About a dress

I spend the better part of my day dreaming about blue skies, cool wind, vibrant flowers and me twirling around like an idiot in a nude dress and a sparkly necklace.

I have my eye on a few blush and cream options for spring.

1. Zara Faux Leather Dress
2. American Eagle Lace Party Dress
3. TopShop Textured Seam Tunic

My skin tone is still way too light for these dresses, but as soon as my body no longer resembles a block of Philadelphia cream cheese, I am buying a nude dress.

To compliment the flirty feminine hue, a sparkly bib is a great addition to add a punch of personality and complete awesome.

1. Baublebar Eve Foliage Bib
2. Stella & Dot Somervell Necklace
3. Forever 21 Be Seen Iridescent Bib

Having once been an advocate for dainty necklaces and unique charms, I have been converted to statement necklaces. I can’t get enough. I want to collect them. I want to own so many that my family becomes concerned and I end up on an episode of Hoarders. Do they still air that show? I hope so, because I need help.

What pieces are you excited to wear for spring? Do you have a current obsession that may result in an intervention? Let’s start a support group.

Wrapped in Sequins

Every year I tell myself that I am going to buy a sequin dress for New Years and never do. I try them on at the store, but get too shy about wearing them in public.

THIS ENDS NOW.

I’m still on the hunt for the perfect sequin dress, but these three have caught my eye.

TOPSHOP – Sequin Velvet Dress

Depending on where you live, it may be too cold to wear these dresses as is. I suggest wearing a blazer, such as this one from H&M. It’s not exactly a breakthrough in fashion, but it’s a classic look and easy to wear. These dresses are also short enough to be worn tunic-style over leggings for colder areas, and would be a nice peekaboo sparkle under the over sized puffy parka you’ll have to live in until April. I’ve been there.

If a sequined dress is too much for you, I suggest blinding everyone with your feet. Bar hoppers will think you stole the ball from Times Square when you stumble in wearing these babies. I said stumble because I assume you’ll be drinking and let’s face it, you’ll wear the heels despite how much they hurt and end up taking a cab back home, your glittery heels in one hand, a pair of Tieks now sitting comfortably on your feet.

Badgley Mischka – Dixi
Michael Kors – Sinclair Glittered Cap-Toe Pump

Ooooh aaaahhh. Pretty. Sparkly. Shiny. That is all.

Have you decided on what you’re going to wear for New Years? Do you have any great plans? Will this be the year YOU wear a sparkly dress? Let me know!

Have a great Thursday and thank you for reading.
