dear you...shine like a crystal

Shimmer in 2013!
ONE by Faubourg du Temple Twill Jacket with Sequin Sleeves + camilla and marc Great Fear Jacket / Vest in Bronze / Black + Juicy Couture Palladium Brocade Blazer in Gold Metallic + Blaque Label Long Studded Jacket in Navy + ONE by Maloom Blue Sequins Jacket in Blue + La Fee Verte Justine Disco Blazer in Gold

Once the holidays have come and gone, I, for one, have a very difficult time separating myself from the world of sparkle. For those few brief weeks flanking Christmas and New Year’s, we are served sequins, glitter, and glistening paillettes on a silver platter; only to have them torn away from us and tucked up for the following year all too soon - a subtle thievery synonymous with being offered a mug of hot cocoa that lacks both frothy whipped cream and melting marshmallows. I have found just one solution to the problem…the addition of brilliant {and downright chic} cover-ups that mask themselves as a casual essential yet keep us shimmering from day to night; year beginning to year end.

Slip an ultra-sporty spangled varsity piece on with cutoff denim shorts and ankle boots for an effortless, model-off-duty look; or toss a gilded brocade design over a pair of black skinnies and a plain white tee to dress up a casual girls' night out style. Just be prepared to turn heads...after all, no one can resist the shining power of a crystal.

I couldn't agree more, just when I started having fun with glitter and sequins, the holiday season was over. So sad :))

I like the gold blazer on the right the best. It can go with almost anything I reckon.

Love the one in the middle. Subtle enough for work, but shimmery enough to stand out.

Very true. "No one can resist the shining power of a crystal". A nice and beautiful collection to shine like a crystal. My favorite among these is the twill Jacket with sequin sleeves.

YES to your solution Erika, love it! That jacket dead centre is absolutely divine!
