Crush: Holiday Sparkle

Sequins are a holiday necessity. Work parties, gatherings with friends and family, NYE.. I can’t think of a better excuse to prance around in sparkles.  There is however, a fine line between looking like a million bucks and looking like a super cheap (dare I say white trash) version of yourself when dressing in embellished material.  Here are my hints for adding some shine to your holiday dressing:1. Quality is king. Invest in a piece you can wear multiple ways, getting your worth out of it during the season. (Read: if you buy it for $14.99, people will know you bought it for $14.99.)
2. Take care of your goods! Make sure you follow the cleaning and care instructions to a T!
3. One bold item per ensemble. Do not, do not, go overboard. No need to look like an arts and crafts store exploded on you.

Here are some of my faves, with just a hint of sparkle to very bold (just have a glass of champagne before you leave the house)!
