Glitter...This Could Be Dangerous

This post may seem a little crazy since glitter isn't usually the preppiest (or classiest for that matter) of accoutremants, but hear me out...
I got a bunch of questions about these fabulous shoes from KS. The charm heel was the main focus of my polyvore set. Aren't these shoes to die for?? I have quite an ironic fondness of glitter. Although most view it as quite tacky, I love it. These shoes are just unbelievable, and KS does a great job of making them fun, classy, and perfect for a night out all in one shoe! The bow just makes it perfect in my book.


I've been lusting after the "Happy Birthday" color by Lippmann Collection (found at Nordy's) for quite a while. I have gold glitter nail polish (at Nordy's it's called nail color...) from CVS or some other drugstore that I like a lot for summer. I also have (dare I even admit it) some loose glitter that I've wore as eyeshadow for Halloween my sophomore year of high school. I was Barbie and the glitter was pink and very shiny. I also wore a pink shin-length evening gown. Needless to say I had glitter everywhere come November 1st.

I've also used edible glitter for cupcake decorations. White frosted cupcakes with white glitter looks so glamorous and fun. Edible glitter adds sheen and fun without looking childish or hokey like sprinkles can sometimes.

I do draw the line with glitter though. For instance, body glitter, is never acceptable, under any circumstances. It looks like those made-up cheerleaders on the ESPN shows or like you need to return to the 90's. Everyone remembers the Bath and Body Works roll on glitter, we all had them. Mine was like grape scented I think. Maybe the glitter was even purple too. Nonetheless, body glitter is in the past, where it belongs forever. Also where I draw the line: red glitter. Red glitter will always and forever be a part of the Wizard of Oz, will it not? One of the main parts of that movie are the Ruby Red (glitter) slippers. Everyone always thinks of those shoes when they think of the Wizard of Oz, I'm sure you did too!

Is anyone else out there a fan of glitter (in moderation...mind you)? You all know I certainly am!!

ohhh, the glitter from B&BW....I used to wear it every day as eye shadow and on my temples. I used to hate when it got in my eyes! Mine was watermelon scented :)

Love those Kate Spade shoes too! The bow really does pull it all together. :)

This was such a fun post. I am just like you.. I am obsessed with glitter. I loved those KS shoes when I was creating my polyvore as well! I was a cheerleader in HS and used that as my excuse to load on the glitter for Friday night football games. I have the glitter nail polish from nordies and I LOVE it. One coat is nice but I do 2 or 3 coats and that makes my nails all over glittery. The only pain is taking it off.. it doesn't come off as easily as regular nail polish does!

I keep wanting glitter shoes but I am so afraid all the glitter will rub off! Or that is will end up everywhere!
