Confession: We have something of a magpie complex here at R29. If it sparkles, shines, or glimmers in the light, we'll most likely love it, want it, and have to have it. And there's no time quite like NYE to max out on our twinkly tendencies. So, it goes without saying that we've been smitten with this sequin maxi-skirt after spying the DIY on A Pair & A Spare — the shape is modern and sleek; the muted sequins are classy, not trashy; and the whole project can be done in a day (or a weekend, if, like a true magpie, you get distracted easily).
Get the full how-to here, and then pat yourself on the back for not only choosing your NYE outfit early, but whipping it up yourself. How many gals at your Monday night soirée will be able to say that?
