Gold glamour.

Gold gifted Disco Pony "The Natalie" Dress, White gifted Style Bonbon spotted feather cuff, Tan ASOS Ames suede ankle boots, Gold Forever 21 ring, Lips: MAC Nightmoth lipliner, YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in exquisite plum.


I was so excited when I was contacted by the loovely Zoey from Make Shift Model, who not only is an amazing fashion blogger but also the designer of her beautiful collection called Disco Pony -- rightfully so, I caannot wait to go out dancing in this gorgeous glitter glam dress for my 21st birthday this year.
I couldn't wait to show you all this dress..it seriously feels like I was dipped in pure gold.  The sequin fabric is so unique and like any other I've seen, and I can really tell how much love was put into making this dress..it's stunning.  Not to mention, I admire the intricate design itself -- modesty in the front and a sweet surprise cutout in the back.

I decided to style the dress more casually but in an interesting way.  I wanted to showcase it, so decided to use minimal accessories that complement the dress rather than outshining it.  I wore another beautifully handcrafted piece sent by the lovely Yamilla, a white spotted feather cuff. I love tying dresses at the waist, so just tied a simple black ribbon I had on hand.  Then just one simple gold ring, soft tan suede ankle boots, messy fishtail braid, and some very dark burgundy plum lips.
Simplicity was key when styling this particular dress.  Definitely check out the rest of Zoey's amazing line, Disco Pony!  She has so many beautiful pieces, one I'm coveting at the moment is the "Silver Surfer" blazer.

Next post will be the beauty post I've been talking about for a while :), cant wait to share with you!  Keep inspiring beautifuls with your amazing blogs! and I hope you lovelies are having a great start of your week!  Happy Tuesday! :)
♥, Kathleen.
