Sequins, Sparkles and Creative Decorating

Princess Sparkles and Pigtails love decorating for Christmas.
At Fair Isle's house they had special plastic ornaments to decorate the tree.  
Let's just say they were very creative with where they put their ornaments.

SHEARLING JACKET - Buffalo
OLIVE SEQUIN MATERNITY TOP - Motherhood Maternity (hand-me-down)
MATERNITY JEANS - Paige Premium Denim (thrifted)
PIRATE HANDBAG - Siren (c/o Cat Hag giveaway)
BRONZE LOAFER WEDGES - Steve Madden (thrifted)
SEQUIN BERET - D&Y

The Siren bag I won from the Cat Hag giveaway
Since "Everybody, Everywear" was doing Sequins and Sparkles I decided to stick with accessories.  It gave me a chance to wear this fabulous hat I picked up last year at a Shecky's Girls' Night Out event, as well as display my edgy new Siren bowling bag I won from the Cat Hag.  I'm wearing a shearling jacket I bought last time it was trendy.  I LOVE when I keep something and it comes back in style!!!

Ornaments on my mom's artwork and a pirate ship...

Yes that's a softball and yes that's an ornament hanging from the top.

Princess Sparkles' "groom" wears a basket for a hat

His friend gets a sparkley headband and carebear sticker.

Sequins and sparkles are perfect for the holidays.  I love them as day wear, but they're also great to dress up a party dress!  Basically they're ornaments for an outfit!

Ho, ho, ho. I love the shiny blue pirate bag! It will look great with your new over-the-knee boots.
Your girls have opened my mind to
think outside the box regarding decorations.
