I really like sparkly red toes for Christmas. I do not paint the nails on my hands, but if I did, I would do some sort of cool nude color, like Jen Aniston always wears. But, if you have good nails, definitely do THIS.
I also like to bring out my "Holiday wear" and wear my hair in different ways. Here are some ideas I found on Pinterest. Lately, I have been thinking about wearing my sparkly gear in the daytime. There goes that Freak Flag again, inching itself up to half mast.
|This is probably my favorite.|
|Really cool. My friend, Megan, sleeps in hers and wears it the next day. LOVE IT.|
|Anthropologie has similar head bands to this.|
I know we have had extraordinarily good weather lately (in November), but I really like the fact that it has gotten cold. I like getting out all of my gloves and hats and putting together new outfits.
|The ones I have are red and orange. I would take a pic but the kids are wearing them today. They also have one big hole for the four fingers so they would be easier to knit. I am sure I will research it and never do it.|
I am really into leg warmers, too - over boots, that is, not with a sweatshirt with the neck cut out and Capezios. I don't mind reliving a trend, as long as it is done in a new way. That is my rule.
|The thinner ones are the best, I think.|
Anyway, I decided that due to some stress that I have had lately, I am going to make the effort to dress better during the week, to try and lift my spirits a little. I am going to paint my toenails Hooker Sparkly Red, an OPI color I have been lobbying for, and I am going to research patterns for hats, scarves and gloves on the internet that I will never finish - but I will start, of course.
Here are some cool sparkly items I found, I own a variation of the black one and am wearing in the pic above. I got it last year from J.Crew on sale, and I really like the boat neck feature. I think it would look cute with arm warmers because the sleeves are three-quarter length. Maybe you will see me pumping gas in this get up some time. I tend to be like that GD elf that I am sure will consume an entire Christmas post, if not several. I turn up in unexpected places, in weird outfits, while I "spread mischief and holiday cheer."
|This is just amazing. Would be so cool with leggings and cool black boots.|
|I love this under a black blazer and jeans or with black Tuxedo pants and heels.|
|This is similar to the one I own. Beware. It is uncomfortable under a blazer. I think it would be really cool with a bright scarf.|
