This is my kind of post. I just had spasms of delight, especially as I got towards the end and saw those sequin pictures. Stop killing me with the awesomeness, Couture Carrie!!

Amanda K said...

Very shiny and glam..

Ela said...

Fabulous photos, CC! And I love that 2nd one especially! I know a lot of bloggers don't love LV but I gotta say, I still fall head over heels everytime I've bought a new Louis. xx

dapper kid said...

My inner magpie is positively squawking at these dear! That Alexander McQueen look is so stunning. And I love the deep blue DvF dress top. Ooh and the Gucci metallic leopard print looks amazing. And wow at the Vera Wang resort dress, the gold and white looks beautiful.

Jaime said...

What a coincidence, I was actually thinking of doing a sparkle-y post today... I am wearing a pair of JCrew shiny bermudas from last summer and I saw this Prada bag! http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/ProductDetail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524446233991&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=282574492709740&ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id=1408474399545537&bmUID=1247752910649&ev19=1:3

I loved that gold prada number!! I adore shiny things but i'm not so much into sequins, when that trend became popular everyone just killed it for me.

All that glitters...is amazing! The Alexandre Herchcovitch look is stunning. The mix of pattern and shine adds such dimension. I also love the Thakoon Panichgul gown. It is so chic...great for a Met gala.

freeteyme said...

this post got me restless! I wanted a sequined dress so bad!

Brunch at Saks said...

I love all of these pieces! Sequins have always been tough for me because I never know if I can wear them before nightfall, and when I do wear them I'm always wondering if I look like a huge disco ball! But all of your choices here are just amazing- I wouldn't mind wearing any of these! :) XOXO

oskarsobsession said...

I LOVE alexander McQueen.
he is so interesting. his creations
are magnificent and very weird.
but from designs like that you expect the designer to be a little excentric
yet he looks like your everyday man.

great post shiny stuff is the best :)

Suusje Q. said...

I already have your link at my blog, Carrie! But thanks for adding mine at yours :)

I love lying at my back, head up and switch my legs while pointing them, supporting them with my hands under my knees. Do you know what I mean? Actually I love all the exercizes, execpt the one standing on your elbows and toes. It hurts my back! But after pilates I always feel so elegant and fit.

Xxx

i absolutely absolutely love bright shiny things.. so much so that just 2 days ago i just bought such a skirt myself... and ended up trying on another sequinned outfit i was gonna buy... but then got really upset and decided not to when i discovered in my haste to take the outfit off and go to the next store before the mall closed... id scratched my skin seriously with the sequin outfit.. wasnt fun at all.. tho i still dream of the outfit and might eventually still go on get it... sucker for pain right? lol
