After Christmas is always the best time to buy Christmas decorations. We all know it. But it is also that time when I personally, feel like buying them the least. How do you feel when you read the word Christmas right now? Over it? Yeah me too. The deal seeker in me wants to go scour the aisles at Target, Micheal’s and Hobby Lobby for 50% off holiday decor, but most of me is totally OVER Christmas. I’m ready to put it all away and after spending so much on Christmas, I certainly don’t want to spend money on things that will just get packed away until next year.
Clothes can be the same way. Leading up to Christmas and NYE we dream of buying all the shiny things- which happen to all be full price. But because these are specialty items in your wardrobe, you don’t need to buy them at full price. Just like decorations, after the holidays is when sequins and fur and shiny things are a good deal. Those items all go on sale in January.
So what to do? Buy them and save them? No way! We buy them and wear them! Sequins are not only for NYE- you can wear them at other times too. It might be a little much for some people, but I wore this skirt to church last week and it was perfect with a neutral sweater and heels. The sweater tones down the bling and makes for a really fun outfit that is outside my norm. I think peep toe boots would also work great with this skirt and sweaters might be my favorite top to pair it with. You’ll be thrilled to pull out the sequins next holiday season too.
If you held out because you couldn’t justify a sequin skirt or pair of pants at full price during the holidays, or you thought you had nowhere to wear them, now is your chance. I recommends the one I’ve linked above and below, but H&M has tons of sequin items on sale here as well. Happy sequin shopping!
