Chanel Sparkle

Adding sparkle to this holiday season in accessories by Chanel. Turtleneck and combined lace & tweed skirt by Zara.    Chanel accessories are glitter boots, minaudiere, fingerless gloves and crystal brooch.  I find subtle tweeds and solid color the best to wear with glittery boots to keep the style classy.
