Here's your chance to celebrate New Year's again- and this time you won't feel obligated to pile on the sparkle. After all, even though Russell Simmons and Chanel Iman will be in attendance, so will trays of unassuming soup dumplings. Wear these up-and-coming designers to ensure that you get passed all the apps and drinks you can handle.
Lay off the jewelry and accessorize with a big, clunky-in a good way!-watch from Uniform Wares that serves as a reminder that time passes ridiculously quickly.
Invest in a smokin' red dress now- in leather, no less, from West Coast wunderkind Jenni Kayne- for happiness in the coming year. Then revisit it in a couple of weeks for good ol' V'day.
God knows your ankles will be swollen after all that soy sauce, so opt for an easy-to-wear bootie from one of the buzziest shoe companies in town, Dieppa Restrepo.
Stash your cash in the bunny bag that Ecco Domani designer Mandy Coon made especially for Of a Kind, and get ready to ring in the year of the rabbit.
