Say it with me, “sparkles are always a good idea”.

Am I right? They’re just the thing to add a little something to any outfit. In the spirit of getting more excited for the holidays I thought I’d wear my favorite sequin Calvin Klein skirt; I paired it with some leather and tights and I felt ready to go.

As far as where I went, well I only stepped outside into the alley behind my apartment because it was pouring down rain, BUT I got out none the less. Mixing textures like sequins and leather is something I’m trying to make an effort at doing more.

I’ve said it many times, but I really do love Seattle, no matter where in the world I have had the chance to travel to, I always love being home in the city that inspires me every single day.
