Sparkle from the Inside Out: Ringing in the New Year

New Years. Always a big holiday for fashion. Do you have your outfit picked out? Whether you are in Times Square, at a fabulous cocktail party or snuggled up with your loved one . . . it is absolutely necessary to wear something that sparkles :). Think sequins. Lots of sequins. Gold, Silver, Tangerine, Chartreuse, whatever you like. It's the one time of year when we can dress totally outrageous and no one cares! Except Vegas. There anything goes, all year round. I have been waiting too long for this trend to take off . . . and guess where I will be spending my New Years? No, not in Times Square. San Francisco with my girls? Guess again. Salem Hospital is where I will be ringing in the New Year. Hey, someone's got to take care of the patients :). Maybe I can bedazzle my scrubs? Although, I don't think that would be "dress code appropriate". So, my challenge to you is, and PLEASE take it, because I so wish I could partake, I'm even
giving you all access to the dress I was going to wear (see below)
Get Decked. and Rock it. 

Here are some dazzling pieces that are totally New Years appropriate:

First Pearl of Wisdom

Over the past several months, I've had the urge to create a blog about fashion, home decor and everything that is lovely. You see, I became obsessed with Pinterest (if you don't know what that is, Google it immediately, or better yet just click here). Here are some things I've been pinning:

This is my "i.heA.rt.fA.shion" board as I've been pinning from blogs, websites and other Pinteresters' Boards. Did I just make up a word? I think I did. Dibs! Tell all your friends, I really want it to be in Urban Dictionary by 4pm tomorrow.

As I continue to be inspired by fashion, my goal is to hopefully inspire you in the same way. I believe that fashion is a glimmer into one's soul and gives us the confidence to take each day in stride. Keep checking back for the latest treasures I share with you :)

A special thank you to Megan Ward owner of Red Pearl Designs for the logo and blog design! Check out her work, she's fabulous!
