Zara Sparkle Love: Glossy Ballerinas + THE Sequin Clutch

15 December 2011

It's official, I have a problem. I'm obsessed with sparkly things and apparently those from Zara in particular. I've always been into a few sparkles here and there, a touch of sequin embellishment can lift any outfit from drab to delightful. The thing is though, everything and I mean EVERYTHING I am buying lately is sparkly in some way.

Since September I have been lusting after the now quite famous Zara gold sequined wallet. If you read even a handful of fashion blogs you'll know the one I mean, it's popped up on my reader so many times, it's been haunting me. Well, I kept checking the Zara's in Korea and online but to no avail. It was sold out everywhere it seemed. Despite this I included it in my Christmas wishlist, hoping that someone else might have more luck tracking it down. Then, low and behold I walked into Zara and underneath the arm of a mannequin there sat what must have been the last one...in all the Zaras...in all the world, or so it seemed to me. Maybe I'm being a bit dramatic. Anyway, the point is, it's finally mine. Yeeeeaaaaah!!!

Zara Gold Sequin Wallet {Clutch} - It's mine! Yay!

 

Even the lining of this bad boy is pretty! I love it and I think it's the perfect addition to my Christmas wardrobe. I was told by Zara when I called a little while ago about this clutch that they may be getting more in-stock soon so if you too are dying to have one of these keep checking online for them. If you really reaaaally need one, you can pay over double the price on eBay.

My other Zara find was an amazing pair of rhinestone encrusted ballerina flats! I spotted them twinkling under the bright shop lights and had to (yes, had to) have them! Unfortunately you can't fully capture the sparkliness of them in photos so I nabbed a pic off Zara's website to go along with my own. It's slightly better but still doesn't do them justice. In real life the overall effect looks amazing, they sparkle so much.

If you like them, they are available online - here.

I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to wear these yet but I'm thinking they might be perfect for Christmas day with a simple dress and tights combination. What do you think? Do you like them or am I going too far with my magpie tendencies??
