All that Sparkles..

Thursday, December 03, 2009

Had to rip these images straight out of this weeks LOOK magazine cos I just loved them!
The girl above's smokey eyes, nude lips, tousled hair is so relaxed glam.
You cant really see but the cardy has a glitter in the thread.
Image below is H&M the dress has panels of sequins and is £99..

Sequins, Glitter, Sparkles... the uniform of the holiday season, if you aren't wearing something shiny/disco ball esque then you just aren't in the Christmas party season. (apparently!)
Ive always been a fan of a bit of glitter or sequins, glitter eyeliner, sequin scarves but this season the trend is OTT sparkleyness!! I must say Im starting to love it, and its got me thinking what dress im gonna get for the Festive season. In my house we always dress up on Christmas day, we dont go anywhere or have anyone over but i dunno it always seems nice to dress up! (any excuse in my books!)

Asos Black Label

Asos Kint with oversized sequins

Costume Dept sequinned leggings, Love these! If only my legs were this long and slim!

This is the dress id chose, Warehouse sequinned beauty..just need £100.
which after all the christmas shopping for family its not gonna happen..sigh.
do you dress up on Christmas day? Will you be decking yourself out in sequins?
