As always, I found the article a bit ridiculous (even before I realized that one of the party apparel suggestions was a sweatshirt with "Party Time" bedazzled across the chest). And I found it a bit sad.
Sad because I have no where to wear a sparkly holiday party dress, and I haven't for 8-14 years*.

the only photographic evidence
Last summer I did manage to buy a fabulous new dress for Vegas, and managed to wear it to three other events, so dressing up is within my grasp. But it very rarely happens, and I do so love to sparkle.
So I've resolved to attend a sparkly dress event, decked out in a sparkly dress, in 2014.
Where do you sparkle?
Where should I go to sparkle?
Who's going to join me?
*My friends in Kansas and I would throw "Sparkles" at which we would wear flashy things and drink sparkling wine, but they were never at the holidays and a new dress, except from a thrift store, would seem out of place. Another Kansas friend threw a very classy holiday open house, to which one could wear a dress, but a lovely silk blouse and black pants was more the norm. Despite (or because) our holiday bonus was a t-shirt, at best, working at Denver Botanic Gardens had the advantages of a dress-up schmoozing event (wear holiday velvet) and a dress up dancing event (known among my friends as the DBG prom).
