Heavy metal – several ways to shine on New Year’s Eve

December 27, 2010 | 11:00 am



Whether you’re at home with a tin of caramel corn watching Snooki and Seacrest count down to 2011 (ahem, now you know my big plans) or attending some amazing party where a hot little dress and high heels are more the dress code, it’s always fun to stick on a sparkly item to ring in the New Year.

For those of you going to the fabulous parties, shimmy into a T-shirt smattered Mini Sequin Purse Silver $39.50 with sequins or wear a sequin cross body bag, but not together of course.

Sporting something shiny, bright and fun on New Year’s Eve makes the holiday that much more festive. Just make sure that your outfit isn’t making more noise than the party horns.

Happy New Year.
