Wednesday Perk: Ooooh, Sparkly!

With Christmas just around the cornor, it's time to start figuring out your New Year's Eve plans.  Ok, we'll admit, we've both reached that point in life where NYE consists of dinner with friends and watching the countdown in pjs from the comfort of our couches (if we even make it to countdown, sigh).  However, we still remember our days of excitedly getting dressed up and paying waaaaaaay too much for a ticket for some "fancy" party, and, being the girls we are, we still completely appreciate the sparkles that come out front and center on this one night.  So, for all of you who have plans to get dressed to the nines searching for a glittery look, or for those like us who simply like to admire shiny things, here are some sparkly dresses and accessories to make you a star this New Year's Eve!

We don't know about you, but we would never pay more than $100 for a NYE dress.  Luckily this Zara dress is only $89.  If silver isn't your thing, it also comes in black.  Also, if you are curious how this dress actually looks on check out the review over on Extra Petite, she includes actual pictures of her wearing it.

If you have the legs to wear a mini-dress, then NYE is definitely the night to rock it!  We love how this Arden B. dress balances the short hemline with the longer sleeves, it even has a cute keyhole cutout on the back.  This dress also follows our under $100 rule, coming in at $89 as well.

Not everyone is comfortable trying to pull off a fully sequined dress, so here's a classic pencil skirt alternativeWe love the simplicity and the length, and currently it's on sale for $64.99.

If sequined clothes just aren't your thing, but you still want some sparkle try these lovely gold shoes.  These would be great for a cocktail party, or even to spice up a more casual jeans outfit; so really there is no excuse not to wear them, even for us.

If you really only want just a tiny touch of sparkle, this clutch is perfect.  It's not totally bedazzled like everything else here, plus the coloring means it will go with just about anything you decide to wear.

What are your NYE plans?  Do you just admire glittery outfits like us, or do you actually have plans to don some sequins?
