Like a mirror ball in a disco....

Holiday glam time is here and for parties I'm all about adding a bit of sparkle or shine with sequins. I'm happy to see that sequins are back for another season and when they're worn properly they can totally complete your holiday look. Last year I maintained a brief love affair with black sequin leggings, which sadly I only felt comfortable wearing when we went out in Vegas to club XS at Encore.  It's a bold look, you can't just wear shiny, sparkly pants anywhere. Or can you?

{Sequin leggings work here in the club, sadly almost nowhere else}

Still, I'm loving these dresses and jackets. They scream "it's New Years Eve, I will have another glass of champagne!"

{perfection, head to toe}


{Lurve this Nanette Lepore dress with black tights and pumps}

{I wouldn't be pairing this jacket with washed out 90's jeans, but that's just me...} 

 A sparkly sequin tux jacket or blazer can totally dress up skinny jeans or a plain LBD

Would you wear sequins this Holiday season, or should they be reserved for trips to Vegas only?

i love sequins and dressing up too. unfortunately, i never have anywhere to wear them. i've always wished i worked somewhere that did a big holiday party, that would be the perfect occassion.

ps: i LOVE the nannette lepore dress. and those spindly legs that go with it.

Love the Nannette dress also! I have snatched up ALOT of sequin pieces from J Crew that look great with jeans or dressed up.

I'd totally wear sequins. I haven't touched them in years because all of my sequined dance costumes I wore when I was younger (and I wore a LOT) dug into my skin and it hurt but I have decided to give them another try! I love that sequined blazer by the way. So yes, wear sequins this holiday season, go for it! (Even those sequined pants!)

I saw a silver sequined skirt that I'd totally rock with some black tights and the right top. Well, I'd wear it if I had somewhere to go.
