Shop: Sparkle & Sequins

I might love my plaid, but this time of year, I just can't get enough sequins! Nothing screams 'holiday' more to me than the sparkle of a sequin (or the lush look of velvet...but that's for another post). Honestly, I wear sequins practically all year, just in varying degrees of glitz and glam. Come holiday time, the bolder the better, so break out those sparkly pants and jackets ladies. They're all fair game. 20121219-185805.jpg

Oh hello Marc by Marc Jacobs. This crazy mix of prints and sequins is a Blossum/Punky Brewster mash-up.

Shop: For the Love of Plaid

After 12 years of enduring polyester plaid uniform skirts during my formative years you would think the last thing I would want in my wardrobe is more plaid. Alas, I can't seem to get enough of it. If you've read this blog for any amount of time, it's no secret how much I love Burberry. It all started with that plaid. This weekend I saw a black watch plaid cape at Old Made Good and I can't stop thinking about it. It's the exact plaid I wore all through high school but I don't care. I think I need that cape. From shirts, to pants, to more jackets I've seen so much plaid it's becoming a full on obsession. And I have a soft spot for all that plaid mixed with other prints. I vividly remember wearing paisley (it was the 80's after all), stripes or polka dots with all that tartan goodness. I basically treated that uniform skirt like a neutral back then, and that's what you should do now.

Here are some of my favorites...
