Why Not Do a Little Dazzle?

After a lot of inspirational posts from many a lovely blogger, my senses have now turned to the thought of not being afraid to sparkle. Or at least letting your clothes sparkle. In my Spring fashion review for VOX, I noted sequins and many other glitzy accessories were runway staples. So I thought, why not practice what I preach?
Take a look at these glammed-up editorials. Whether it's a subtle accessory, or the outfit itself, each look inspires dazzle.

Let's not forget about the addiction-worthy Balmain!




This last dress makes me wish I was a ballerina

While we're on the topic of lovely, shiny things, I stumbled across this contest. A director from the LuShae Jewelry site told me that "The competition is drawn every month and there are no limitations on the number of entries or how long you can remain entered..." The odds seem pretty fair. Why not frost yourself for free? (technically by winning)...

Inspired to Ice yourself yet? ;)

Wow your Chanel necklace sounds beautiful. I want one too :) As for all things sparkly, I'm really not into that kind of detail. Not that I don't like it on other people but at this point in my life I'd just rather play with texture or prints than sequins. However, I adore all the images you selected, especially Lakshmi Menon in Dazed.

Hellos my love oh my gosh how are you?
I vanished for a while as a) I was poorly and b) my whole bloody blogger thing went down!

Gosh, this post makes me want to dive straight into a pool of sequins and glitter.That can only be a good thing surely!?
