These are our last outfits of 2016! And although our Bisou NYE celebrations will be quiet this year, Chloe Bisou and I couldn’t resist getting dressed up one last time to bid 2016 farewell.
You could say, we’re all dressed up with nowhere to go… which aptly describes the story of our lives- ha!
I am a person who normally loves change and happily welcomes a new year. I approach every January with a refreshed attitude and renewed sense of motivation. This year however, as I send 2016 off (with a one finger salute to be more accurate), I also look to the horizon of 2017 with trepidation.
I remain unsure of how I feel about the condition of our world… our country… our state… our neighborhood…and how I fit into it.
What I do know however, is that I’m forever grateful for many things in my life, namely…
…My pets who shower me with more love than I deserve at times.
….My husband who remains my greatest ally and best friend.
….My mom & sisters whose support has gotten me through some of my darkest days.
….My friends, who daily restore my faith in humanity (a lot of them are actually from Instagram & Twitter– you know who you are & we love you!).
I couldn’t have made it through 2016 with these peeps!!! And so, I tiptoe into 2017 grateful, but with heightened caution.
The other thing I know: that Chloe Bisou looks ADORBS in her black cherry ball gown. Also, dressing in sequins, lace, and tulle is the perfect way to conclude the holidays and say byyyyyyyyyye to 2016!
We hope that everyone has fun and safe celebrations this evening to ring in 2017. See you all next year!
