I am not a big fan of sparkle. Or at least not on myself. Even my jewelry choices reflect that as I love aged or matte metals, unpolished stones and the next man who proposes to me should not do so with a diamond. I tend to pick sequins off clothing and avoid items with metallic threads. I also avoid items with glued on sparkly bits, crystal embellishments I suppose they are. BUT recently I bought two items that are sparkle-adorned. I'm sure it would be considered minimal by any sparkle connoisseurs out there but I did briefly consider removing them and then decided not to mostly out of concern for causing damage to the fabric. I confess I will not be terribly disappointed if they come off over time or dissolve in the wash.
The first sparkly item is this adorable denim vest, or waistcoat as my British friends would say. The sparkles don't show up at a distance in the photos but even a close up barely captures them.
Sophie approves of the vest and has given it a taste test just to make sure.
I took these glowing white legs for a walk with my son last night. First he came over for a haircut and I asked for his help in pulling my very heavy bed into the middle of my room. I am in the process of painting the room and I'm sure it will take me at least a week. Then we went out for some ice cream and a walk around the air park. I was too busy being happy to have an outing with my son to remember to take my camera.
Final note: That pose in the last picture is rather like how I actually tend to stand, minus the hand on hip. My ex complained about it and said I was always tripping him. Yes, how dare I take up all that space! As you can see, I got rid of the man and not my stance.
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
