Hello everyone! I am trying to pick out a New Year's Eve dress. I don't know what I'm doing yet but it'll be nothing out of the ordinary--some kind of big club/party. I have been shopping online for dresses. My problem is that I am in the middle of having a tattoo on my shoulder removed. Finding a cute dress with sleeves is very, very difficult. I have only found one which I like but the problem is that I think its supposed to be a Christmas dress party. It is satin and comes in two colors--cherry red and evergreen. My shoes and clutch are metallic silver. I know that red would be fun enough but green looks much better on me. However, dark green is not an approporiate or festive color for a New Year's party, right? Should I get the red or the green that looks better on me? Thanks so much!

I think most people are still in Christmas spirit during new years eve. You could always buy a sleeveless dress and then wear something over top (dressy jacket/shrug) to cover your arms.

Like Any said, You may be able to cover that tattoo with make-up. Try to pad (no smudging)correctors over the tattoo if you can not achieve the effect, go to a cosmetic counter that specialize in Make-up, like MAC. They may be able to help you.
Good luck.

There's nothing "unfestive" about green! If that's a good color for you, go for it!
