All that glitters…

I’m really loving metallics at the moment. I love shiny things at the best of times, but I think I’m so desperate to shed black and dark layers so I’m literally embracing the light! I remembered this Marc Jacobs dress which Kate Moss wore to the Met Institute ball last year, and I totally fell in lust. 

I’m really loving Grecian or goddess style dresses. Every girl needs a killer dress which makes her feel like a million bucks. My mission right now is to find something like this without the £2,000+ price tag!

    Hello…I'm new to the fashion blogging world so am slowly finding my way around. One link leads to another to another and I'm commenting all over the world now!I love metallics as well.I do love this dress that she wore to the Met Ball (yes?), even though it was panned because of the Gloria Swanson turban!! I loved this look. It was dramatic and theatrical and served its purpose.Hope you find your killer dress…~peace~ Dusk

    Have you tried Aqua Couture? They're stocked at ASOS and they make a lot of dramatic, drapey dresses like this one. Might be worth a try!x

    Just saw your comment on Jen (Style Crusader)'s blog – 'vag head' – laughed OUT LOUD as that's what I thought when I realised I'd shot him.. it only hit me after what it was. I know what you mean, this is exactly what's happening to me: I am spurning all things black, dark, and unshiny, and being drawn to all that glitters, and the light.Lovely blog! Adding your to my roll (UK style)jill @ x
