Dear Carrie,

I know it is not a competion, but Blugirl gets the gold, and Hervé Léger the silver. Bronze is not shiny enough to hand out today ;)

I think that it might be nice to be a Magpie for a day. Or an evening.

Have a glittery weekend...

Metallic is def savvy for spring. I got a pair of metallic shoes as accent instead of a metallic dress. : )

Rachel Roy PLEASE!!!! I'm not a big metallic fan (unless it's on my feet, i.e. shoes) but that RR dress is exquisite.
