Sparkle and shine

Wearing sparkly things during the holiday season is almost as cliché as that proverbial eggnog cocktail or poinsettia arrangement, but after attending the
Holt Renfrew 2011 Holiday Preview last week, I couldn’t help but gravitate to all the glitter that is on-offer for the festive season. I’m already thinking Kate Spade’s envelope clutch will be the perfect accoutrement for my office holiday party, whereas David Yurman’s star-spangled jewels will definitely be making an appearance when I ring in the New Year. I’ve never been a
nail girl (unlike my online cohort
Jennifer Weatherhead) but I’m tempted to lacquer my nails with Deb Lippmann’s cherry-red polish for the multitude of press cocktail fetes that will be heading my way. I took pictures of these, plus many other beautiful finds, below. (Apologies in advance: All were taken using my Blackberry and I blame the blurriness on the fact I was juggling a mimosa and canape as I tried to snap these. It was a Monday morning, what can I say.)
