RING IN THE BLING!!
de la Renta
Crystals, beads, pearls, sequins, glitter, and all bright and shiny bits embellish so many wonderful fashion pieces at the height of the winter holidays! Sail into the New Year with a razzle-dazzle attitude complete with every imaginable approach for adorning everything from cocktail dresses, gowns, purses, evening bags, suits, shoes, furs and even shawls.
With a liberal dose of sequins, no dress will
Marchesa Sequined Stunner
ever be boring. Consider the black Marchesa cocktail dress or the stunning Mandalay one-shoulder
Tom & Linda Platt
special dinner dress.
Knock them over with a Bordeaux bugle beaded silk chiffon party dress by John de Medeiros or
an elegant cream crystal and pearl 2 piece evening pantsuit suit by Escada.
into a room in a full length beaded gown, and Hollywood has come-a-calling!
Hollywood Crystal Glamour
Or, mix the sparkles up with ruffles, feathers and baby pleats to stun the glittering gala crowd!
And the shoes...OMG, Cinderella herself would be storming our doors! Twinkle across the dance flo
or in Valentino crystalpumps,
or catch the envy of everyone with these brand new Giuseppe Zanotti sandals with bugle beads, crystals and chain link, or Gucci's answer to add everything shiny and see what happens!
Giuseppe Zanotti Bugled Beauties
Sparkling into the New Year is also a welcome break before the dreary days of January! A sweater vest with silver crystals, a simple sequined tank top, a purse with a bit of sparkle can make even a conservative outfit a zesty fashion statement.
Why not put that sparkling brooch on a black suit, the bugle beaded silk fur shawl around a simple sheath dress or even dress up your outerwear look with crystal Bulgari,
Caviar or Versace sunglasses!
Take a lesson from King Louis IV who knew the power of crystals, mirrors and bling!
Ponder his creation of Versailles
Valentino Clutch in Studs and Crystals
and how his vision of all things
shiny and magnificent brought France
from the medieval ages into a more enlightened and cultured era!
Sally musing about handbag resolutions
If you honestly are going
to keep any of your resolutions, you really need to think about curbing that handbag fetish!
Truly, buying purses these days comes down to your current life-style, your interior space needs, and cost-are you looking for an "investment" piece that you will wear
forever, or is it something to take on that trip to Europe just this once?
Is this something you have always wanted, or is it a purchase to salve your conscience for heavens knows what? Is it a great buy or is it just the right style and color to go with your current wardrobe.
Of course, part of the new you for the New Year, also pertains to editing your closet and evaluating your present style to determine if you are actually ever going to wear some of the beautiful handbags that you own. Unless that Louis Vuitton
handbag was Grandma's favorite, your graduation gift from Mom and Dad
or the very first thing you bought with your first bonus, if you don't wear it anymore, let it go. Yep, it's time to switch things up, let unworn or unloved bags go and buy at consignment prices the pieces that you really want.

Wishing you could start the New Year with a new wallet?
Well, have we got a stunning selection for you! First of all, we include money in each wallet! Yes, indeed, because according to the principals of Feng Shui, it is very bad luck to give or get a wallet without money in it---both for the giver and receiver! Who knew? Well, apparently the custom is to include 8 different types of currency to increase the chance of receiving money from many sources from all over the world. At Classic Collections, you most likely will get regular American money, but we want you to know our hearts and minds have adopted this tradition!

Nothing makes a statement more than a woman gliding into a room in a beautiful, elegant gown. That first fetching look of a fair and graceful lady in a heavenly gown - it's just hard to describe. Young or older, thin or blessed with a fuller figure, tall or short, blond or not, every woman is a queen in a gorgeous gown.
