New Year's Outfits & Kushyfoot Review


I may need your help with this one!  I can't decide what I want to wear for New Year's!  My husband and I actually have a babysitter for the night, so we get our first night out since we had Paige almost 2 years ago!  (We've had date days, but always came back before her bedtime),  I am beyond excited... and a little nervous that I won't even be able to stay up until midnight.  Ladies, I have become such an old lady!  I am in bed by 10pm....11 at the latest, and I'm grumpy the next day.

Anyway, back to the outfits!  We have no idea what we are doing yet, so it's a bit of a challenge picking something to wear.  I know I would like to wear a dress or skirt because I don't get out much and would like to dress up for the occasion.  And there HAS to be sparkle...because, come on, it's New Year's!!  The first outfit I put together are pieces that I've had for quite a while.
 Outfit option #2 is the dressier option, because go big or go home, right?  I actually won this dress from a giveaway over at Style Cusp!  It is a dress from French Connection and you can find it HERE.  I tried red lipstick for the first time too...and I'm not sure how I feel about it.
Now let me tell you about this amazing company called Kushyfoot.  I was recently contacted by Lipton Publicity Inc. to review a few of Kushyfoot's products.  I am LOVING the fashion tights that they sent me (found HERE).  How cute are they with these two outfits?!  The great part about these tights is that they have a massaging sole, so as you are killing your feet in those uncomfortable heels all night, they are offering a little bit of relief.  I am normally a little worried about textured socks/tights being uncomfortable but they really helped to cushion my feet.

Another amazing product that they sent me were the "Flats to Go".  I can't believe how comfortable these things are!  They come in a very convenient small package that could easily fit into your purse.  You know, for the days that you wear those heels that eat your feet all night.  Toward the end of the night, when you absolutely can't stand your heels for a second longer, these flats would be a lifesaver.  The flats also have a textured zig zag pattern on the sole to massage your sore feet.  Right now they come in 4 different styles: Patent (in 3 different colors), Snake print, Alligator print (pictured below, found HERE), and leopard print.  I will definitely be bringing these along on New Year's because my feet aren't used to heels anymore.
They also sent me Fleece Trouser socks and knee highs, but I haven't gotten a chance to try them out yet.  I am really excited to give them a try.  The Fleece Trouser socks are so soft inside and would definitely keep your feet warmer in the cold winter months.

Most Kushyfoot products retail for $7.99 as a 2 pair set. Flats to Go retail for $9.99. You can purchase Kushyfoot products from their website.

So which outfit do you think I should pick?  Have you ever tried Kushyfoot?

  3. I had never actually heard of them either until they contacted, but I am really impressed with how comfortable their products are. And thank you so much! I don't think I have ever owned such a nice dress before (other than my wedding dress). It's even prettier in person! Thanks for stopping by!

  24. Girl PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE wear the dress! It was beyond made for you! I just love it!!! And tell me - do the tights make your shoes fit tighter at all? It sounds intriguing! Thanks for sharing! Carylee | more pieces of me

  27. I LOVE those heels! Both outfits definitely have the sparkle that I was going for! I hope you have a great New Year's too!

    ReplyDelete
  28. hahaha!! I'm almost positive I am going with that dress! It's just so gorgeous! Oh and the tights didn't actually make my heels fit any tighter at all. The textured material is so thin, but somehow still makes a world of difference

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yeah, my feet are definitely not used to being in heels anymore so I'm not sure how long I will last in them, so those flats are such a great idea. I'm so glad they contacted me about them. Perfect timing!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I don't think I've ever owned such a nice dress (other than my wedding dress, of course!). I'm almost positive that is the outfit for New Year's. I love all of the beaded detail.

  31. Thank you so much Charnele! I can't wait to wear it out tomorrow

  34. I was just contacted by Kushyfoot about reviewing the products so I hope I can try them out for myself! Those tights are just gorgeous and flats to go would be so helpful! I know it's after New Years but I absolutely LOVE that dress!! It looks stunning on you!

  35. Thank you so much! I love that dress! I can't believe how well it fits. I was really nervous about buying it online without getting to try it on. You will love Kushyfoot! They are so comfy! I just wore the fleece lined knee highs in my boots when it got super cold and they kept my feet so warm.
