Sparkle and Shine

 I chose an outfit today that had some sequins so I can participate in the EBEW event. But clicking on their website now I am not sure if they are still hosting. I guess we'll find out.

The inspiration came from the November 2011 issue of Lucky Magazine. It was the 'letters to editor' page I think and they had this hand drawn outfit:
 I liked the idea of pairing magenta with camel colors and sequins....
To create the sequined top I layered my new camel cowl neck tunic under the sequined tank.
This tunic is great. Love its long and lean cut. And it is tissue thin.




Although I was worried about adding more shine to the outfit I still went ahead and added these:


 Since it was cold and rainy I added a trench coat and the magenta beret I bought a while back but had not worn yet.


And once again my umbrella happens to match perfectly.

Trench Coat - Guess
Sequin Tank - Charlotte Russe
Cowl Neck Sweater, Jeans, Accessories, Hat - Forever 21
Heels - Steve Madden
Tote - LV
Umbrella - Coach

TODAY:
Since my son was sick today we didn't go to preschool. And of course it was pouring so no park outing either. I came up with taking them to Ikea. We bought some everyday water glasses, a duvet cover for my son and bath sponges. Random I know. Then my parents met us there for lunch. My son was fading fast again so we came home and he thankfully listened to me and did take a nap. It was a quiet afternoon at home.
