Fashion Musings | Editorial: Glittering Nights & Flashing Lights
Could remember my love for all things sparkly since I was young, but could never find just the right amount of sparkle on a skirt or a blouse without bordering an '80s costume vibe. Just recently coveted a black sequin pencil skirt with the sexiest little side slit just before 2013 ended and in time for a little new year's eve rendezvous, and shortly after, a silver mermaid sequin skirt and it was then that I knew my sparkle madness had only just begun!
There's only one thing more perfect than exploring the city itself - and that's wearing something glitzy while exploring the city at night. The Lane's "Glittering Nights" bridal spread proves that the flashing lights and gritty streets of the city life is the perfect juxtaposing backdrop for such glorious, opulent dresses.
And there's something about the disheveled glamour and effortless prose of the wild-hearted LANE lady in these photos that takes me back to the night of New Year's Eve when M and I quietly spent time together nearby my apartment, all dressed up for the occasion of the holiday, but not for the occasion of a midnight movie viewing. Am now certain that a sequin skirt is a must for my next night out in the city...perhaps for M's birthday or our upcoming anniversary dinner?
