Life | All That Glitters

Psynopsis Topshop Sequin Dress Zara Pink Jeans Bally Sandals
The magpie in me cannot pass anything glittery without getting quite excited; so naturally I got all chirpy when I found this shiny dress in a topshop sale for a tenner. We went on a little forest expedition where I discovered that it rustles wonderfully when walking... It also loses a scale per step, which made me feel like Gretel following the shimmery path to find my way home.

It was, David, it was :)

Sequins in the forest, what a fantastically magical theme. You look gorgeous and the pictures are astounding. x

Hehe, I'm a magpie as well. I love sparkly things. This dress is amazing and the forest looks so beautiful.

Maddy said...

Then we're glitter sisters because I couldn't resist that dress if I passed it in the store! And the fact that it was on sale makes it all the more appealing :)

A Thrifty Mrs said...

Cool photos. Those trousers are lovely.

Oh, Sabine, gorgeous photography, beautiful beyond words.

Thank you for what you wrote: it's uncanny, I swear I was thinking about you while going through the many photos (I'll be posting more, even tho it's way off the fashion focus). Was thinking about how this is such a treat for me - the forest, etc - and how the countryside is your world.

Also, I've been immersed in images of shimmery shiny colours in forest, have uploaded but not yet posted about it. The lime green of the shimmery background - whoever took those shots is really good - and those brown flat sandals anchoring and balancing the bling - and the colour of those Zara trousers, it's like the perfect equation. Pink and that green are one of my favourite combinations. But especially - to use a pair of trousers as scarf/top: that's simply style genius.

Hope to see you after we're home. Now I've got some great posts to catch up on ; ) xox

Ha ha, THANK YOU, Jill! The pictures were taken by me... The struggle with the tripod on swampy ground adds to the adventure.

that last photo is so epic, fabulous outfit

The Foolish Aesthete said...

Fabulous self-portraits in the forest! (However did you manage the tripod not falling over?) It puts me in a wonderful state of mind as I set out nature tripping today!

Dancing Branflake said...

Okay, that's it... the next time I am in London I am taking a train to your house and I'm going all Little Women on you and I'm going to run through the forest like a fairy. These photos are amazing- and you do look like a graceful forest fairy.

You took those pictures yourself! They look magical. Love that top/dress. And yeah, I am sure it's losing the shimmer discs. Happens with all things, well almost all things, that shimmer and shine.

Mat said...

what is your tattoo of?

SabinePsynopsis said...

Mat - It's the Banksy leopard escaping the bar code cage. It lasted 2 days... Makes me wonder if I should get a permanent tattoo.

Oana Roxana said...

I didn't realize you're the one in pictures. You look so much like a teen. :)
That's a very nice place.
