Holiday inspiration: sparkle + sequins

What goes better with disco balls than sequins? I've been very much excited that glitter, sequins and all things sparkly are back in vogue, I'm like a magpie with it comes to shiny objects. I've definitely taken it upon myself to promote this trend whole-heartedly with some new sequined additions to my wardrobe and of course, the new addition of my disco ball. I was thrilled to see that the holiday edition of Martha Stewart picked up on this trend in the pitch-perfect way that only Martha can - here disco looks classy, glamorous - nothing tacky or bawdy in sight, just pure fun and celebration.






The very lust worthy gold cutlery is the Midas collection from The Conran Shop.
