Must Haves: Sparkly, Glittery, Sequin-y Shoes To Win New Year’s Eve

When it comes to New Year’s Eve, the goal of your outfit should be to make the disco ball jealous. The more sequins, glitter, rhinestones, and sparkle, the better. Don’t stop at a sequined dress — go all out with some truly show-stopping sparkly shoes, too! Here are 10 pairs I’m currently drooling over, most of which are around $50 or less. Oh, and they’re all from Zappos, because their shipping is so scary-fast that you’ll be sure to receive your fancy footwear by NYE (I swear I wasn’t paid to say any of that, I’m just obsessed with Zappos and secretly believe they employ precogs to ship my shoes before I even order them). Anyway, click on the gallery to let the New Year’s Eve sequined shoe parade begin!

Shop The Trend: Hunter Green

There are a lot of different shades of green. I’m not sure who to credit/blame for this. Crayola? Mother Nature?

Not to worry! This darker, moodier jewel tone is gorgeous and deserves a place in your closet. Here are 10 pieces to consider…

Shop The Trend: Bright & Cool Kicks

I’ve never been a total girly-girl. For years, my personal style was pretty tomboyish: baggy pants, plain T-shirts, Doc Martens or Chuck Taylors, you get the picture. Once I moved to New York and started working in an industry that can be very image conscious, I definitely “tried on” a girlier sense of style. It took a while to figure out what I was ultimately comfortable in, but at 34, I can safely say that my sartorial instincts are a mixture of both. For example, if I’m going to wear a plaid flannel shirt, I’d ideally pair it with sky-high heels. So when I noticed a number of street style photos of super chic women pairing feminine cut pants, dresses, blouses and skirts with bright and sporty running sneakers, I was instantly intrigued. Click through my earlier Street Style Spotlight gallery for inspiration, and then check out the 10 cool sneaker options I found here…

Must Haves: 15 Comfy & Cozy Pajama Sets

Yet another sign that I am getting old: I get really, really excited when I have a new set of pajamas. Sure, in summer, I just go to bed in a tank and undies, but during winter? Matching flannel PJs all the way, baby. Maybe I am putting too much emphasis on sleepwear, but putting on a set of matching PJs makes me feel like I’ve really got my shit together. Because, I mean, look at me, I am wearing an outfit to bed. So retire those sweats and ratty Ts and sleep in style in one of these comfy and cozy pajama sets…
