Sparkle Season

If the shimmering body wash and glittery nail polish weren't enough for you, here are some more fabulous finds for celebrating the holidays in style. Keep in mind that the sparkle chic looks its best during this time of year, so if there was ever a perfect time to splurge on the shimmer- it's now!

(Pictured above, the shining platinum Zsa Zsa Jeweled Jack Rogers from the Rusty Crickett, $148)

But my favorite way to add shimmer? Jewelry. And today while doing some Christmas shopping, I stumbled across some wonderful finds from the Flirties Collection, all at the fabulous RC.
Flirties Bracelet, $22.99.

Flirties Earrings, $18.

I've given a few pairs of these earrings as gifts, and in reference to the last post, they're such an excellent stocking stuffer!

Holiday Attire

Christmastime is here; We can feel it when we emerge from our toasty homes into the blustery Floridian Winter wind, and then again when we sprint back to our cars, cranking the seat warmer buttons into full swing once again. I know- it's pathetic to Northerners. But hey, you'd probably perish in the Floridian summer so it's even.

More cold = More layers = More clothes. I've probably repeated this line at least six times every morning. More to convince myself, probably, than others, but true nonetheless. Most importantly, however, are the ensembles we're donning for our holiday festivities. I've decided to assemble some possibilities for you, either to serve as inspiration or to add to your holiday wish list. You are so welcome!

Shady Lady

I must admit I'm a sucker for the classic chic, but it does a fashionista good to dip her wardrobe in the Wild Side every once in while (and vice-versa). Don't get me wrong, owning a "signature look" is empowering! It shows that you have honed the controlled skill of picking out things that coordinate with the rest of your wardrobe in the clothing department, instead of frantically snatching up random assortments of fashion catastrophes. You know what looks good, and you know where to find it.

But never fall into the category where everyone else knows what you're going to wear, too. It is possible to channel your favorite look consistently without being predictable.

Which brings me back to Point A: Take a dip in the Wild Side.
Punching up your wardrobe with pieces that keep it fresh and current isn't difficult. I've been trying to employ my own advice, and find some sunglasses that have a classic look, but still contain that bit of an edge.

Et Voila! Cat eye sunglasses. Now to find the perfect pair...

Marilyn; Secretary Style
Olivia Palermo
Them Tom Fords on the right are fierce.
Prada is fabulous.

I apologize for your new obsession.

But not really, because a passion for fashion is such a great thing.
