Casual glitz

FASHIONKim & Chloe

Katy Perry may want to shake the glitter off, but we say, "Bring it on!" ? Our favorite way to get casually glam with glitz - without breaking the piggy bank - is with a glitter or sequined accessory. The easiest accessories to add some glitz to are your nails. Three sparkly options are: *apply your favorite nail polish, and paint just the tips with some glitter polish,

*apply a sparkly polish to your whole nail,

*or add sheer glitter polish over your favorite color.

Need a little more sparkle than just on your nails? ? Try a glitter or sequin headband. Or a glitter belt. And if you want to wear sparkly shoes, but don’t want to look like Dorothy clicking her heels, we love the glitter and sequined Toms. Luna Boutique on Bardstown has the largest collection of Toms in the city. One of the easiest casual glitter pieces has to be the Madewell T-shirt. Definitely glitzy, definitely casual. ? But if you want to keep the glitz subtle, we have just the right amount of sparkle for you: a gorgeous glitter bangle bracelet. ? Big or small, bring it on and bling it on!
