Champagne and Sequins - It's New Year's!

It's nearly the New Year and that means it's time to break out the champagne and all the sequins and shimmer. I'm not one to shy away from sequins. I wear them year round, but this time of year, if I want to wear a sequin pencil skirt to work (or my accountant's holiday party) then I get slightly less crazy looks then when I wear a sequin shirt in June.

Holiday Party Dresses

I promise I have holiday standards. I let Halloween and Thanksgiving have their due before breaking out the Christmas tree. When it comes to prepping for all of those holiday parties however, there's nothing wrong with getting a little head start. I'm sequin, leather and velvet obsessed, so the minute a chill hits the air, I'm breaking out my first sequins of the season. I'm also having a party dress moment and I've seen so many fun dresses that I'm ready to hit the party circuit. This black and white stripe fit and flare dress might just be my very favorite. I'm usually one who likes to pile on the accessories, but this dress makes a statement on its own. I wanted to keep it simple so I opted for a bib necklace and the most kitschy Kate Spade champagne bottle clutch.

How To Wear It: Happy New Year!

Whether you're hitting the town, heading to a friend's house or hosting the party yourself tonight, it's time to break out those sequins. I love Parker's deco-inspired sequin dress and even though this dress doesn't need a whole lot of extra why not glam it up with some rhinestones and a bright bag. Happy New Year! See you in 2013.  

Happy New Year!
