Nurse, Raquel Reyes dress by Rubber Ducky that I purchased at a boutique in The Bronx in Fordham Road called Rush. This boutique is the only place in the Bronx in when I shop here, I feel like I am shopping in the stores in Soho. You will find many great finds here.
“I chose this dress bc it had the sequined feel most NYE dresses should have but with a burst of colors that many people don’t often wear. The lace as well complemented the dress perfectly. Also, the low cut towards the front gave it that sexiness I was looking for.”

Accountant, Sioney Tomlinson:
I wore a “Zara Collection” sequin dress. I chose this beautiful short black and green dress because it oozed “elegance, sexiness, and style”. Sequin is also perfect for a special night like NYE. I knew that I wanted to sparkle so my dress had to be shiny.
