img_3721It’s that time of the year when special occasions call for dressing up…

and for many of us that quite often means pulling out a favorite basic (usually black) dress or dressy trousers and elevating our look with something shiny and sparkly.  Maybe a glittery sweater, lacey top or satin shirt helps you bring on the sparkle…for me it’s  chance to put on some statement earrings.  This season, Banana Republic has some fantastic accessories and I was able to find these multi coloured beauties at a great price.

But…more often than not, those special one of kind purchases made years ago, are polished and shined and ready to transform a simple, classic style.

So glad I resisted the urge to get rid of these sparklers from the nineties!  Love how they bring a bit of glam to a leather jacket and simple black dress.

And…when I’m unsure and wondering if they’re too much…I slip back into simple and understated.  Simply perfect!
