Born to Shimmer, Born to Shine


Carrie was a massive fan of sequins and admittedly whether it's Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall it's always nice to add a bit of sparkle to your wardrobe. It's true they are a fashion move to be used with caution, but if worn correctly they can turn heads like nothing else.





This gorgeous little number from Almost Famous London is made from silver silk with sequin detailing on the central panel. At £135.00 it is more of an investment piece but with it's sheer lines and shapely design this little baby will be earning it's place in your wardrobe for years to come.



This sequin adorned clutch would make the perfect accessory for your dress. Clutch handbags are not just big in the world of Sex and the City they are also this season's must-have handbag design. You can pick this one up for £27.99 from Isabella's Handbag Shop.



Last but by no means least you can finish off a sultry shimmering look with this gorgeous Betsey Johnson ice-queen-esque bangle. It is currently reduced at NordStrom from $35.00 to just $22.90 making it an absolute bargain for those looking for a timeless bit 'O' bling.

I love sparkly, sequinned, or satiny things! One of my fave buys last A/W was a sequinned beret :).

Every girl does deserve some sparkle :).

Sequins-- did someone say sequins? *perking up* :) Big time fan! BTW- I don't know if the universe is wanting to be shinier these days, but I've been noticing a lot of fashion related to shiny shiny things. I just blogged about this, too. Love the clutch!
