Sparkle Plenty

December 11th, 2012 | Posted in Beauty, Fashion by Meli

Smarter words have never been spoken. Am I right, ladies?
Although I live by the standard that every day is a good day to wear sparkles, I know this time of year is especially reserved for them. So here is a round up of all my favorite glittery, sequin-y, and sparkly goods (whether you want to splurge or save):

 

1 Chevron Sequin Mini Skirt; 2 Sequin Scatter Prom Dress; 3 Kate Spade Charm Heel; 4 Striped Sequin Scarf

5 Sequin Pencil Skirt; 6 Gina Sequin Maxi Skirt; 7 Infinity Crop; 8 Polka Dot Sequin Top

What shiny thing have you been laying your eyes on this holiday season?

{Giveaway}: $100 The Limited Gift Card

March 1st, 2012 | Posted in Giveaway, Local by Meli

Ready to spruce up your wardrobe for upcoming Spring? Thanks to the lovely people at The Limited, you can with a $100 gift card! Entering is easy: follow Melificent on Facebook (link here) & comment to this post with what you have been eagerly awaiting to add to your wardrobe. For me, it’s definitely more bangles and general wrist candy. This picture inspired the lust! The winner will be announced next Thursday, 3/8!

After visiting The Limited last week, I was impressed with the versatility of their collections. Some of my favorites were, of course, their beautiful pop pieces (like the skirt I featured earlier this week), as well as their travel suits that can be thrown into the washer and dryer (heaven sent). Finally, I really adored their reboot of the Outback Red collection (last available in the 80′s), which focuses on those of us bitten by the wanderlust bug. It recently features trends inspired by travel to Havana, Cuba, which I love!

In other words, I don’t think any of you will have a very difficult time spending this great gift card. ;)

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.

Enjoy pictures from my visit to The Limited grand opening under the cut!

January 5th, 2010 | Posted in Fashion by Meli

dresslikeacupcakeIf you are my friend on Facebook, you’ll remember that I posted a picture of this adorable print and stated that it was going to be one of my motto’s for 2010 and although silly, it is no lie that a girl’s attitude will sky rocket if she thinks she looks good. And for me, looking good means bright colors, ruffles and glitter. That’s just the way it is. And here are some sweet and affordable pieces that would definitely fit my new motto:
