New Years Eve Looks

I scoured the web for the perfect New Years Eve dress to wear to Cipriani, an old bank near Grand Central, where me and some girl friends will be dancing the night away.  It was surprising difficult to find something that was suitable for the venue that wasn't covered in patches of cheap lace or mesh, or WAY too short. I would classify my style as sophisticated with a sexy edge which was what I searched for in a dress. Which one would you wear?

The BEST Winter Coat EVER.

Now that I live in a place where the temperature actually goes below 30 degrees, I knew it was time to invest in a "puffy" coat.  The question is, where can I find one for my under $200 budget that would keep me sufficiently warm? I didn't want one of those seemingly warm coats from Zara that looks nice and cozy but when it comes down to functionality it fails to protect from the harsh New York winds. I tried my luck at Uniqlo where I had seen a variety of puffy jackets in bright hues for a reasonable price.  My favorite thing about about this coat is that it is made with real down feather and the pockets are lined with fleece! My hands are always warm! I have to say that I am in love with this coat and wear it almost everyday and am never cold. Here is my amazing purchase that I secured for a mere $100!
