Who doesn’t love a good dose of sparkle?…

top | Gap {love this and this}
skirt | Giambattista Valli (NM Last Call)
necklace | F21 {like this}
necklace worn as bracelet | thrifted {similar}
opal ring | late aunt {similar}
clutch | late aunt {similar and sequiny}
tights | UNIQLO {similar}
booties | Bottega Veneta (NM Last Call)

This would have been my outfit for NYE if we actually left the house.  I guess some things never change!  We celebrated a night IN with dinner and a movie instead.  But luckily for me, Kristina of Pretty Shiny Sparkly sent out another Bloggers Do It Better mission: SEQUINS!  So I got to put on some shine and sparkle for this blog post!  Thanks to my cousin I* for giving me this top years ago!  Even though I’ve pleaded the fifth about not being able to wear sequins, I seem to be embracing the sequin/shiny thing pretty well now {see here and here}!
