I Sparkle

I don’t think there is a more appropriate place to wear a lamé dress than karaoke. I don’t plan to sing, though. I’ll just sit back with a Lemondrop and sparkle in the corner.


Cardi, Apt 9 (thrifted). Tee, Forever 21. Dress, American Apparel. Peggins, Bongo. Boots, Life Strides Earrings, self made. Scarf, gift. Coat, vintage.

I’ve worn this tee over this dress before, but with a cardigan on top, like today. I wish it were warm enough to lose the sweater.


I can’t complain too much about the cold, though, because it gives me a chance to wear this fabulous coat.

Not so fabulous: these boots. I bought them to wear to work, with pants, three years ago. I haven’t worn proper pants (i.e. not jeans or leggings) to work since September and I haven’t worn these boots since December 2007. They are just so so ugly and I’d rather wear my Isaac Mizrahi shabooties on the rare occasions I’m not in a skirt or dress at work.

It's a sparkly take on the Monet colors!

Hmm, I like the boots! But I am pretty bad at fashion, so maybe I just don't see it.

Okay, may I ask... what are "peggings"?

Marley said...

You look like the Snow Queen! Love it! Merry Christmas!

I love the color combo, very nice layering :)

I kind of made up "peggings." It's my word for thick, pants-like leggings. These have real back pockets, but faux front pockets and a faux fly.

ahahhaa you said shabooties! I am telling Dave is infiltrating the fashion lexicon!

Hurray for sparkly! I love anything that glitters, especially this time of year.

Would there be a way to make your boots more funky? After all, if you can bedazzle owls onto skirts, add mini-pom-pom trim to jackets, and make a necklace out of dyed doilies... well, I bet you could come up with something intriguing.

Hope you had a great Christmas, and I hope you DID sing at the karaoke. Nobody puts Kasimira in a corner!

Oh I lurve this! You are really getting good use out of that dress! I also love that color blue on you.

I love this outfit, so colourful and refreshing on a cold, winter day. And the boots look fab since you covered their length with the "peggings"!
