The end of the year is finally here, and the age-old question prevails: “What are your plans for New Year’s?” While the Dream team is already set with plans for the big night, with celebrations at all of our venues like PHD Rooftop Lounge, Fishbowl, and Beauty & Essex, there’s a second question that’s just as important: “What are you wearing?” We tapped into the closet of one of our favorite NYC influencers, Courtney Seaman of Mimosas & Manhattan, to prepare for the celebration and get her advice for ringing in 2019.
What are your rules of thumb for getting dressed and ready for New Year’s Eve?
I always say the more sparkles and sequins, the better! It is the one day of the year you can really get away with this dress code and you should take advantage of it. I always try to be more daring and find something super unique and different.
What are you wearing this New Year’s Eve?
I am in between a few different choices! An aqua velvet suit (it looks better than it sounds, I swear), a hot pink maxi dress, and a sequin jumpsuit. However, two of my friends have already called me asking for whichever I do not wear!
What are your favorite things to do in New York around the holidays and New Year’s?
New York City is such a fairytale this time of year. Every corner is lit up and you can just feel the energy of the city. One of my favorite things is just going to different restaurants and bars in the city. Each restaurant is lit up with decorations and Christmas trees. They’re all so cozy!
What are your New Year’s resolutions?
This 2019 I am pledging to a healthier lifestyle. I am leaving 2018 on a really good note in terms of going to the gym, trying out different workout classes, and eating healthier. I’m hoping that continues into the new year. My other resolution is not to take Uber and Lyft rides as often, and if I need to, do a pool or Lyft line. Finally, I want to travel more. I haven’t been to Europe since college, so I’m definitely trying to get back there.
