Part 1: Countdown To New Years Eve – Let’s Get Sparkly!

Hq.SparkleLogo_Clr copy


Who else is in complete shock that it’s already November!? I can’t believe how fast this year has sped by, it’s crazy! I remember doing last year’s New Year’s Eve post like it was just yesterday! I went glam with a floor length strapless Bebe gown, but this year I want to sex it up a bit and go short and flirty. 

One look I’m really loving is the classic sequin LBD (little black dress). Sequin dresses are so effortless and New Year’s Eve is a time of celebration, so why not sparkle your night away? Above, I’m wearing a Nicole Miller,  MeChar clutch and strappy black heels (not pictured).

Here are my favorite sequined dresses online right now:

    You are absolutely too sassy in that dress girl, I love it. My friend actually have dress #10 and wore it for her birthday and I have that dress as well in a Champaign. I wore it for New Years. Great picks

    So glad you decided to highlight the sequin material. It’s my absolute fave texture! So versatile, so vibrant, so elegant! You did it justice.
