Dress of the Week: Rivini Feathered Mini + New Year’s Eve Style Inspiration Board

We don’t know about the rest of you, but with the release of our winter/spring 2012 issue just around the corner (peep the new cover here!) and New Year’s Eve just a few days away, we’re feeling rather festive right about now. So it should come as no surprise that our pick for this week’s top frock, and our accompanying style inspiration board, was inspired by NYE and all things celebratory—think Champagne, sparkles, and bling.

Meet ‘Lola’ by Rivini–this strapless mini, featuring feathers and layers of organza discs, first shimmied down the Rivini runway during the fall 2012 bridal fashion shows in NYC, and we’ve been enamored ever since.

Wouldn’t this dress be perfect for a New Year’s Eve bride or to wear during your wedding’s cocktail hour? So flirty, so fun.

Whether you’re planning NYE nuptials or are just in need of a little style inspiration for when the clock strikes midnight, we’re loving accessories in shades of gold, silver, purple and black—with plenty of glitter, sparkle, and shine—to pair with your LWD or LBD.
