Sequin Savvy

By  December 09, 2008
During the holiday season some women like to bake warm goodies, others like to throw a good wintry bash. For the fashionably savvy? Well, we enjoy the art of dressing festive and showing off our fabulosity. This season, sequins are popping up everywhere from pretty pumps to punk rock headbands. Use the glitzy beads as a subtle accent piece or for an allover look that will rival your neighbor’s reindeer display.
