Who says you can't wear silver sequins and cowboy boots at the same time?

Like a rhinestone cowboy:

Sparkle week resumes!
Sequin shrug - $2 at crazy outlet store
T-shirt - Bitten by SJP
Skirt - thrifted Ann Taylor LOFT
Boots - thrifted

Oh goodness! So excited for the new season of Project Runway! In only a few short hours I'll be basking in the bitchy orange glow of Michael Kors and picking teams for Fantasy Project Runway with a few of my favorite boys... ahhh.

Oh! Oh! So, like months ago, I was out with the boy and mentioned something about wanting a small chandelier to go at the top of my stairs, instead of the boring little glass ball fixture that was there. I didn't really think much of it but just have been keeping an eye out for one. Last night, the boy gave me my belated Christmas gift which I have been waiting for him to "finish". What was it? A chandelier!!! He found an old one (the guy at the shop thought it was from the '40s based on the electrical work), and rewired the whole thing, and bought a bunch of glass crystals for it and has been fixing it up for me! HOORAY! I'll post a photo once we're done with it - he wanted to show it to me now to see if I want more jangly crystals and the answer, duh, is YES! I'm beyond excited! I love that he's handy and remembered that I wanted one and took the bus ALL OVER TOWN to find the perfect one and has been hanging out in lamp repair shops!

What could be better than that sequin shrug? Nothing, I say!

Dolly Parton was all about the sequins and boots. I must admit I prefer your tame version.

And can I add that you have the best boyfriend EVER! A guy who remembers something like that, and then goes through such effort to buy & refurbish is hands down the best! Lucky girl you, I simply can not wait to see it!!!
