Bow Down To The Bow

I was watching “Live with Kelly and Michael” and couldn’t help but be distracted by Kelly Ripa’s gorgeous gold heels. They sparkled and managed to steal my attention from Jake Gyllenhaal, but just for a minute.

Kelly’s heels were the perfect light shade of gold and are made by Lucy Choi London. These glitter finished pumps are 4.5 inches and feature a bow embellished toe with a leather cushioned footbed for added comfort. They easily dress up any outfit and can even be worn during the day. They are classy, with a little pop of pizzazz that elevates them into coveted status. I am lusting after this look for the holidays and always love a little sparkle.

Barrettes

Barrettes have come a long way since the 80’s. Remember those little plasticĀ barrettes made by Goody that your mom used to pin your hair out of your face for school? I loved those!

The barrettes I see today are beautiful, ornate, and fit for the red carpet. I love the gold grecian leaf designs, crystal embellished styles, and leather studded ones. The femininity and delicate details are what draw me to them. I picture myself wearing a beautiful dress with my loose waves pinned back into a barrette or wearing jeans and a white tee with straight hair pinned in a leather rocker inspired version.

The bonus of wearing a barrette is keeping the hair out of your face and easily being able to unsnap the closure and change your hairstyle quickly. The pretty little metal detail is sure to finish your outfit and bring back those fond grade school memories.

I have pictured my favorites by Jennifer Behr, Henri Bendel, and others.
