For some, it’s a trend, for others – a necessity, but whatever your reasons are, a little bit of glitter really does add a special flirty touch to an outfit and can even change the way you get through your day. Since Miu Miu sparkling beauties hit the catwalk, glitter and sequins became almost an obsession. I guess, every girl has a bit of a princess and a bit of a magpie in her, so I’ve come up with a long list of treats from make-up and perfume to clothes, shoes and accessories.
Personally, I feel that one doesn’t need to spend an annual wardrobe budget on something that sparkles unless, of course, this is something you want and will wear regularly. For the rest of us it’s safer and sensible to stick with an accessory, less expensive top or dress or just a nail polish just for a special touch that will carry us through a season or two and go with everything we’ve already got in our wardrobes.
