Where to Shop for NYE Outfits

New Year's Eve party outfits at 1137-B Santee Alley

We know how important it is to have the right amount of sparkle on New Year's Eve so we headed out to the alley today with only one thing in mind: SEQUINS! We're happy to report the alley is currently stocked with every sequined item imaginable. We found dresses, tops, pants, skirts, shorts, blazers, headbands, accessories, and even shoes. We've compiled a list of the stores with the most sequined items, but there is a lot more out there. Look for the store address in the caption. May your NYE outfit be the shiniest of them all!

LA Fashion District Holiday Giveaway

Our friends at the LA Fashion District are giving away $100 to one lucky winner as part of their #PayItForwardLA giveaway. As per their announcement...

Thank you to everyone who's been a part of Pay It Forward LA! We've had a lot of fun surprising our shoppers and the Fashion District community with free parking, paid purchases, gift cards, and lunch! We had originally planned a to do a giveaway for those who've been a part of the campaign, but we've had such a great response we've decided to extend it to everyone. And did we mention we're extending the campaign too? Our Safe Team Officers will continue to intercept shoppers at the meters and pay for your parking through Christmas!

Here's how the giveaway will work:

One lucky person will win $100 Visa Gift Card to spend on whatever their heart desires. To enter simply share your random act of kindness story - whether it's doing a good deed or spreading holiday cheer - using the hashtag "PayItForwardLA" on Twitter (@LAFashionDist), Instagram (@LAFashionDistrict) or Facebook. We will randomly select the winner on Thursday, December 26.
You don't have to complete the act of kindness yourself. It can be act you've witnessed and it doesn't need to involve money or making a purchase for someone else. It can be anything from helping someone cross the street or opening the door for a stranger, to helping your neighbor put up their Christmas lights. The goal is remind Los Angeles 'tis the season for kindness, and hopefully inspire someone to do something kind for someone else along the way.

Those of you who have already shared the hashtag will automatically be entered in the giveaway. Thanks for paying it forward!

The fine print: You must be at least 18 years of age. No purchase necessary. Only one entry per person.
