Glitter Your Winter Wear

The fall weather is starting to creep in and cold weather wear is stocking the shelves.  I recently found myself at Express and Guess purchasing some cold weather attire where I was surrounded but glitter and sequenced tops and dresses.  They were being paired with large sweaters that hid most of the glam but gave it just the right touch.  The part that I found most appealing was when you paired a glitter tank with an over-sized sweater you had the opportunity to take off the sweater and have an evening ready outfit.  Needless to say I purchased some well-deserved outfits, that added the just right amount of bling to my winter wardrobe.

Now that I had these great outfits I started thinking about the finishing touches…what to do with my make-up?  Of course MAC is one step ahead of me with the winter make-up line “Glitter and Ice: Holiday Colour Collection.”  This new collection gives just a touch a glitter without being overpowering.  I would recommend a more natural overall make-up application with the lite application of a glitter shadow and a touch of color on the lips.  My personal favorite is to keep my lips natural with a touch of gloss but when I’m transforming my everyday winter outfit to an evening wear, I recommend breaking out some color that will transform the richness of your face.

What better way to complete a glittered up outfit then with the perfect feel good shoes.  Glitter Toms have been making a slash, giving you comfort while maintaining their charitable aspect.  I am a proud owner of a pair of black glitter Toms and I’m finding I can pair them with work outfits on casual days to keep a touch of glam.

Needless to say I would jump on the glitter bandwagon because it’s here and is a great way to bring in the holiday season!

Summer Dresses Continued….

Everyone loves a summer dress…they are cute, comfortable and easy to accessorize.  So why not continue wearing your summer dressed in the winter?  I went through my closet and found some great ways to dress up my summer dresses and make them winter wear friendly.

Add a high boot – not only are high boots great for keeping your legs warm but they can add a little kick that will make your summer look more winter.

Boots

Add a jacket or half sweater – Adding a jacket or half sweater can keep your shoulders warm and gives you the opportunity to add some color to the mix.  You can spice up a cute sun dress without adding all the accessories, some jackets have the buttons and zippers to do it for you.  www.bubbleroom.com

Add some leggings – When in dough add leggings.  They come in so many colors and prints now that you can find any style that will compliment a cute summer dress.  I have found the best selection at Forever 2.  Yes if you are a mature women you may feel a little silly surrounded but teens but you will not regret the visit with all the options.

I have already gone through my closet in preparation for the summer months.  It’s always a good idea to keep these simple tips in mind when your shopping in the summer months.  Making your wardrobe have a longer life span can only help your pocket books bottom line 🙂
