A Little SparkleTuesday, December 04, 2012
I've been making my Christmas list (STAY TUNED!) and there's a common thread: almost everything that catches my eye these days has a little sparkle. And I would not generally consider myself an overly "sparkly" person.
Case in point:
This nail polish.
I recently bought this skirt on a ridiculous whim. ($29 is quite the splurge for the Queen of Cheap, especially when it comes to something as impractical as a sequined black miniskirt, which I need like a hole in the head.)
I can't explain what's triggering this sudden urge for all things sparkly and girly. An overabundance of holiday spirit, an attempt to go all-out glitzy after a year of leggings and t-shirts, a desperate and sad attempt to hold onto my childhood or to inject a little glamour into my life...I just don't know.
Even glittery reindeer ornaments are starting to look appealing. GLITTER REINDEER!
I'm going to try to rein it in before I make any big mistakes.
In the meantime, I'll be painting my nails gold and wearing my sequins to our company Christmas party. It just so happens to be an Ugly Christmas Sweater party.
