Atten-TION! Happy 2012, lovelies!
This is my official 2011 farewell and salute to the New Year, and I just had to do it in my military-inspired Glitterati by Pretty Shiny Sparkly shirt. Yeah, you know the one my blogging bud Kristina of Pretty Shiny Sparkly) designed? Well, sorry you missed the chance to scoop one up, because it is ab fab in real life! Unctuous olive green silk punctuated by patches of square gold sequins? Um, yes please!
As feminine as this shirt can be, I couldn’t help but go full military with it. Or maybe it’s biker/rocker/military? I don’t know, but however you label this look, I can assure you of one thing, it is empowering! And I’m sure when I pair it with wide-leg pants for the the office, it will be just as attention-getting. If I can’t blind them with my brilliance, no doubt the glint of my sequins will!
*WVW = What V Wore

You know what else I love about this shirt? Other than it’s gorge? I love that it came with a personal note from Kristina, and that every time I wear it, I think of her. I never would have met Kristina if it weren’t for the blog. It’s people like her, people like YOU that keep me coming back to the keyboard.
I just acquired this trifecta of gold-smothered deliciousness from Stella & Dot, and you know what? This photo (which is a close-up of the bracelets I’m wearing above) has been my most loved Instagram photo this year! And that they’re a perfect complement to my Glitterati shirt? Coincidence? I think not. For those of you who’ve asked, links appear below.
Thanks for making 2011 one hell of a year, y’all! Without you, I’d just be a girl in a room with her thoughts. Thank you for your continued support, tweets, shares, friendship, inspiration, and love. May 2012 be filled with sparkles, dreams, joy, and profound happiness! Cheers!
