What are you wearing on New Year's Eve ?..............


What are you wearing on New Year's Eve??

I thought I would do a little "round up" of possibles that I have posted in the last couple of months.

 a reminder........I have been on this merry-go-round of blogging for just four months.  If you would read the
 "meet Jill"  just to the right of where you are looking, you will see that I am not a model.  But I am an educator.  I try to give some suggestions or insights or facts about whatever I am blogging.

But today I'm just giving you some "looks" as you ponder .....
"What am I going to wear on New Year's Eve?"



Winter White gives an elegant, peaceful look..........


Maybe it's a cocktail party and dinner that calls you out on such a festive night.......


Leopard is good for bringing in the New Year............especially if you need a jacket to keep your shoulders warm........


What about a fun, bright airy scarf poncho to brighten up "Auld Lang Syne"


If you will be needing a coat, try a monochromatic look and be sure to include the pearls.....


The paisley and shiny green will dazzle the singing of ....
                        " We'll take a cup o' kindness yet,                                 For auld lang syne...."


Maybe just a silk shirt over a one color pant and top will be perfect for a quiet evening.......


Chilly restaurants may require a light sweater to keep you toasty warm...


A dressy little jacket over black can go anywhere..........


I couldn't resist putting in the $25,000.00 Valentino sequined dress that I gazed upon at the Valentino Shop at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.  I touched it; didn't try it on; it was the only one in the store, size very small.


And when at the end of the evening.........and it's time to sing......sing loudly


Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne.

Chorus:
For auld lang syne, my jo,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne,



In 1788 the Robert Burns sent the poem ‘Auld Lang Syne’ to the Scots Musical Museum, indicating that it was an ancient song but that he’d been the first to record it on paper. The phrase ‘auld lang syne’ roughly translates as ‘for old times’ sake’, and the song is all about preserving old friendships and looking back over the events of the year.
