Sparkles of sequins...Now what?

Happy New Year!  2013 is finally here, and the holiday season is behind us once again.  If you are like me, I am now thinking about what to do with my favorite holiday clothing items.  Unlike some people who can afford to compartmentalize their wardrobes, my holiday clothes have to be all-purpose and serve me before and/or after the holidays.  Like many women, I am a lover of shiny things, sequins included, and although every magazine editor will attempt to assure you that "sequins are for day" many people are not convinced.  Here, I take 3 of my favorite pieces this holiday season, and show you how I plan to wear them well into 2013.  






The best way to make this work for me, was to go as far away from anything that would make this skirt appear dressy.
A basic black sweatshirt, a puffy Black vest, black tights and wedge booties make this outfit appropriate for grocery shopping, errand running, catching a movie, etc.
Black sweatshirt, Walmart; Vest, Lauren Ralph Lauren; Tights, Spanx; Boots, Target; Necklace: ASOS










This blazer can not be relegated to the back of my closet until next year's holiday season.  This outfit is perfect for going out to catch up with my friends,  a day of shopping, or for an impromptu club visit.
Sequin-sleeve jacket: Asos Curve (last year); Nicki Minaj t-shirt: Random; Jeans, thrifted; Booties: Nine West (super old) 









Of course, tuxedo blazers are everywhere this holiday season as they have been for the last few years.  But to challenge myself a bit, I went for this soft, pale pink color (I hate pink!) and I purchased this from Forever 21! (I am really starting to love some of their clothing. Shhh, don't tell anyone).  A hi-low tee shirt, cropped black pants, and men's brogues ground the ceremonial nature of this jacket, and keep this sacharine, sweet shade of pink from overwhelming us in visions of Easter eggs and Easter bunnies.
Tuxedo jacket: Forever 21+; White Tee: H&M; Black Pants: Lane Bryant (super old); Brogues, thrifted.
