Shimmer Effect

I love to be covered in sparkles and shimmer for photo shoots! 
I think the best way to achieve that affect is with jewelry!! I'll be honest.. 
I don't wear tons of bracelets,necklaces and rings every single day.
Accessorizing can be a challenge! 
It takes time to pick the right pieces to style a look. 
I start with the hue and color of the dress or top I'm wearing,
and then color coordinate my accessories around that. 
This is an almost white light pink silk tunic top.
 The moment I saw it, I knew it'd be perfect to throw on over a bikini for the beach. 
I knew it needed a few sparkly pieces for it to stand out.

I chose silver rhinestone pieces and layered necklaces to match the jeweled bikini I'm wearing.
I gathered the jewelry pieces together the night before the actual shoot.
As much as I wish I could roll out of bed in the morning and just know what to style I can't! 
One of these days I need to show you my collection of accessories.
Its still growing and needs organizing!! 
I feel like one of the most important factors in putting looks together is organization!
Once my accessories are organized I'll give you a small tour of my humble little accessory collection.
I'm happy I can give you a few tips on how I style my looks.
As with anything worth while it takes time and patience.

Holiday Sparkle!

With the holidays comes a beautiful pallet of colors! 
Silver,and gold mixed with red,fuchsia,emerald,ruby,and jeweled purple tones. 
That's what inspired this post! 
The holidays allows us to get dressed up in glitter once a year! 
I know we usually view the holidays as a time of stress and overspending on gifts. 
Well lets take a break for a second and admire the beauty!! 
This entire outfit is vintage!! 
I love vintage clothing because I admire the colors,fabrics,and workmanship of the past. 
This metallic jacket is a vintage evening piece that I love!
Its so versatile,it can be worn with jeans, or a long evening dress!
The dress is a vintage 70s party dress. I love the color! 
Mauve and metallic silver are 2 hues that go so well together. 
This look turned out to be a brilliant mix of holiday sparkle!
I hope you sparkle as well this holiday season!
Take a break from all that stress to focus on yourself for a day
and become a shooting star.
Happy Holidays!
