Concrete Catwalk // Glitter Stilettos

April 19, 2012

Wore this look to a fun dinner with some gals in my neighborhood, and it felt like just the right combo of feminine and edgy.  I finally found a replacement for my distressed boyfriend jeans (you can buy my pair right here!) and am surprisingly really happy with the ones you see above from Forever21.

The glittery heels really just make any outfit look glam, and adding those after a day of running around in flats instantly upped the Friday-night-out factor.  What’s your favorite way to day an outfit from day to night?  I always love reading your tips and ideas in the comments!

Top to Bottom:
Necklace – Given to me by my Dad (they were his Mom’s!)
Blouse – Vintage, thrifted
Jacket – H&M (similar – and only $75!)
Jeans – Forever21
Clutch – Express (similar)
Heels – Zara (similar)

Pin It!

    If you walked by me in NYC, I’d snatch your clutch. Clutch snatcher. That’s how much I love it. Your better hope I don’t return to NYC anytime soon! =)

    I love those jeans, I might have to go buy those jeans…lol! I’m pretty much the same way when transitioning from day to night, throwing on a pair of sassy heels usually does the trick or doing a bold lip in red or pink + statement jewelry (usually a cool cuff or necklace).

    I love the combination of prints, colors, textures, & most of all the glitter! Those shoes are killer… and that clutch is sure to spice up any outfit.

    I love this look. I like how distressed denim can now be worn out for an evening on the town by pairing with a pretty blouse and some sexy heels. It’s all in the shoes for going from day to night!

    Ah! Glitter is definitely the way to my heart. Love the two-tone heels <3

    Love your distressed jeans! My favorite and easiest way to go from day to night is adding an amazing statement earring with a red lip! Cute blog!
