Getting in the Swing with Holiday Bling

By Linsibrownson @CleverSpark

The holidays are in full-swing which means several things: gift-giving, harried shopping and holiday parties. I’m not even going to address the abomination which is “ugly Christmas sweater parties,” but I do want to talk about holiday jewelry.

We may be tempted to dig up something festive to wear that ugly swea … er, fabulous holiday outfit. But, whatever you do, DO NOT give into the temptation to wear holiday bell-earrings or a Santa brooch.

Just don’t do it. Instead, go for something festive and classy. The perfect choice: vintage costume jewelry. To find pieces you’ll love, visit a flea market or thrift store, or even see if an older relative in your family might have some pieces to pass down (hello heirlooms!).

Pieces like these below will keep you looking fashionably festive and off Santa’s naughty (bad fashion) list!
