All that glitters

On a day like today  (it has been bucketing down since the middle of the night)I certainly need some sparkle in my life, so how fortuitous that the postman should bring me this Zara gold sequin skirt (via ebay)! Off came the boring jeans and on went the skirt. I’d love a navy textured knit to go with it and I’ve searched everywhere to no avail so I think I might have to knit one myself. At the rate I knit these days it should be ready for A/W 2013 though! Making do with an old navy cashmere jumper for now, I’ll have a root through the cupboards to see what else it will go with. Any ideas?

By now you’ll have seen that I’m a bit of a magpie, with my gold Mulberry bag, a couple of pairs of gold trainers, boots with gold heels, and my desire for sparkly things is unabated. I recently spotted these gold heeled boots in Dune, inspired by Celine boots from a couple of winters ago. The  lovely round toe is right up my street, but the heel is too high for me to wear every day.

Eve and I have been dreaming about these Maje boots for a while now, I tried them on (again) yesterday, but have decided they are a tad too cowboyish in shape, so I am crossing them off my list. Phew.

Then I spotted these in a Zadig &Voltaire ad in Grazia. Swoon. But they are not on their website and the staff in the Z&V concession in Brown Thomas had never seen them before. Hmm.

My final sparkly spotting is much more affordable, and would be a really good buy for winter I think, from River Island. Soft and fuzzy charcoal grey with sparkles, it looks much nicer in real life than on their site. Given the weather forecast I heard this morning, we’ll all be needing something to brighten up our days for the next while.
