Dallasbelle Rule #8:

Never wear a bright red dress to a winter wedding; doesn’t matter if the wedding is in Texas where the weather ranges from 75 and 45 degrees. You’ll look like a damn creeper in the background of all of the wedding pictures.

Guilty.

Even better- the photographer said he got plenty pictures of me doing the robot, the running man and a few other moves that haven’t been named yet. Going to die…

XOXO,

Bringing in 2012 the Right Way

New Year’s Eve: What’s a better excuse for an extravagant night out on the town, as if being young and single in Dallas isn’t enough? NYE is one of the few nights of the year that girls can buy a fun dress and rock dramatic make up and guys can wear fedoras. No, I’m not talking about Halloween. Yes, fedoras should be limited to be worn on this one night of the year unless you’re Britney Spears.

Here are a few tips for looking good, having fun, and being safe while bringing in the new year:
Sequence aren’t just necessary, they are essential this year. Good riddance, rhinestones!
You won’t look like a drag queen if you go for the dramatic eyes and bold lips look, I promise.
Absolutely no flats! Hell, I’m 5’7″ and will be wearing at least 4″ heels.
If you’re single, go out with your fellow single girls. Let’s be honest, it is hard to mingle and get a few free drinks if you’re with your guy friends.
If you are in a relationship, go out with couples. There’s no need to emphasize on that topic…
Don’t skip your pre NYE meal just because your dress is a little tight. You will regret it. (That’s Drinking 101)
Typically when you drink, you dance, which can be embarrassing the day after when you are looking a your night’s pics. Please don’t pull a Snooki, dancing against a glass wall. Yikes…

I assume boys need a few tips as well:
Pin stripe suits were made for mafia/gang related movies, and white shoes with black pants or jeans don’t go together. (stereotype fashion tip… Had to do it!)
If you see a girl that you want to introduce yourself to, buy her what she’s drinking. Study your bitch drinks so you can master this. Vodka waters w/ lemon, Vodka sodas, skinny Margaritas on the rocks and Michelob Ultras are going to be your most common bitch drinks.
If you are more of a ‘shot buyer’, buy a round of shots to include her friends. Buying one girl a shot or two just conveys the wrong message.
The way you talk to your bartender and interact with the strangers around you reveals a lot about you to people watchers. I’m definitely a people watcher.
It IS okay for guys to dance like Pauly D. and Vinny. I know you are relieved after reading that! Haha… It’s fun and shows that you like to have fun.

Most important tip:
Be safe and DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE!
It usually isn’t hard to find a cab in Dallas, but you might have to help out that person who didn’t read dallasbelle.com and is passing out on the curb at 2AM. Call the Tipsy Tow for them. 1-800-AAA-HELP.
