d'être au 31 !

The last sentence, is the narrator really referring to age or is this an idiom? To be dressed up? for the New Year.

This question relates to:
French dictation exercise "Ma soirée du Nouvel An (B1)"

Hi Dragana,

It is an idiom :

Être / Se mettre sur son trente et un To be/To get dressed up to the nines 

I like this translation as it uses numbers too!

Hope this helps!
