Pep Fiction

Raise your hand if you’re Bed Bath and Beyond done with this cold weather.

I’m patiently waiting for spring and planning out all the fantastic outfits I’ll wear once I stop needing to pile on layers of shapeless clothing to avoid hypothermia. I have a vision of incorporating fall pieces with flouncy skirts. I’ve been eyeing several leather peplum shirts as my takeaway from fall, and have been inspired by these posts (one and two) from my favorite fashion blogger.

What spring styles are you ready to wear? I haven’t even begun to imagine all the dress/jacket combinations and I’m pretty sure I’m going to restock my closet with new bright flats. Ah!

Wrapped in Sequins

Every year I tell myself that I am going to buy a sequin dress for New Years and never do. I try them on at the store, but get too shy about wearing them in public.

THIS ENDS NOW.

I’m still on the hunt for the perfect sequin dress, but these three have caught my eye.

Depending on where you live, it may be too cold to wear these dresses as is. I suggest wearing a blazer, such as this one from H&M. It’s not exactly a breakthrough in fashion, but it’s a classic look and easy to wear. These dresses are also short enough to be worn tunic-style over leggings for colder areas, and would be a nice peekaboo sparkle under the over sized puffy parka you’ll have to live in until April. I’ve been there.

If a sequined dress is too much for you, I suggest blinding everyone with your feet. Bar hoppers will think you stole the ball from Times Square when you stumble in wearing these babies. I said stumble because I assume you’ll be drinking and let’s face it, you’ll wear the heels despite how much they hurt and end up taking a cab back home, your glittery heels in one hand, a pair of Tieks now sitting comfortably on your feet.

Ooooh aaaahhh. Pretty. Sparkly. Shiny. That is all.

Have you decided on what you’re going to wear for New Years? Do you have any great plans? Will this be the year YOU wear a sparkly dress? Let me know!

Have a great Thursday and thank you for reading.
