Sparkle For The Holidays, And Beyond
Sometimes it’s the little things…like how a pair of sparkly earrings lights up the face, and adds a festive touch to any outfit. And if you’re bundled up against the winter chill, they may be your most visible jewelry.

When it comes to sparkly earrings, don’t be afraid to go a bit Over The Top. Especially if the rest of your outfit is more simple or refined, “a little bad taste is like a nice splash of paprika,” to quote Diana Vreeland.
