It’s that time of the year when it’s hard to overdo the sparkles! During the holidays, sequins and glitter add cheer to the festive season…..so here are some of our favorite ways to wear “sparkle”. And yes, this post is great even for our out-of-town followers!
First off, I am completely over-the-top obsessed with this dress by ADAM. It’s pricey, but oh-so-fabulous. This is the type of dress that you buy once and you pull out once a year for different events no matter what the season. And then, you hand it down to your daughter to wear. I found this dress at Haven, in Franklin. It has left me day-dreaming ever since:
This dress is also available at Net-a-Porter for $1,495, and available, in a size 4 at Haven for $1369. Each sequin is actually sewn across the middle and folded, which allows room for about 3X as many sequins as normal – so this dress is heavy, but falls perfectly when worn. Here is a close up of the sequins:
If you check out the dress on Net-A-Porter it looks pretty short. Well, it is short. But remember that the model there is a size 0 and 6 feet tall and in heels. For everyone else, the dress will not be as short. Haven is located on Main St. in Franklin, TN: www.sanctuaryofstyle.com and the link to Net-A-Porter is here: www.net-a-porter.com.
J Crew is featuring this gorgeous dress, with another price that needs a comma. Now, on Dec. 9th everything at J CREW was 25% off; we’ll see what treat Dec. 10th brings. But if this is dress makes your heart sing, you may be able to snag a deal:

Elizabeth weighs in: At heart, I am a girly-girl and adore glitter and glam. So when I saw this dress in the window of Studio 615 (next to UAL on West End), I thought, “This is to die for, ahhh to be 30 again.” What I love most about Studio 615 is the store is so delightfully affordable. Seriously, you can get great holiday dresses, skirts and tops for about $100. The dress below is under $150. Studio 615 has a great selection of shoes and boots. They are having a rockin’ sale right now on boots.
