Shiny Thursday - Wearing My Heart

And here we are, the eve of my extra-long weekend! I'm so excited I'm shining!
Yes, that is a very shiny dress! It's not quite as shiny in person - the overall effect is shiny, yes, but the turquoise and purple of the pattern are more obvious.

  • Dress - Max & Co.; purchased here in Florence last month
  • Shoes - Pearl Hart Bellevues, Fluevog; last seen here in July with watercolours and bark

I liked how the blue tights pulled the shoes and the dress together, and the cabling pattern of the tights echoed the pattern of the dress' fabric.
Wah! Contrast-y back! People were constantly ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the dress. Wearing shiny is fun!

The stuff:
Lovely shoes - I walked several blocks in them, and worked late (again). No foot pain.

Gold bling:
I can see myself in my heart (that sounds more profound than it is). I had fun showing people my "boyfriends" inside it, hee hee (click here if you don't know what I'm talking about).

  • Belt - vintage; gift from mother-in-law
  • Heart necklace - local; gift from L
  • Lapis lazuli ring and Fulvia ring - the awesome Wendy Brandes
  • Earrings - local

And now...I'm getting my long weekend on! It's our big company Christmas party on Saturday night and I have an awesome outfit planned! Enjoy your Thanksgiving (my US friends) and have a lovely week and weekend, my other global comrades.
