sequin pantsWhen I think of all the new and inventive ways I will wear my sequin pants this season, my excitement equals that of a little kid in a candy store. But coordinating a look around a statement’y sequin piece could be tricky which is why I styled two outfit ideas for you based off of items from this post. We typically gravitate towards pairing stand-out pieces with something basic because (we think) the ensemble needs grounding. But why not push the envelope with some added “holiday” bells and whistles? It’s a party time of year, after all. Here are two examples of how to enhance your look, while still being tasteful. Live on the edge. You can be safe the other eleven months of the year.

Happy shopping and Thanksgiving! xx jenny

shiny happy people

shiny happy peopleI’m a total sucker for anything with holiday bling, but there’s only a small window of “appropriate” time to wear it (think now through January).  With thanksgiving around the corner – peak season for glitz and glam is about to pop off.  I can already hear the jingle bells jingling (literally).  Here are a few cute and affordable sparkly options, each under $100!  No need to break the bank on seasonal styles with little wearability.  One or two items in your closet will suffice to pull a holiday party ensemble together in a snap.

Style tip:  Save your pennies for the classics!
