Winter Sparkles

These tights are seriously too much fun. Too much.

Why they are called the glitter tights and not the Pretty Shiny Sparkly tights, I have not a clue. Maybe we should petition?

It’ll probably have only one signature on it, anyway. Mine.

For some reason, in winter, I think in black and white. I love neutrals and snowy colors (perhaps I want to blend in with my Norwegian homeland’s snowy landscapes?) but I also love the starkness of black. I guess I really couldn’t pick one or the other with this outfit. So it’s neutral, pale, and black…and sparkly. All in one.

Okay, so who of you shop at QVC?

*slowly raises hand*

This tennis bracelet is from their grey diamonique collection. I bought it years ago. And it’s one of the best purchases I’ve ever made, seriously. It’s grey so it doesn’t look so obnoxiously white-white-fake so to me, at least, it looks really realistic! I loves it.


I know I kind of just did a post about my purse, but this just came in the mail from my sponsor Shop Mamie and it’s just killer! So cheap too, but it looks 100x more expensive. Really well made, too! Love the studs.

And thus, a nickname was born.


I took these shots in my office because I wanted you to see what *I* see when I’m wearing them. The camera just didn’t do it enough justice outside. Look at the SPARKLES!!!

I’m in heaven. Heaven.

I definitely gravitate more than the average person toward sparkles year-round, but the holidays…well, they set me loose like a cannon and then I just cannot stop with the sparkles. I drape myself in them. I love them. It’s the simplest way to add a bit of glamour and some spring in your step.

Another good way to add some spring in your step? Listening to Glee. Right now, I’m obsessed with “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” sung by Lea Michele.

    Those are totally adorable I have a pair just like them that I have been breaking out for the holiday season and even earing them in to places like CVS/Target. Too much? I think not! 😉

      Totes agree with ya, Lynzy! Sometimes it's the *perfect* place to wear them to! I think it adds a bit of holiday cheer, don't you?

      They're fabulous and one size fits all if I recall…so since I know we are self-proclaimed Stubby Legs twins, we get more sparkles per square inch. AM I RIGHT?!?!?

    Ooh, Kristina I am in LOVE with this! Those tights are absolutely amazing, I have been wanting either sparkle tights or tights with little crystals sewn into them for ages now, but haven't been able to find any 'in real life' – maybe going to have to order online! These are just gorgeous! Love the pale winter shades! I'm with you, black & white is so perfect for winter! Though this year I'm also head over heels for red! Can't get enough!

      I know, I love all of those DIY crystal tights that have been going around the blogosphere. But I am (1) impatient, and (2) dangerous with needles, so….these do me just fine! And so sparkly, like those last pictures show!

      I'm chanting "do-IT, do-IT, do-IT, do-IT!" in my head. But nobody can hear me. This feels unproductive. Hm.

    Dear jeebus, those tights are beautiful! I love them! And that bag is super cute! Glad to hear that it is of good quality. I must have them both!

    • 12.15.2010 / 6:47 am

      Get em both and treat yourself, Whitney!

    Those tights are awesome, even thought they're so sparkly they don't seem overdone or obnoxious at all. And they look really nice paired with that thick white sweater.I know what you mean about only wearing neutrals in the winter, I guess its the gloomy winter weather that causes it.
