The holidays are a great time to bust out the shiny and shimmery, what with so many Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties a happenin’. I mean, we’re not saying it’s the only time to bust it out; you can sparkle in any season you damn well please. But, it’s especially festive during the festive season, so we’ve made a list (and checked it twice – sorry, had to) of our favourite glittery clothing, accessories and beauty products with which to get festive, whether you’re going to a day function or an all-night rager. Again, we don’t advise wearing everything at once – whoa – just add a pair of sparkly flats here, a sequin miniskirt there and you’ll just be the gosh darn sparkliest sparkler who ever sparkled. I’ve my eye on that Sequin A Line Dress from Joie. Someone buy it for me, please. FYI.
