It's the day before Christmas Eve, which means today's post is also the last installment of my Luxe Or Less Gift Guide! I hope you've enjoyed perusing my gift picks as much as I enjoyed choosing them.
Item: Sequined goodies
Good for: Party girls and fashionable folks
Why sequins: Like the clutches, sequined clothes and accessories would be excellent for social butterflies and will get plenty of wear at New Year's Eve parties and well into 2010. Avid trend watchers would also appreciate a sparkly addition to their wardrobe, whether it's a little something to dress up a daytime look or a showstopping frock for the evening.
Go luxe: This Hervé Léger sequined bandage dress ($1,250) is admittedly not for everybody. But if your gift recipient has the figure to pull off a tight body-con silhouette, crisscross sequin detailing, and winter white, this dress will look absolutely stunning--and leave more than a few admirers picking up their jaws off the ground as she saunters past them.
Spend less: Add some sparkle to casual everyday ensembles with these gray jersey sequined fingerless gloves ($4.80) from Forever 21. Can you imagine how cute they'd be with a boyfriend blazer, skinny jeans, and tall leather riding boots? Pick up a pair as a stocking stuffer for your girlfriend and maybe a pair for yourself while you're at it!
