I can’t believe the year is almost over! Where did 2013 go? I haven’t even decorated the house yet but I did get some shopping done (click here for some stylish gift ideas ) and I do have something to wear for New Year’s (Christmas is at home and I plan to proudly sport some comfy sweats and a ugly christmas sweater). I always go all out on New Year’s and wear a pretty dress – it’s not often I get to do it so I take full advantage of it. This year I can’t really take it to the max but I do love the dress I will be wearing. When I do go all out I try to stay away from the typical gaudy dresses that I see all over the place for New Year’s. I look for pieces that are fun, flirty and more importantly something I can wear more than once. Below are some fabulous dresses all perfect for New Year’s for under $50.

Update: The winner of the $200 Lulu*s giftcard is Migdalia – @MsLatina with the following comment: “I love this Shift dress. I think it would look great with slim jeans!
While I tend to shy away from bright, bold colors and gravitate towards gray, black or beige, this season I’m totally smitten with all things bright (picture a modern, more sophisticated spin on the 80’s neon trend). Best of all I’m lovin how easy it is to incorporate “happy colors” into any outfit, on any occasion, via accessories, scarves and even shoes. Tip: keep the outfit simple and let the color do all the work. Same goes for accessories – for a more reserved take on the trend, pair it with basics like a blazer or favorite jeans. Check out some of my favorite bright picks for this season from Lulu’s and how you can win a $200 Lulu’s gift card to get your brights!

Reese Witherspoon just announced she’s pregnant and I can’t wait to see how she incorporates her baby bump with her fab style! Love how she mixed tall suede boots, a basic black pull over and a dainty flowered skirt in this picture. It’s a great transitional outfit and easy to recreate on your own (not to mention perfect for expectant moms!). Tip: don’t skimp on the sweater; it’s a classic staple and worth the investment. Get Reese’s look for less from Old Navy, Shop Ruche and more!

The Neon Buddha eco-chic fashion collection is perfect for all of summer’s activities – from work to weekend to vacation! These pieces are super bright and colorful and add that extra bit of personality to any wardrobe. Each piece is made of super soft, pre-shrunk material and available in a color palette of 16 bright colors including Perky Pink, Retro Turquoise, Funky Lime and Village Sage.
Now the eco-chic part! Each piece in this collection is handcrafted of 100% super soft, pre-shrunk cotton by 500 women in Thailand, thereby affording them opportunities to better their way of life while doing what they love. In addition, the company’s new 100,000 sq ft Green dye house uses one-tenth of the water and one-quarter of the energy used in traditional cotton dyeing. Also, by incorporating the latest technology into its water treatment facility, the facility emits no pollution from the plant and recycles discharged water by transferring it to neighboring rice fields. The company also donates one percent of global sales in order to effect the mobilization of communities to make the world a better place in which to live and support the health and well-being of thousands through the Mae Tao Clinic and funding disadvantaged women to start their own business through the Mirror Foundation.

We’ve all heard the saying, “it’s what’s on the inside that counts.” The expression could never be more true when it comes to your outfit. Bra’s, for example, are just as important as the outfit and can make a world of a difference in the way a dress or top fits you. The right size bra not only provides a smooth and sleek look for any outfit, but also gives you that extra vibe of sexy underneath. Whether you’re looking for a strapless bra, convertible bra or even
