The 2012 Olympics are about to kick-off in style, with all eyes on the athletes (and the fab city of London!) I don’t know about you, womanistas, but there is some serious olympic-fever in my house! I am choosing to channel it into glitzy, luxurious party-wear just for you – inspired by the coveted Olympic medals. Gold. Silver. Bronze. Check out these drool-worth metallic pieces and amp up your look for your next night out!
This uber-glam cocktail dress is perfect for a night out when you want to get noticed. The sequins add shimmer and shine, and the knee-length hem is flattering for all figures. Let the dress stand out, and pair it with a nude heel and simple accessories for a chic party look. It’s available at Neiman Marcus for $495.
Something about gold sequins just screams “party” and “champagne” to me, which pretty much guarantees that you’re going to have a good time. If you want to rock the gold sparkle with a more budget-friendly cocktail dress, check out this dress from TFNC available at ASOS. It’s gorgeous, sparkly AND on sale for $27. You’re welcome.
This edgy, fashion-forward clutch is handcrafted from gunmetal Italian leather and is so fierce. The shape, sheen, and texture will add dimension to any ensemble. It’s sultry, seductive and the perfect accent to your evening out! It’s available from the ita collection online boutique for $975.
For a glitzy hand-held accessory that won’t break the bank, check out this Whiting & Davis crystal-striped clutch. It’s blingy and bold and party ready. It’s available at Nordstrom for $165.
These Christian Louboutin crystal pumps are an absolute spectacle. I unabashedly lust after them! The sky-high heel will add sparkle and swagger to your evening out. The warm bronze color is surprisingly neutral, pairing perfectly with whatever texture or color befits your party attire. They are also budget-busting, coming in at a whopping $6,395. So other than Beyonce, Victoria Beckham, or the wife of an oil tycoon, I’m not sure who can actually rock them…but a womanista can dream, right?
These bronze foiled suede heels from Kelsi Dagger pack a metallic-punch for a fraction of the price. Pair these with skinnies or an LBD and a bright cobalt clutch for a youthful, bold party look.
Enjoy the Olympics, womanistas! And rock these medal-inspired party looks like you actually stood on that podium!
