Menswear inspired watches are still VERY popular, and these classic yet modern pieces are great staples for your jewelry box! Doesn’t everyone want a piece that will make you feel instantly more sophisticated when you put it on?

This Timex for J. Crew Watch is amazing, but it will set you back $195.00

This way-less-expensive alternative from Target is also a Timex, but only $29.00. Think of all the shoes/handbags/lingerie/chocolate you could buy with all the money you save! 🙂

Express always has a fun variety of dresses! I happened to pick up both of these sparkly dresses on black friday when they were about half off!! Black and gold are definitely in right now! And I love the subtle blue sequins coming through the black mesh on the second one! They are so much fun!

And last, but not least Polyvore always keeps you up to date on the new fashion trends! I just got an email this morning about holiday dresses! How appropriate! Be sure to CLICK HERE and view some of the selections they put together! There are even more sparkly dresses to choose from!

Although all this holiday sparkle is appealing, don’t forget the #1 rule of Sequin Fashion- Don’t Overdo It! All that means is that it is a general no-no to pair one of these fabulous dresses with some similarly sequined shoes or accessories.

Try complementing your dress with some nude pumps similar to these: 

Nude Wide Strap Heels

And I’ve been oohing and aahing over these beauties from Victoria’s Secret ever since I saw them on Pinterest! The nude and black strappy pump is perfect! Or I even like the pop of color with the turquoise, whichever one you choose you can’t go wrong with one of these!

I will be the first to admit I probably went years without painting my nails. It wasn’t until this past year that I fell in love with getting a regular manicure/pedicure. There is just something about having freshly painted nails that makes you feel beautiful and put together! I do; however, have a love/hate relationship with the fact that the color only lasts about a week, but at the same time I love being able to change up my everyday look with something so simple as a different nail color! 
 Essie has a lovely winter collection of colors, my personal fave being the “bobbing for baubles”.  Dark blue nails have been a big trend for the fall, and I just so happened to have the perfect blue sparkle dress to match! But really, you can’t go wrong with any of these colors! I love them all!

We also found some great inspiration for glam looks from other beauty blogs, all of which would compliment your holiday party or special Christmas date-look.
The No Polish Nail Polish:
This is a great option if you don’t have time to go in for a manicure and feel like experimenting a bit! You can either go with the Sally Hansen Salon Effects and one of my favorite beauty bloggers, Kandee Johnson has a great tutorial for how to apply these, or if you can’t find a pattern you like there, you might try the Sephora by OPI Chic Prints!
The Hombre Nail polish:
That’s right, the crazy gradient hair trend has made its way onto your nails in an hombre nail! Wish just a few simple steps you can have your very own Hombre nails! Plus, there are a few more fun nail art designs HERE!

Modern Dandelion Nail Art:
If the crazy prints, or hombre nails are a little too “out there” for you, but you want to add a little zing to your ordinary single color nails- add a little art yourself! This dandelion art looks so fun! Reminds me of Fireworks- might be perfect for New Year’s Eve!
And last but not least, you can’t go wrong with GLITTER nails this year!!
I’m loving these fun bright colors from the OPI Muppets collection for the Holidays!!
Hope this post helped inspire you to spend a little time on yourself this weekend! You deserve it!
XOXO, Casey
