Sparkle!

Mama and Husband are going out to our first holiday party of the season on Saturday night.  It's going to be fairly casual because it's at a friends house. But I'm so dying to throw on some sequins so I can get my sparkle on, but without looking like Rupaul in drag....know what I'm saying?


{this is nice, but no}

So I think I'll try to incorporate a bit of sequin shine while keeping things simple

{Ricki's draped sequin sweater}
{ok so my black pumps are not YSL like these, but the look is almost the same}
I'm thinking that since I can't go too bold on my outfit (no one wants to stand out as overdressed girl at the party), I might as well do a bit more with my makeup. I've just discovered that purple shadows are great for brown eyes. (This is not groundbreaking news but I was a bit scared of purple eyeshadows before.)

 purple smokey eyes are divine!



Do you have any Christmas parties coming up? Are they formal or casual and what will you be wearing?
And more importantly, will you be you rockin' some sequin sparkle?

All parties in my little village are casual casual casual, even the holiday ones. But, I will still throw on a bit of sparkle and some fab shoes. They're getting used to me being the frou frou girl in the corner and I would hate to disappoint them!

My goal in life is to look like Rupaul when I am 107 years old.

Just kidding.

That should be nobody's goal.

So far, I only have one to attend. It's casual, but I'll probably wear something similar to this.

Yes, yes absolutely! I'm all over sequins this season, in fact, I am wearing one right now at the office!

have fun and can't wait to see photos from the party!
