New Years Eve is next week and that means parties and ritzy dresses. The Drowning In Cocktails Dress from the Disco Killer line by subculture fashion staples Lip Service, is the perfect NYE dress. Sequins and puffed shoulders make it current and glamorous, the mesh contrast and deep v-neck with back strap are a bit cyber and sci-fi making it unique, and the simple overall shape make it comfortable and appropriate for multiple settings. Hop from fancy cocktail party, to club night, to after-hours apartment party with this dress. With a change of shoes, hosiery, or jewelry or the addition/subtraction of a waist clincher or hair accessory, this dress can transform throughout the night as needed.

From the Industrial Vice Division, Lip Service gives you the Pray To Me dress, in the “Looks That Kill” style group. Even though the Pray To Me dress is not being featured as a costume on their website, I would recommend this awesome nun look for Halloween. If you want to give the costume a creative twist, pair the nun outfit with some zombie make up for a ghoulish alternative.
