all that glitters

Fellow magpies will appreciate the new winter trends this year -- everything sparkles and shimmers! I'm so drawn to anything with glitter and sequins. They seem to make a comeback every year as they're the perfect attribute for the holidays.

Sequins, glitter, and shimmer look amazing during the day as well as night. Pairing them with a "masculine" item (as Blake Lively and Jenna Lyons did below) gives them a unique twist.

  1. I am absolutely obsessed with blake lively- and I love her 80's inspired sequin skirt! Paired with a simple button down, this look gives an instant chic feel to a normally bland outfit. Love it!
