Well, the holidays may be over, but that doesn’t mean the sparkle this time of the year has to dull. I appreciate each season for what it is, and in January, we’re in the heart of winter. We might as well embrace the days we get to walk around in cozy cable knit sweaters and the nights we get to spend inside by the fire, or if you currently live in New York City like myself, a few candles will have to do. I tend to appreciate the neutral tones this month, like white, ivory, and beige, because I tend to think of January as a winter wonderland month, pending on if we see snow or not of course. Either way, the rush of the holidays are over, and although many retailers start showing resort or spring looks, the truth of the matter is, it is still winter, so let’s embrace it with a little extra sparkle. Here is some sparkle after the holidays around Manhattan to inspire you. Sparkle on, readers *
