All That Glitters

Sequined cocktail dress and red patent belt, Forever 21. Faux leather jacket, LC by Lauren Conrad (similar here). Leather ballet flats, Land's End. Frame purse, Target. Tortoiseshell Wayfarers, Ray-Ban.

     I don't consider my life to be one of frivolity on many levels. I work hard in school, eat very simply (often too simply), only watch television once a week, and stick to a pretty solid schedule. However, when I laid eyes upon this dress, hanging alone in Forever 21, my impractical senses were tingling with attraction. There were no excuses needed to buy it. I had come in looking for nude tights and I came out with a perspective shifting, sparkly frock. 
     I'll admit that I am a magpie. While that might not be the most prudent way to go about building a wardrobe, it certainly is a lot of fun. This dress made me feel like a million bucks all day. It's not for wallflowers. If you wear a dress that literally reflects the light as you walk, then you're going to receive some attention. However, it will mostly be positive, reinforcing the notion to wear whatever you please. 
     I'm typing this post quite quickly before going to run in our conference championship race this weekend, but that doesn't mean the message isn't important. If that dress makes you feel great, wear it. If that boy makes you smile, text him. If you feel like you need to say something, say it. And while all that glitters might not be gold, I certainly felt 24-karat while sparkling all day.
