How to add sparkle to everyday outfits

jcrew lookbook via ladies home journal

 During the holidays, outfits are all about sparkle. We can bring a bit of that festive shine into our everyday looks. If you think that it's impossible to wear shimmering garments during the day have a look at the outfits below and get inspired. A good rule is to wear only one embellished garment or accessory at a time to avoid being too flashy during day hours.  A statement necklace worn over a fluffy jumper or an embellished blouse worn under a jacket can be both suitable for work. A sparkly sweatshirt is cool and comfy while a metallic coat enlightens any winter outfit. Dare to wear a sequin bag and you won't go unnoticed.

When the festive feelings overcome you it's easy to get carried away. After making several gift packages I couldn't stop myself from putting gift bows everywhere! If there's a pretty ornament around I know is going to end on a pair of shoes. Shine at the party with a pair of unusual shoes!
A loud message for your friends: gift me shoes, please!

I hope all of you is enjoying the Holiday break!

The most unconventional Christmas trees ever seen

Classic or unconventional? It's a big dilemma when we talk about Christmas decorations. For me it's hard to say no to the green tree covered with gold and red ornaments, it just feels like home, but of course there are no strict rules. You'll see below how some creative people tried to innovate the tradition. They kept the shape of the classical Christmas tree as inspiration and made their own version with unconventional materials. The results are fun to watch. My favorite one is the tree made with broccoli and tomatoes, it would be a fantastic centerpiece for the Christmas lunch with relatives.
