New Year's Eve is one of my favorite holidays because I have so many happy memories associated with the night. The last few years I've celebrated it more low key, but before that I did NYE in Times Square, NYE in Las Vegas, NYE in Miami, and NYE in Aruba (that was 2007, when I made the wild decision to be a vegetarian). I love the build up and focus on a new, untouched year. At the same time, sometimes with so much energy and focus going in to one night, it can be a let down. I think it's best to approach NYE like you would approach a first date- ready to have fun but not necessarily needing or depending on a perfect situation to have fun. I'm heading to Austin to celebrate with my best friend Katy, and we plan to join a few friends at a party at the W. I even went so far as to order a few Rent the Runway outfit options for the evening- a black Rachel Zoe jumpsuit and a Parker red and black knit dress, depending on my mood. Of course I love any excuse to dress up, but New Years always puts me in the mood to wear gold or black.
