You were drawn in by the blatant Spandau Ballet reference yes or no? I’m voting a big fat yes.
I am of the strong opinion that glitter solves everything. Glitter makes even the dullest of outfits subtly (or not so subtly) snazzy, so I thought I’d show you how I like to style it.
Embarrassingly, James asked if I had fake tanned my ankles for this outfit. The answer was yes. Not soz..
I like to inject bits of glitter and gold and silver (and literally anything with sequins) into my everyday outfits. My two most recent editions being these fabby fab slip on trainers and THIS glitter back pack.
I was gifted this bag by my soulmate and all round beauty queen, Ellie, for Christmas and I’m sure a couple of tears were shed when I opened it. She just knows, that gal.
Would you believe that it hasn’t left my side since? As yet, I haven’t had to fight my mum for custody over it, but I think that day may be on the horizon. It is SO sparkly! I also am a major fan of the fact that the strap doubles up as a cross body strap so it can be worn as more of a handbag.
The shoes were an absolute sale bargain from Asos and were my attempt at rebellion. I’m not a trainer person. Wow, that feels good to get out in the open. The closest I’ve got to owning a pair is my black converse which I wore to the point that I’m sure they grew legs and ran away…
I knew I needed some comfy shoes that I could wear daily that weren’t black boots, and these gold wonders were the best compromise I could find. I am in love. The cute little D-Ring detail and the v crinkly fabric is so funky and even though they are gold, they’re still super versatile and I’ve been pairing them with so many outfits.
Also massive creds to James for finding a wall with Jam written on it. How hip and cool.
