I love all the holiday glamour pieces in JustFab’s Holiday Glitz collection and would hate for my new shiny wardrobe to expire once the holidays are over. Thankfully, I’ve figured out the best way to use my holiday glitz on the regular during and after holiday season. Who said we can’t add a little umph to our day-to-day? After all, it’s never the wrong time for a little glitz.
