holiday trend alert: sequins

 

This holiday season is all about glitz and glam, and sequins are back — in a big way.  We’re not talking ‘80’s- style prom dress sequins, but a subtle and elegant dash of glitter that gives just the right amount of edge to any outfit. In fact, adding some sparkle to your look is not only one of 2011′s hottest trends — it’s also one of the easiest.  If you don’t already have your go -to sequin accessory, you need to get one before the holiday party circuit starts. Here, we’ve rounded up some of the glittery, most versatile pieces on the market. Get your shine on!

Clockwise from the top left: beret, $25 at Topshop; grey skinny scarf, $19 at myscarfshop.com, blazer, $158 at Victoria’s Secret, Kate Spade New York  Agatha bag, $295 at Neiman Marcus; three tiered sequin mini skirt, $79 at Express; Stripes glitter pump, $49 at Urban Outfitters.

Daytime Dare— Feelin’ a Little Lacy

When most people hear the word lace, images of cheesy va-va-voom lingerie ala Fredericks of Hollywood or Great-granny’s turn of the century wedding gown come to mind. Well, tartelettes, Mimi is here to show you that the days of bad lace are over! For the past two or three years, the print has been making a quiet comeback, but for Fall 2009 its back in black, baby. And ready to play both nigh and day!Yep, you heard me- during the a.m. too!

I have compiled a collection of luscious lacy looks that’ll have you moving from coffee at your desk to cocktails at the bar like a seasoned stylista. So “lace” yourself for some majorly ToDieFor pieces!

Free People’s Ruffle Fingerless Gloves are a funky modern take on Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” look.

I love these Pink Studio Katana flats for a more low-key lace look. And the navy hue provides unexpected chic.

For the Blair Waldorf in all of us, this Skinny Lace headband is simply adorable.

Anthropologie’s Skirted Lace-Print Cardigan is a versatile piece that would be just as stylish with tweed trousers on Mon as it would be with Converse on Sat.

Price ain’t nothin’ but a number when it comes to this showstopping &uber-expensive M Missoni dress. Lace has never looked more HighEnd*shopbop.com*

Ok, tartelettes, this is a Daytime Dare, not Scare so get ready to “lace” on some serious chic. And for those true daredevils of style, head on over H.E.R.E. to see how to really up the ante with lace’s naughtiest companion- leather!

Until next time, chicsters!

Last Night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

At 10pm (East Coast time that is) last night, I along with millions of others ogled over the svelte figures cascading the catwalk of the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on CBS. So after an hour of amazement, the next best thing was my sudden burst of motivation to exercise. The cold weather makes me lazy and I’ll admit it I’ve been sans gym for quite a bit, but I guess all I needed were those lingerie donning beauties to push me out of my slump. So starting today I’m getting back in the swing of healthy eating and shaping up. To give me that extra push, Levi is coming into the office today for a session. I’ll never be an Adriana or Heidi but after working up a good sweat I do feel great!
