Supposed to be TWELVE - Sparkle After the Fact

| Wearing | Dress - Top Shop | Shoes - Steve Madden | Rings - Jewelmint, Silpada and Stella & Dot | Bracelets - Aldo Accessories |

Well, I am embarassed to admit that this was supposed to actually be my Twelfth Day of Sparkle - BUT, things come up, people feel uninspired or just plain lazy.  Maybe it's the weather, maybe it's this time of year, or maybe it's just me, but I haven't felt my usual enthusiasm towards fashion.  Perhaps some of you can relate and need a little refresher like I did.

I have been back at the gym full tilt, dressing as stylish as the weather may permit, and drinking as much water as possible to get a little glow back into my skin.  I absolutely love the snow but I am sick of wearing snow boots, having staticky out of control hair, and hiding all my gorgeous clothes behind scarves and over coats.

This dress is one of my absolute favorites.  It was a real steal from Top Shop and I had the extreme honor of wearing it to a Christmas party with a very handsome date.  It has a very simple draped silhoutte, yet the shimmer and body hugging focal points made me feel like the sexiest woman in the room... with the most body covering dress. I kept the accessories very minimal, rocked my brightest shade of fuschia lipstick and finished it off with a beige 6 inch Mary-Jane pump.  Sometimes, less really is more.

Get glammed up, wear lipstick around the house, curl your hair just because or buy yourself a little something new to regain your confidence... because January can be very drab.
