'Tis the season the SPARKLE and SHINE

I love looking at clothes this time of year.  Everything sparkles, shines and looks so elegant.  You can spot sparkles on skirts, tops, jackets, belts and scarfs.  I like to look festive during the holiday season also but I also need to be aware of what is appropriate for business casual.  I love a sequins skirt as much as the next girl, but I realize that is not appropriate to wear to the office (no matter how quirky you are).  Today I've come up with some ways to add that festive sparkle and shine to your business attire without going overboard.

Here's what I came up with:

  1. The first black dress just has some simple studding on it but it adds a little sparkle to this black dress. 
  2. The next is a brocade blazer with some black slacks which adds some elegance and shimmer to the workday.  
  3. The shimmery gold blouse would look great with slacks or a pencil shirt.  The green sparkle sweater definitely shines but it's not over the top and the simple jeweled neckline on the black blouse looks very classy.  
  4. The silver tank is a great piece to wear to work and transition into a night out on the town for drinks or dinner.  Pair it with a jacket or cardigan at work with some slacks then for the evening take off the jacket, change into some jeans and some strappy heels or suede booties and add some sparkly jewelry and a great clutch and you're ready for a night out.
  5. Don't forget that accessories like a necklace, scarf or belt can add the right amount of sparkle and shine to an otherwise ordinary outfit.
Dressing for the holiday season can be fun whether you are heading to the office, a holiday party, or casual family celebration.  'Tis the season to sparkle and shine!!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!


  1. Hi Becca! I found your blog via Pinterest. I'm starting graduate school in January so I'm looking to amp up my wardrobe a bit. I love the first dress in this post - the clothes are fun without being gaudy or over the top! I look forward to exploring your blog more.

  2. The best fashion designers of the country are working extremely hard all the time in giving saree an outstanding gorgeous fashionable look. The designer sarees are very gorgeous. They are crafted in a variety of fabrics like silk, cotton, chiffon, georgette etc. Each of these fabrics has their own specialities and qualities. The Designer Sarees are also amazingly worked by high quality stone works, zari works, moti works, art works, handworks, embroidery works, printed works etc giving them a brilliant look like no other dress in the country.
