We want to wrap up 2018 with style and by making a statement. On that note, we’re looking at all things sparkly! We love a good sequined skirt. Dresses, shorts, jumpers, you name it! If it’s sparkly, we like it. If sequins aren’t your jam, how about some velvet? Such a great style and perfect for the winter weather! If your plans are more casual, go for a fun backless top for a more understated yet still show stopping look. Cheers to putting a cap on 2018, we can’t wait to see all that 2019 has in store!

  13. Serve the jello or refrigerate until ready to serve.
