Little Black Dress week, heeeeey!? Well that I can do. Black dresses and I go together like peas and carrots. Like Champaign and New Years Eve. Like Christmas and a few extra kilos. Speaking of a few extra kilos, I would’ve sworn this dress fit perfectly before the festive season. Before a couple of weeks off the gym, before eating myself silly on all things festive treats. But you know what, ’tis the season and there is plenty of time in the new year to get back on track. Plenty of time for the gym and the pool. Plenty of time for lots of things. That’s the gift of the whole new year. For the lucky ones.

New Year is so full of promise and optimism and hope, I love that. Sparkly, shining futures all ready to be experienced. Who will you be this year that is so different from who you were this year. What is there in store for you and what more is there out there for you? Last year I was full of hope and promise that 2012 would be my year. Our year. We had plans. Big plans. It turns out that life did too and while they were different to what we had hoped for, they were pretty darn good. I’m excited to see what is in store for me next.

The little black dress, it holds all that promise for me. the promise of New Year, the promise of parties and fun, and of family and friends. A little black dress can turn a girl missing the heck out of the beach, with half done hair and a little too much bronzer feel like a million bucks. It can incite all sorts of things, in husband type people especially. It holds all that promise, the little black dress, and so much more. So enjoy the photos and from this girl to you, Happy New Year! xo
