all that glitters
Glitter is rife at the moment; even in my office we are surrounded by glitter shoes, glitter backdrops and most recently glitter spray paint (which was massively toxic and should definitely not have been used indoors). Not that I am complaining because lets face it what's not to love about glitter? Not only is it shiny and sparkly and pretty but it's also incredibly Christmassy and I bloody love Christmas. This week saw the introduction of Starbucks Christmas drinks so I think it's fair to say yuletide fun is fast approaching; I made a trip to my favourite shop Hobbycraft this weekend and bought some craft materials to make Christmas cards. Glitter will be making an appearance, obviously. In fashion terms, glorious glitter accessories are where it's at and Miu Miu is certainly sparkling this season; their glitter boots are exactly the right mix of gaudy and glamorous and I want them on my feet NOW. For a more subtle shimmer I'll be wearing glitter nails in rich jewel tones to jazz up day-today outfits.
