Sometimes I have to hunt for weeks to find items on my wish list, and sometimes they just fall right into my shopping cart. Such was the case with these pretty rings and plated belt. Rings have always been my favorite form of jewelry, and I couldn’t wait to try the multi-finger trend. So when I saw this ASOS set for a tiny fraction of the price of the original Balenciaga babies, I had to order them.
As for the belt, I had been wanting a metal-plated option ever since I saw this one around Jennifer Lawrence’s teensy-tiny waist at the Golden Globes this year. Since I don’t count Raf Simons among my close personal friends and therefore don’t exactly have access to the Dior closet, I was thrilled to find the below option at my local Forever 21. It’s not currently available online, but here‘s an exact duplicate.
Put it all together and you get an outfit that fully satisfies my tendency to wear all black and gold all the time.
Prada Glitter Smoking Slippers // Forever 21 Studded Glitter Loafers
For the past couple of years, I’ve been strictly a golden girl. But the metallic tides appear to be turning toward silver, so I’m hopping on the sterling wagon with some sparkly flats.
Who doesn’t love a good smoking slipper? They’re comfortable but a little more interesting than your average ballet flat. Add some glitter and I’m all over these pretty Pradas. Luckily they were on sale…for $343.
After crying sad, sad tears of sartorial woe, I did what any self-respecting shopaholic would do: I took to the streets. Market Street to be more specific. Where at my local Forever 21 I found these lovely Prada pretenders. Smoking slipper silhouette: check! Silver sparkles: check! Studs? Even better! And at $35, the price is right.
These twinkle toes add the perfect pop of glamour to those days when you want to be comfortable but still look chic (read: Mondays). I styled them with a chambray and denim duo topped off with a cheery daisy necklace also from Forever 21.
