A Holiday Outfit With Sparkle

DSC_0080Have you ever heard the saying, “A day late and a dollar short”? I think whoever coined that saying, must have known me. This outfit was my Christmas Eve outfit, and I meant to have it on the blog then, but I didn’t take the computer that had the pictures loaded on it to my mom and dad’s. Therefore, you get to see them now.  Tada!  DSC_0079This black sparkly top is perfect for any holiday occasion. Can’t you see it looking great for New Year’s Eve? I was shocked when I found this top at Rue 21. I NEVER find anything at Rue 21, but I found this top and the Winesday sweater I wore the other day. Here is the link, but online they only had the pus size. DSC_0069And what holiday outfit would be complete without a Frosty The Snowman Hat? This is the cutest hat ever! I bought it at least 5 years ago from a company called RAZ Imports. They have the most amazing decorating type items, but their Christmas items are unreal. If you look in nice stores, you will see their tag on items. DSC_0073My daughter wanted to pick out my outfit, so I hesitantly agreed. You would have to know my daughter to understand my reluctance. But, I must say she did great. I tried to talk her out of the plaid leggings, because I had worn them recently, but she was stubborn.DSC_0067She also picked out all my vintage accessories. The necklace, bracelet, and cherry drop earrings are all bakelite. Honestly, I would not have picked out the yellow necklace, but it really popped on the black. DSC_0066I may have to see if I can talk her into sticking around a little longer to help me with my outfits. She has a fresh (aka young) perspective.

  1. Thanks for the tip on RAZ imports. Will check them out!

  2. Your stylist did a very good job! The sparkly top is perfect because it’s not form-fitting.

  3. Very cute! That’s a nice top. Doubt I could get away w/the leggings, if I had the nerve. But, I must say, not bad!????

  4. What a fun outfit. Love the sparkly top and that is a looser top and not skin-tight. So many sparkly tops fit like a second skin. As usual you hit it out of the park.

  5. Loving that sparkly black top! It’s still Christmas to me, not ready for it to be over. 🙂

  6. Really cute outfit and the accessories are perfect!!

  7. The outfit is cute! Great for NYE. ???? I have to confess, every time I see those leggings, I have the strange urge to go wrap something. ????
