It’s that time of year again. Holiday season. When women around the globe throw practical style to the wind and buy the most ridiculous short, tight, sequinned thing we can find. In the emotional rush that comes along with finding that short, tight, glittery thing (“OMG! It SPARKLES!!”), we overlook the fact that we will only be able to wear it one night of the year, with zero possibility of reuse.

With a closet full of overwhelmingly sparkly, overwhelmingly cheesy sequin bodycon dresses accumulated over a decade of New Year’s Eves (because you can’t wear the same one twice!), I have finally decided to put on my big girl pants – or skirt, or dress – and invest in some holiday wear with more subtle sparkle. Maybe something knee-length. Maybe something work party appropriate. Maybe even something I will wear again.

What’s your go-to holiday style?

Yes, it’s been a long time.  I want to thank every one of you who has stuck with me during my creative drought, and I want all of you to know that I’ll be back blogging regularly now.  -Not quite as often as before I started school, but I will try to post at least once a week.  My new camera should be arriving in the next few days, and I can’t wait to document a few of the new purchases I’ve made since August.  But until then, some (mostly affordable) inspiration for a bolder and brighter winter/spring transition!

Thoughts?
