Ok... listen. I know we haven't made it to Thanksgiving yet but I get a hall pass here. In retail we've gotta work ahead to give you all time to shop certain collections ahead of time and you've gotta shop this next one!
I am SO EXCITED about this New Year's Eve collection launch!!
I LOVE all things Holiday and New Year's Eve! It's my favorite time of the year and gives us all more than a few excuses to get fancy! Lucky for you all our Moments to Midnight collection has you covered!
We curated looks in this collection towards not only the big countdown to midnight on NYE, but also for Holiday parties!
You'll find something for every occasion and every taste in this collection! We've dropped some serious fire for ladies looking for head turning outfits but also provided more conservative options too! Sequins... no sequins... deep gorgeous shades of wine and greens for Holiday parties... this collection has it!
What I'm MOST excited about in this collection is sequin blazers and kimonos! For the past few years when we work on this holiday party collection we've searched high and low for a good sequin blazer option and there just weren't any out there with our brands... this year we found SO MANY and we are pumped about it!
I could bore you all with more words but I'm going to skip to the good stuff this time.....
Without further hesitation enjoy this blog exclusive sneak peek of Moments to Midnight collection that launches at midnight CST on shop.lushfashionlounge.com!!

We broke this collection into 2 photo shoots! The first shoot was at The Caliber in Automobile Alley. We were absolutely BLOWN AWAY by this place and were so grateful for the opportunity to shoot there! This spot is absolutely breath taking and full of amazing things. Of course, the highlight of the shoot was their gorgeous cat! He definitely received tons of love this day!
Many thanks to the Salyers for allowing us to invade their space for a day! Also big thanks to a dear friend, Kindt Stephen Myers, with Kindt Events and my dear friend Seth Lewis for coordinating and assisting with this!
Kindt and Seth also both assisted on our second shoot location at Mickey Mantle's Steakhouse downtown. It's seriously one of my favorite restaurants. Huge thank you for having us!
Beau Brand, of Brand Imaging, and our creative director, Matt Farthing, shot this collection together and the result was AMAZING. These two are so fun to work with and when they shoot together we get SO many awesome shots! I can't say enough good things about both of them!
Here are few of my favorite shots by Matt.
Here are some of my favorite shots captured by Beau.

So much work went into this New Years Eve clothing collection! I am so thankful for our creative team for brainstorming with my vision to help pull this together! Leslie Camp, Myranda Stout, Rylee Tubree, Kristen Giroux, Matt Farthing, and Kaylee Yeager!
This shoot was styled by myself, Kristen Giroux, Rylee Tubre, and Kaylee Yeager.
As always thanks to our friends at Lifesquire for assisting in rounding up the perfect props and last minute ins and outs to pull this shoot together!
Special shoutout to a new male model you see here! Kenny Wooldridge swung by and helped us out for a bit! Everyone check out his new venture just down the street from us.... Coffee Jerks!
Last but certainly not least thank you to our girls for modeling! As I always like to mention in my blogs, every girl you see in our photos works in our store or warehouse location! They truly are the sweetest, best bunch of girls and I love that our customers can connect with them in store and get to know them!
