crafted of fine black resin beads in faceted tear drop shapes as well as tiny seed beads. An amazing bargain at only $24.99.

For an ethereal look, these Morgan le Fay earrings are sure to cast a spell on your guy! White egret-white feathers gently brush the shoulders and antiqued gold tone findings are embellished with delicate, faux gems. These enchanting earrings are only $16.99.

Perfect for a one shouldered dress, the Girl’s Best Friend Brooch makes a powerful statement! A bevy of glittering rhinestones spiral around a central pinwheel, complete with golden arms. This sparkling brooch is only $14.99.

Whatever you wear for your festivities, celebrate 2010 in style!
