Collaboration with Chairish: Sparkle & Shine

*this post is in collaboration with I am not being paid for this blog post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I was asked by the wonderful people over at to come up with a styleboard featuring their curated, vintage items. Chairish just recently added vintage accessories and jewelry to their site where they already offer an awesome selection of vintage furniture and décor.
The look I came up with will feature a New Year Party theme that is meant to make a statement with a touch of "sparkle & shine."

Collab w/ Chairish: Sparkle & Shine

The base of this look will feature all black. You can never go wrong with a little black dress and a simple and classic pair of black suede pumps. Not only is this black mini dress  flattering, but the sweetheart neckline will show off any necklaces or jewelry, especially if you have shorter hair or sport an up-do.  To complete the outfit, a nice and simple black clutch like this L.K. Bennett Suede Clutch would match well with the entire outfit and complete the look.

For the added Sparkle & Shine, I choose different pieces from Chairish that would stand out with the dress yet compliment the look at the same time. The pieces are both unique and a bit bold, but different ones will work for different tastes and styles.

The first picks I have are these snake/serpent inspired wrap necklaces. Not only are they a great statement piece, but they're also conversation starters. I am obsessed with all things that have to do with snakes so I naturally gravitated towards these pieces. The best part about these is that though they are such stand out pieces, they are not over-the-top. They are definitely bolder pieces, but due to the pieces being predominantly black, it draws away the costume factor.
The first one is this Mesh Snake Necklace which can also double up as a belt. The other is a Large Rhinestone Serpent Necklace if you wanted a piece with even more sparkle.

The next piece that caught my eye was a 1960s Henry a la Pensee Bracelet & Earring Set that showcases a beautiful black & gold feather bangle with matching French clip styled earrings. One of my favorite color combinations is black and gold and I find it perfect for the holidays. Both the bangle and earrings have gold trimming with shiny jewels in the middle so as the light hits them, you will definitely shine. It is a bit more subtle than the snake necklaces but it still will definitely stand out. I would pair these jewelry pieces and the black attire with a nice red lip. Adding a pop of red to the look makes the colorway complete!
The last pieces I have for some Sparkle & Shine at your upcoming parties are some beautiful, dangling earrings. Whether you want something more classic or something with a pop of color, I have two great choices to share. First up are these Kenneth Lane Rhinestone Pearl Chandelier Earrings. The pearl drop and rhinestone accents are a perfect touch for a glamorous, yet classic look with definite sparkle and shine. To really show them off, all you need is a nice up-do and everything else can be kept as a minimal. Again, I would pair this with a nice red lip or something even deeper.
The second choice I have is for those who want a bit of color added to their outfit. These 1960s Schreiner New York Rhinestone Drop Earrings in a gorgeous emerald green color are the perfect touch. This shade of green is so rich and vibrant, yet not too bright which will make a perfect contrast against your black dress and pumps and keeps things a little fresher.
I hope I have given some of you some inspiration for any holiday parties (or any parties in general) if you wanted to add a bit of sparkle and shine to a somewhat simple all black outfit. Have fun with your accessories and don't be too afraid to try new styles. It's okay to mix and match pieces as long as they don't clash too much with everything else going on. The simpler the dress, the even bolder you can go with the jewelry.

Readers, what is your ideal Party look? Do you like to add some sparkle or keep it simpler?
