*all that glitters is not gold*

i was cleaning up/putting away clothes in my closet & this sweater happened to fall against this dress.  i can’t believe i never thought to combine them before with all the glittery gloriousness!  admittedly, it was a little much for treating clients in my office, but my regulars are used to (& dare i even say appreciate) my extravagant wear sometimes :)  i wanted to look nice for a friend’s birthday dinner that night & i didn’t have time to go home to change.

love these old ankle booties too with all the grommet, buckle, hook & eye  & suede detail.  ever notice they don’t make booties like this anymore?  they now all seem to have zippers up the inner side.  no likey :(

wearing: express silver glitter sweater || h&m bronze/silver glitter dress || swapped silver filigree bracelet || aldo outlet earrings & ankle boots

*happy new year from times square!*

can’t believe it’s a week into the new year & this is my first post!  you know how it is after a vacation though, so hard to get back into a routine :(  over the holidays, i spent one week in california, one night in philadelphia & then 2 days in new york!  i won’t bore you with the specific details, but my husband surprised me with doing times square for new year’s eve!  i’ve never done that before!  he even coordinated to have 2 friends & my brother celebrate the new year with us!  that was the biggest & best surprise EVER!  

needless to say, since it was a surprise, i didn’t have any new year’s eve type clothing to wear :(  luckily, before leaving PA, quick stops at TJ maxx & kohl’s saved me!  i actually really love this dress i found.  mostly gold, but had dark silver threads running through, so in different lights, looked either white gold or gunmetal silver.  it was a great flowy length too, almost grecian in design.  all that extra fabric kept me warm & i definitely felt more comfortable than i would have in a shorter, clingier dress.  i was extra pleased as well with how my friend from portland, oregon & i were surreptitiously & unknowningly coordinated in our outfits…me in white/gold & her in black/sparkly silver!  it was the PERFECT start to 2013 ^_^ 

wearing: elie tahari metallic dress (TJ maxx) || winter kate silk kimono jacket || ann taylor & vintage necklaces || dana buchman heels (kohl’s)
