Sparkle Baby!

"Sparkle baby" - a direct quote from the episode of Toddlers and Tiaras I am currently watching and how I felt during last night's festivities.

After a night of tequila and champagne drinking, I am fully taking advantage of my day off and watching trashy tv with some past episodes of Revenge sprinkled in here and there. It is pretty fabulous and I am loving every minute of it. The perfect way to start off the year! :)

Last night was pretty low key which was just perfect for us. Because we were going to a local bar, I didn't feel the need to get all dolled up as I used to get during NYE during those years living in Vegas. However, if there is ever a night to go all out with shiny sparkles, it's New Years Eve. So I took full advantage...

On a whim over the summer, I ordered a little girl's sequin mini skirt (I love shopping in the kids department) from J Crew and have been trying to find the right occasion to wear it. Since it is crazy cold here in San Diego right now, I layered it over my new favorite faux (vegan) leather leggings and went for all black with pops of gold. Maybe not my favorite New Years outfit ever, but it did the job!


Sweater & Little Girls Sequin Skirt (old but this one is really cute) -  J Crew // Faux Leather Leggings
Crystal Bangle & Steve Madden Pumps - Nordstrom // Spike Bracelet - H&M but this one is basically the same // 
Soho Wrist Wallet - Gucci //Monogram necklace - Etsy (awesome price & fast shipping!)

Of course after a few drinks, I thought wearing a green Happy New Year glitter tiara would be the perfect accessory to this outfit. Call me crazy, but it was probably the tequila that made this decision! Oh well...

Happy first day of 2013 everyone!
