We all know someone who turns it up, no matter the occasion, whether it’s best-dressed at Halloween, or the most bejewelled disco ball at holiday parties who’s walking in the room to make the whole place shimmer. Quiet luxury be damned, this is a stylish stunner, the belle of the ball with, thankfully, zero mean girl energy too — I mean, that’s why you’re willing to splurge on a nice gift right? That said, there’s no shame in aspiring to be that girl too, and this one’s for her and all the girl’s girls in Barbie Land, because female friendships are some of the most fulfilling and heartwarming ones around. Go ahead, pamper her already.
