Friday's Fancies: Sparkle & Shine!

Happy Friday! Gotta love lunch break blogging! :)

I am very excited for the weekend. Tonight is my office holiday party and tomorrow is my party! Andrew and I are hosting my FIFTH (count 'em, 1-2-3-4-5) Ugly Christmas Sweater Party tomorrow! Of course I'm sad my DC friends won't be here, but I am definitely pumped to bring the party to the Midwest.

Today on {av}'s Friday's Fancies we honor the sparkle and shine of the season. If you view any of my boards on Pinterest you will notice that I certainly have an affinity for glitter and sequins. Here's my little sparkly creation for the week:

And since I have a holiday party to attend this evening, I'm sporting a little sparkle myself! First, check out my nails! Remember this post where I wasn't sure what to do? Well, thanks to Pinterest and Essie, I made this fun creation. What do you think?

Second, here's my OOTD. I'm wearing a blazer from Target, my new sequin tank from Express that I got for 50% off (thank you, Cyber Monday!), jeans from the Gap, new red lipstick from Benefit Cosmetics (more on this trip soon!!!!), ring from M2, earrings and bangles from Francesca's, and necklace from Nordstrom Rack. You can't see my shoes but I am wearing patent leather camel round-toe pumps with the get-up!
