Happy 2013 everyone! It’s a new year, my site has a few shiny new updates, and I’m ready to conquer the world! :)
On to my current obsessions… The cold weather has me drawn to pretty fur accents and chunky knits to keep me pretty and warm. And I’m always a sucker for metallics, but I’ve been particularly wanting shoes in various golds and silvers lately. And when it comes to my color crush at the moment, it’s all about wine color shades of red. Such a pretty rich color to add to your winter outfit! Of all the wine colored pieces I added to my list, I’m really going to need those pants. In fact, how perfect would the fur vest, wine pants, and gold booties look together with a long sleeve striped or polka dotted top? Time to go shopping!
Capped toe shoes may possibly be my favorite trend of the moment. I love contrast in color and texture on pretty much anything, but especially on a pair of shoes. Bright colors, neutrals, metals, studs, sequins. So many possibilities.
And what’s got me all kinds of excited is while hunting for the perfect pairs for my post, I discovered several DIY’s for this type of shoe. Now, I am definitely not someone you would call crafty, but all of these tutorials seem easy enough. Plus, who doesn’t want to save a few bucks and still have cute shoes? I can’t wait to try it out. I already have a ton of different color/texture combos swirling in my mind to create. I’ll make sure to post any that I attempt!
Here’s the links to the tutorials to check out. There’s one using acrylic paint, one using nail polish (yes, nail polish. LOVE!), and one I’m extremely smitten over: glitter capped toes. That will be the first one I try. Glitter anything is alright by me.
With summer rapidly approaching, I’ve had metallic gold tones on the brain when it comes to items I’d like to add to my wardrobe. The shimmery, warm color is just begging to be worn in the sunshine. Rosy gold is the loveliest of gold hues in my book. It’s the perfect marriage of beige, gold and pale pink/peachy hues. These are my must haves.
PS. Are those flats not the cutest things you’ve ever seen? So in love!
