Eleven Pieces That Will Add Sparkle to Your Closet

I am going to get straight to the point of this post - I am someone who does not like to hold off until Christmas and New Year's Eve to wear my fun, sparkly clothes. Actually let me dig deeper; I don't let holidays dictate what I wear and when I can wear it. Never. Ever.  

We are currently in the season of everything bright, sequin, metallic and gold, and I love it so much! It is my favorite time of the year. But I also find it equally fun and inspiring to incorporate any sort of sparkle into my looks at any given time. And with winter slowly creeping in, the wardrobe rotation can turn monotonous pretty fast. 

The pieces selected below know how to make a statement very well, all on their own.  You could dress them up or dress them down; and because these items have a particular timeless appeal, you most likely won't be bored with any one of them. 

Cheers to great style all year long!

PVD Lady Project Holiday Gift Guide Photoshoot ~ BEHIND THE SCENES

Last month I had the special opportunity to co-plan and style the photo shoot for the awesome PVD Lady Project, and work alongside with photographer and friend, Brittanny Taylor.  Working on projects like this one is great as I get to meet inspiring, driven ladies, and get to collaborate with local retail stores, that are just fantastic to work with and so generous of their time and resources. 

Celebrate! was the theme of the shoot - so there were sequins and bling-bling galore! Gold, silver, red, cobalt blue, green, and black were dominating colors as they should be! They have that royal-factor and are a wardrobe must-have during the holiday party season.

Our retail partners: The Vault Collective, The Arcade Mall's Goddess Closet and Flaunt Boutique, J. Marcel, and Zuzu's Petals.

When I sign up on a project, I also sign up to be the coat holder/shoe keeper/purse handler/and everything else that involves guarding and protecting the precious borrowed garments. I'm 100% invested!
