Shine On!

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Good morning, lovelies! There's finally a real chill in the air and besides the normal craving of sweaters, layers and boots I'm also in a shimmering state of mind. It's not unusual for me. I love shimmer and shine and have quite a few items already in my wardrobe but I can't help want for more.

I've been dying to get a pair of Miu Miu crisscross glitter ankle booties since they walked down the runway back in the spring. I mean how fabulous are they??? Also I need a new sequined clutch. Just trying to decide which color to go with. I already have a black one so I'm thinking either gold or silver. Which would you go with?

So how bout you? Do you love to shine on like me?

Enjoy the day, sweets! xoxo

I love sparkles! I have two dresses, a top and a skirt, and shoes. A clutch would be great too. I'd probably go with the gold...but why choose one ;)

Not really my style and the Miu Miu booties are definitely not me, but I love how others wear sequins so effortlessly. Have a beautiful Tuesday, Dawn!

Am totally in love with the Miu Miu shoe collection. Love the sparkles, the shape of the heels, everything!

Ahh tough choice...think gold, but they are both lovely. Sparkles are key to making a wardrobe flashy!!!

The gold looks lovely. Bit warmer for the fall/winter season.

I'm sorry, did someone say SEQUINS? Sequins are just about my favorite thing in the world. I have a VS sequin skirt I adore...and sometimes wear while vacuuming (I mean, what else would you wear?)

{The Perfect Palette} said...

anything shiny or sequined is a favorite of mine. So divine!!

Lara {simply irresistible} said...

Sparkles and sequins make me smile.. and want to get dressed up and go out on the town. Love these photos dear!

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

You know I love to shine on, Dawn! What gorgeous samples of sparkle too! And what better season to sparkle (as my new fall card says ... it's the glamorous season when trees dress up in ballgowns and throw glitter as we pass!) Don't you just love fall?!?!
Have a fabulously glittery Autumn, sweets! xoxo

I'll let you do all the shining ;-) Well, I have had a crush on a gold cardigan that I saw but it's somehow low key shining.

But my 6 y.o. son would definitely dig your shiny style!

Katie said...

Love a sequin clutch :) I say whichever one you'd get more wear out of!

B. in the Know said...

Oh I am always loving the sparkle - and have been feeling an urge to bust it out again. I would love to wear a pair of those Mui Mui's for my birthday next week!

Tamra {walkswithBella} said...

Ohhh those mui mui booties are tempting me everywhere. I completely stalked a girl when i was in capri, i was trying to take a picture of her sequined booties in action. They are divine!! However, as much as I love them, I wonder how often I would wear them. Every time I walked Bella ofcourse! xo

Julip Made said...

I've been eying a sequined clutch/ wallet from Zara, which also happens to be completely reasonably priced. I'm looking forward to incpororating it with the heavier, more grounded fall piece like tweed blazers and riding boots!
Hope you are having a fantastic week!
