The Christmas Shimmer
December is my favorite month of the year! I love the lights, the vibe and most of all, Christmas!!! Yay!! So here is a post on what I would wear for a christmas party.
I am wearing a shimmery midi skirt from Top Shop. Metallic skirts came into vogue early this summer and they are here to stay. They are suitable for all body types, also people like me with exaggerated hour glass. You can wear it during the day with a simple tee or during the night with a darker hue or a velvet crop top which is also super trendy right now. Here, I have paired it up with a white top and since my plan is not to dress down for the party, I am wearing a grey sequinned cape from Zara.
I have also incorporated the shimmer trend in my accessories. Like the maroon choker from Zara paired along with a studded thinner choker chain below it. The outfit is more inclined towards grey color scale so the whole idea about wearing cobalt blue stilettos and a shimmery red choker didn't sound so bad. Also, I wore this grey shimmer socks along with my Manolo Blahnik's Blue Hangisi Studded Satin Pumps (Yes, they are the ones from Sex and the City something blue!). I have been preserving these shoes forever and almost forgot I had them. The metallic socks go perfectly well with any kind of shoes. I found something similar on koovs.
I did a dramatic wing with a black eyeliner on the upper lif. As for the lower lid, I have mixed two colors. I lined the outer corner with metallic green liner by MAC(Shade : Undercurrent) and used a golden glitter shadow to the line the inner corners. Since I like mixing greens with earthy colors, I used a muddy shade of liquid lipstick from Anastasia Beverly Hills (Shade : Ashton) on my lips. I completed the look with a lot of golden highlighter (see my last post for details on how to apply a highlighter ) .
