Fashion Magpie

Ok I confess, I love shiny things. Ever since I was little I was automatically drawn to things which glisten and glint. It’s like a compulsion. The only thing worse than shiny things are shiny shoes, there’s no helping me if there’s a shiny shoe in sight. So really, purchasing two shoes when I should have been shopping for presents isn’t my fault you see….

    I agree glitzy shoes are worse than shiny things. Hard to resist!

    Haha, I love shiny things too. It’s gotten to a point where I have to berate myself before I walk into this specialised vintage store that stocks tons of sequinned/shiny tops/skirts/other. Haha, nonetheless, loving the shoes πŸ™‚

    Ooooh those shoes are dynamite! I love shiny things too :DPS. Yay for new make up! For a smokey eye just put the lighter colour in the socket and the darker one in the crease and outer corner of your eye – smudge it in a little and you’ll look perfect πŸ˜€
