My First Soiree
Tonight I’ll be attending Sleep No More’s New Year’s Soiree, which actually begins post-midnight (perfect for me, since I’ll be working until 11:30 and ringin’ in the New Year in the locker room).

Anonymous asked: Hello ever-talented Caroline! I need help finding a dress to wear to a wedding on New Years Eve. The atmosphere is going to be party-heavy, and most of my family will be there. I'd like to look classy, but not too formal. I'm a little top heavy, so something without a plunging neckline would be ideal. I can't seem to find anything that is winter wedding appropriate. Help?!...
Anonymous asked: Dear Caroline, I am a girl who never wears sequins or anything shiny but I want to for New Years Eve. Help! I want a great but relatively inexpensive shiny dress to ring in 2012 with, and am more than a little lost for where to start. I know you can help! (Waist-defined is preferable, open back is great.) Thank you, dear!

If Only In My Dreams
What is coming home for the holidays for, if not to remind you that home doesn’t really exist anymore? Or, if it does, it is the tiny apartment you have decorated for yourself, with the slanting floors and running toilet and all the dishes in the sink. Coming home, you discover a new homesickness that exhausts you, and spend half the time napping in a twin bed that was never yours. The tree...

What I Did With (The Rest Of!) My Day
