Today’s Outfit: Post-Holiday Sparkle

3 Jan

Just because the holidays have passed doesn’t mean the sparkle needs to fade.  On the contrary.  Now’s the time to wear your finest shimmery-metallic-sequined-blingy type stuff  and glimmer through the bitter winter months.

The dress is a simple dolman sleeved, shift style.  It’s a throw on, really.  Sleeves hit just above my wrists, in a mini length (but not too mini) so it works great with super high-heels or knee-high boots. The simple gray knit comes to life with golden thread – my winter shimmer – woven throughout.  And, since I can get bored in most monochrome situations, I added in a slouched belt to break it up a bit.



Today’s Outfit: I’m Golden

17 Oct

The top is loose and a bit slouchy in a lustrous, metallic bronze. The hem scoops down in the front and back with dolman sleeves (my favorite style); loose and airy but fitted around my wrists.  And I kept the rest, sleek, clean black.

Fashion Trends: Metallic & Sequins

22 Nov

I love sparkle, shimmer, and glitter. Here are six metallic and sequin pieces that will catch the light and turn heads, make a statement, and bring spirit to your day (or night).  Even better, you don’t have to wait until evening to wear them. With the exception of a true cocktail/evening dress, metallic and sequin clothes are absolutely do-able during the day. Just combine them with more subtle choices like dark jeans or simple black pants, a solid blazer or comfortable leggings.  If you balance the sheen and sparkle with more matte finish options, you’ll be well balanced instead of glimmering like a disco ball.
