'Tis the season to sparkle, sparkle, sparkle!

Now that we are kicking off the month of December, you can plan on seeing lots of red, green and shimmer galore. With holiday parties in full swing, this week's outfit would be all about turning out our best celebratory glam; by starting off with a dress that will shine from across any room. Saloni's 'Therese' midi dress is crafted with bronze sequins and a rounded off-the-shoulder neckline, which is both flattering and ultra glamorous. Bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase 'twinkle toes,' these gold-tone metallic leather 'Harmony Star' sandals from Giuseppe Zanotti Design are true footwear show stoppers.They feature a strappy design with an open toe, high stiletto heel, a rear zip fastening, and studded star applique details.We kept the shine going strong while accessorizing with the addition of Aurelie Bidermann's 18kt Gold plated brass serpent earrings and the Jean Confetti Striped Box Cutch by Edie Parker. Lastly, we injected a little gold magic into our makeup, using Clarin's new holiday mascara. This limited edition Top Coat Mascara delivers a hint of golden shimmer to lashes for an illuminated finish. The best thing about a look like this is that not only is it great for a Christmas event, it could easily be reused for a New Year's bash by simply mixing up your accessories, hair and makeup. If you're wanting to make a lasting impression, then there is no doubt that you will be the 'Shining Star' at any soiree you show up to.
