For the play-center party, I finally got to wear my sequin H&M sweater that I bought back in May. The sweater is beige with silver sequins...it is definitely more gaudy than my Express sequin top - while I was wearing it, someone came to ask where I bought it from as she wanted one to wear to a Lady Gaga concert! It may be too sparkly for day wear - but I can't help it - once the holiday season starts, I have to break out the sequins!! I plan on wearing this sweater on New Years Eve as well.

I also went to Garage during the weekend, to exchange the "London Blue" skinnies I bought during their sale. I think the colored denim trend will still be going strong in 2013, and I wanted something I could wear both in the cooler and warmer seasons. So I set aside my inhibitions and went for the boldest of colors - red! I was definitely influenced by this pic of Lauren Conrad:
Although the color is VERY bright and will take getting used to - it coordinates well with my existing wardrobe (unlike the London Blue denim). I plan on wearing them with camel or cream tops and cognac or metallic shoes. Here's a quick dressing room shot...I also purchased the navy polka dot sweater from the first pic.
Lastly - my bubble necklace collection has now gone up to 5 - think I should stop now? I found this adorable mini-bubble necklace by JoeFresh while doing groceries - it was in the clearance section and cost only $7! The beads are smaller than the regular necklaces (you can see the size difference against my red H&M bubble necklace). By the way - the original J.Crew necklace is now on sale for $75 here, while Arden B has a blue-green one for $34 (plus 20% off) here.
Hope you had a great weekend! What will you be wearing to Holiday Parties?
