Holiday Shine

The original plan was to create a gift guide, but with Christmas less than a week away and other holidays having passed, let's move on the next best thing, shall we?

Shopping for ourselves!

New Year's Eve is around the corner, along with any other holiday gatherings requiring festive sparkles and other shiny things. Sequins for daytime have recently been approved by the stylish powers that be (just keep it low-key to avoid looking like the Time's Square ball), and I for one couldn't be more excited.

Let's start with nails, the easiest and least expensive wardrobe update to hit this trend.

Decorating my ridiculously festive nails is celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann's "Superstar," a hot brown gel with copper glitter flakes. If this color isn't your style, lucky for you, Deborah happens to be the queen of glitter polishes.

Next up, the blindingly shiny mini dress. Can you imagine hitting the party circuit in this?

I haven't stepped foot in a Forever 21 in ages, but I might make an exception for this puppy:
Forever 21 twinkling sequins party dress, $25 at Forever 21

Ditch the LBD standby for this sequined bandage dress:
Arden B chiffon sequin one-shoulder dress, $35 (was $98) at Arden B
Finally.. shoes. Parade around town in these:

Or slip into these colorful flats:

And there you have it! Shine on, party people. Shine on.
