The Crystal Avenue

Meet me on the Crystal Avenue

Midnight Rendezvous

Happy New Years Eve, everyone!

With one day remaining, “Midnight Rendezvous” is my last look of 2014 on the Crystal Avenue. I went to the city of angels roughly two weeks ago, and visited the Grove to check out the Christmas festivities and to shop. I stopped by TopShop and fell in love with their petite d-ring playsuit that was hand picked by my sister Michelle. What I love about the playsuit is the fit, the elegant details, and the overall simplicity. Although some may say the playsuit is very minimalistic, I believe you do not have to wear an extravagant piece to make a statement. All you need is your confidence to look and feel your best in every outfit.

Since I may be wearing “Midnight Rendezvous” for New Years Eve, I chose to wear a red lip, a few accessories, and black strappy heels from Dailylook. As expressed in my previous post “Christmas Time,” wearing a red lipstick always adds in glamour and boldness to a look. Hence why not wear a bold lip color to bring in the new year? For my accessories, I added my navy snowflake earrings, rose gold watch, and my array of gold and silver rings to play against the monochromatic look. More pictures below:

I wanted to conclude this post with a brief message as the end of the year is a time for self-reflection and recollection of experiences in 2014. As I contemplate momentarily on the highs and lows of this year, 2014 has definitely been one crazy year filled with adventures, heavy heart to heart discussions, and life changing events. I am not certain if it is because I am older now or if anyone else feels this way, but 2014 also flew by quickly. When I recollect on a few days earlier this year, they all felt like it was yesterday even though they occurred months ago. Looking back, even with the year on hyper mode, I enjoyed and absorbed in the good times and reminded myself to look the positive side during the bad times. With that said, I am thankful for all the experiences, moments, friendships, and opportunities that came my way in 2014. I know I am still fairly new to the blogger sphere, but I just wanted to thank you all for enjoying and supporting the Crystal Avenue. Cheers to the New Year and what is to come on the Crystal Avenue! I will see you all in 2015. Have a great New Year!
