OOH, SHINY: Sure, sequins are all the rage right now, but how often can you really get away with wearing them? That's where holiday parties come in -- you're totally supposed to look all sparkly. Black and gold boleros ($152) from Love Shop turn any outfit into a major win, and Alexandria's Periwinkle has great suggestions to dress 'em up or down:
Pair the bolero with some jeans, a tank top, and a bib necklace for a fun and festive daytime look; step it up for an evening affir by pairing the bolero with a cocktail dress and a statement necklace; or go for a rocker chic look by pairing the vest with a leather jacket, black straight leg pants, a tee, and a statement necklace.
By the way... drop into Periwinkle's holiday party this Tuesday (10 a.m.-8 p.m.) to score 50 percent off everything in the store. So that $152 will turn into a measly $76 -- and hey, it's the holidays! You deserve a present, right? GET IT: 1557 Potomac Greens Drive, Alexandria (703-519-5242).
