friday's fancies #13: sparkle & shine.

friday's fancies #13: sparkle & shine



i have a feeling you could see me coming a mile away in this get-up, & i'll tell you what: i don't hate it.

as of late, i've been drawn to more muted, reserved, chic styles, but when {av} over at {long distance loving} chose 'sparkle & shine' as this week's theme, i was admittedly thrilled. it's been too long since i broke out the glitter polish, & this deborah lippmann selection - in do ya think i'm sexy - was irresistable to me. the only other real pop of color in this look would be the lipstick - nars pure matte lipstick in vesuvio. i chose a matte lip because i feel like it would stand out next to all the sparkle going on - & add a really chic element to the all-out glitz-fest going on here.

as you may have guessed, i will be attending a wedding on saturday, & if there were no budgetary limitations in this world, i would absolutely be donning this gorgeous marchesa sequined silk mini dress. i love the 'mixed metal' color scheme, as well as the sassy silhouette. i decided to forego the classic & expected black tights, black shoes look, & went for something a little more exciting: khaki tights with a hint of sheen, as well as some fabulous miu miu gold glitter peep toe pumps. to bring out the darker tones hidden in the dress, i'd happily wear this michael by michael kors large grayson satchel in black (a bag that has always been on my wish list), as well as this understated bayswater black suede bracelet by mulberry. the gold concentric circle drop earrings add one more touch of funky flair, with which this outfit is already brimming. for hair, i'd go with my signature look as of late, hair thrown up into a chic side-bun, with curled pieces framing my face.

all i can say as i view this outfit is, 'if only...'
