last week, instead of writing papers and being a diligent student, i chose to spend about two to three hours online trying to find a dress for NYE (still don't know what i'm doing) with only one goal in mind: NO BLACK DRESSES. i also want to rule out anything with sequins because if i take that route, i'll wind up wearing that dress only once and it won't be worth it. then i just strayed away from NYE dresses and found some dresses that i just want to have anyway. but my favorite time of the year comes in about a week: bring it on, after-christmas sales. i'm ready.
