Fashion Friday...Sparkle & Shine

Who said that a little sparkle was only for the holiday season? I always get a little bummed when NYE passes us by and I am told to put away my sequins for next year. So today I decided to be a bit rebellious and break out the sparkle anyway!

Sure I got a few funny looks at the office but they made me happy and let's face it, I get strange looks anyway...

Sequin Beret: F21 (last season)
Leopard Blouse: Target
Dress: Anna Sui for Target (couple of years ago)
Granny Sweater: Local antique shop (only $5.00!!!)
Tights: JCP
Oxfords: Boutique 9 via 6PM.com

I love this outfit and so many things about it, for instance it makes me feel young and carefree. There is just something about a dress with pockets that can do that for a girl, I highly suggest everyone invest in a dress with pockets! I love the mix of the leopard and tweed and shine, I love the colored tights and most of all I LOVE my cozy granny sweater! I have been hoping to find one in good condition at a great price and when I saw this gem I was tickled pink when the owner of the shop said it was mine for five bucks!

Here's to a great start for the weekend full of fun and family...

  1. It's really just perfect. I'm a firm believer that sequins should ALWAYS be worn. A little sparkle never hurt anyone. And I love the tights you paired with it! You look just lovely.

  2. I love the outfit! I think the people who were giving you funny looks were jealous. heehee. I found your blog through the Texas eatsy group.
