The sequins on the cardigan add just a little bit of sparkle which is almost enough for the day time, but it needed something else. I added a new ring that I treated myself to on the weekend (from New Look). I couldn't resist because it is just so big and bold. I also painted my nails with new OPI glitter polish that I treated myself to last week, to ensure that I had plenty of sparkle. Today just looking at my sparkly hands made me very happy.
I have treated myself to quite a bit lately so might have to slow down a bit now. That is after I have received my treat from the Liberty sale which should be here soon!
On Saturday night Mr Style Eyes cooked me lamb and feta burgers- very yummy. I decided to get a bit dressed up as we don't often get the chance to go out in the evening so I feel I ought to make an effort or I might start to descend into tracksuit mode. The few Saturday nights that I have out are just not enough to wear all of the outfits that I want to wear - perhaps I just have too many clothes.
I wore my pencil skirt (M & S but from a second hand shop), a very old top which I bought from Dorothy Perkins about 8 years ago and a vintage jacket by Paul Costelloe. I love embroidered gold dots on the jacket and the satin quilted fabric but have never managed to wear it. It is part of suit (with a matching pencil skirt) that I bought from the local second hand shop but it has big shoulder pads which I have never been able to make work with any outfits. Funily enough in the photograph the shoulders do seem to look nearly as exaggerated as they do in real life. I would love to wear it in the daytime to add a bit of sparkle and may well have to give this a try.
How do you add a bit of sparkle to your day?
With warmest wishes
