Sparkle, Sparkle

Skirt: Thrifted / CK Top: Ross clearance / Gloves: Target / Belt, Monet Earrings & Necklace: Gabes / Shoes: Miz Mooz / Bracelets: Vintage, F21, AE

As I sit here trying to think of something witty to type about the sparkling ensemble I wore for no special reason { EBEW got me in the mood }, Slurpee is hiccuping at my feet while begging for my long gone sweet potato, of which she ate half.  Nothing like a Hound with a penchant for beta carotene and a myoclonic twitch to bring you back to the real world, where need for such fanciful outfits is minimal at best. {Though I do keep hoping the Husband will remember one more party he forgot to tell me about..

Not that lack of need has every stopped me from parading around in sparkles and velvet before. I've been planning this outfit for quite awhile, actually. Since Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince premiered, in fact. Don't judge. Remember the scene where Harry stands up at a dinner party when Ginny enters late? Well, friends, even before I delighted at Harry's awkwardly gentleman gesture for his taken crush, I noticed Ginny's outfit. Her sparkly blue and black outfit, to be precise. 

Fast forward a few years and I've acquired a similar top and skirt. Fast forward to last week, when I saw the plethora of sparkly black and blue on the Louis Vuitton Fall 2011 RTW runway { photos 50-51, specifically }, and I knew the time had come. Yes, it was a combination of Harry Potter and Louis Vuitton that brought me here. 

Suddenly, a hiccuping Hound who has found her way into my lap makes perfect sense.  

P.S. Sorry for the flashy flash. Our camera is quite old and with the teensy screen, it's difficult to tell if the level is okay.
