I’m definitely late to the party, jumping on the bandwagon (or however you’d like to say it) with the deluxe Gabby iridescent green sequin dress from Motel Rocks.
Other bloggers have been buying, wearing and posting about this dress for months now (in fact, it might even be years) and I only just got mine a few weeks back as a Christmas present.
See, I needed the perfect dress for NYE. I needed a dress that would be a knockout. I needed a dress that when I walked through the halls of the Atlantis hotel on The Palm in Dubai, people would stop, stare and say ‘wow’!
I knew how lucky I was to be able to spend NYE in Dubai in the first place (see my blog post about Dubai here) and I needed a dress that was worthy of the cause.
I purposefully chose the Gabby. It is sequins on luxe velvet with a plunge V back and just looks and feels like the ultimate party dress.
When I wore it for NYE, and when I wore it since for my work’s Christmas party, I felt like a celebrity. People would shower me with compliments and cries of ‘who are you wearing, who are you wearing?’!
As it’s such a stand-out dress, I had to keep the shoes and accessories minimal. I went for simple black wedges in Dubai with a black evening-style satin clutch.
I then added a bit of additional sparkle (you can never have too much sparkle on NYE) with silver drop-down earrings and black and silver rings that were the height of bling.
Hair-wise and make-up wise, I glammed it up to the max. I put curls in my hair and used purple eyeshadow and lipstick for the maximum amount of impact (see my blog post on the lipstick here).
It’s not often that I feel confident on a night out, but maaannn did I feel good on NYE… And I have the Gabby dress to thank for that! Thank you, Motel Rocks!
