all that glitters

Where did that weekend go? Really sad it’s over. I met up with new friends, caught up with old ones, and still had time to relax and catch my breath after a manic second week at my new job. Friday night at the BlogTour2011 event was fantastic. Not only did we gather in Sir Terence’s old apartment near Tower Bridge (think big windows, open-plan, gorgeous wooden decking) and learn about the Conran for M&S collection, but I got to meet a lot of talented designers and bloggers that have only been names to me before now, from both the UK and the US. I love the blogging community, so glad to be a part of it.

Onto today’s post and something that has always been close to my heart. Glitter. When I was about 16 and my friends and I used to go out (to Quasar or somewhere glamorous like that), we used to get ready together all dipping our fingers in pots of glitter, dousing our eyelids and cheekbones, and telling each other, “you can never have enough.” Ergo we used to go out looking like the Cullen family when they step into daylight. Here is some sparkly inspiration that caught my eye:

I still adore anything glittery to this day, and the item that stood out to me the most at New York and London fashion weeks wasn’t necessarily a garment on the catwalk, it was the uh-may-zing Miu Miu glitter booties that a lucky few were parading about in. I don’t think I go anywhere lavish enough to wear them without looking like I had raided a fancy dress box, but boy do they look pretty on other people’s feet:
