All That Glitters

Hi Kiddies!

How do I love glitter? Let me count the ways… While I’m not going to actually count the ways I think most women (and a few men) LOVE some glittery goodness. No matter how hard I try and think of it as a novelty it somehow draws me in, whispers in my ear and says… “I am a wardrobe staple. We will always be together. Get used to it” ūüėČ I may not be as¬†obsessed as¬†others about the shiny stuff but that doesn’t mean I don’t get pretty darn excited about glitter pants when I see them. Do you have a thing for glitter?

P1000814 749x1000  All That GlittersP1000808 808x1000  All That GlittersPrior to attending IFBCON & LuckyFabb in New York I made the¬†obligatory¬†shopping trip to see if there was anything I “needed” (Don’t tell me you haven’t done that before). While¬†perusing¬†the racks of H&M I came to a complete¬†halt¬†when I saw these¬†lovelies!¬†¬†Mind you the store was crazy busy, I’d tried on a ton of things, picked out a few and was ready to get the heck outta there. Just then the glitter caught my eye. I knew then I’d get back in line for the dressing room with all my crap so¬†I could take a chance on some sparkle. After emerging from the dressing room the second time I put everything else back and walked out of the store with only these pants. Victory (and glitter pants) was mine!¬†

P1000805 960x853  All That GlittersI took them on my New York trip planning to wear them for Fashion’s Night Out which is exactly what I did. But I hear you say “Nic, FNO was a month ago and you’re still going to show us these pictures?” You better believe it! So yes, I apologize for the delay, but not for showing you the pants. That night I was out with my cousin and another friend and we had a great time. Don’t these ladies look amazing? The floral dress my cousin is wearing is mine, but I love they way she styled it to toughen up the sweetness factor. Our other friend Summer looked gorgeous and being that we’re all native Carolina girls it made for a special evening.

These pictures were taken at BCBG and I’m in love with the gold vine background. Can I have that in my house please? With the pants being such a statement piece I wanted to keep the rest of the look rather simple. Being short on time I couldn’t find exactly the top I wanted but this tank allows the glitter to take center stage. I LOVE these purple suede pumps and bought them while I was in the city. I might have worn something else if I’d had access to my entire closet but I adore the pop of color they add to the look. The same goes for this great Rebecca Minkoff bag . It’s one of my favorites but I may choose something slightly different next time. Since there was already a big shiny factor to my look I keep the jewelry rather minimal with just some statement earrings and bracelets. What do you think? Were my glitter pants worth a little extra dressing room wait time? FNO worthy? Next time I’m thinking of a silk blouse paired with them but how would you style them for a night out?

P1000811 960x719  All That GlittersFollowing FNO festivities we met some friends for a late dinner. I broke off afterwards and met another friend for drinks. He was driving his Vespa and while I think they‚Äôre cute I‚Äôm not a¬†motorcycle¬†or motorini kinda girl (I don‚Äôt look good in road rash, understand?). Motor bikes have always scared me but since we¬†weren’t¬†too far from my cousins place I agreed to be¬†charioted¬†home on the Vespa. Was it fun? Yes and I even kept the bugs out of my teeth. Whoo hoo! I‚Äôd¬†definitely¬†ride a motorini again but you won‚Äôt catch me on the highway anytime soon.
