Look of the Day: Olympic Sparkle

The London 2012 Olympics commences this Wednesday with numerous football matches but the opening ceremony will be on Friday, July 27th. Now by football I mean soccer for us blokes and blokettes.

We've been talking about dressing down a clothing item like an embellished shirt or sequin skirt and today we're showing you how we chose to dress down a fancy pair of shoes and clutch.  You must know that more days than not I end up wearing a wife beater!  Whether it's on a walk with the kids or to bed, it's my must have staple.  But I'm so in love with these fantastic shoes that I'd like to sleep in them too!  I last wore them to a friend's June wedding in Boston.  

Sunglasses: Old, Wife beater: Hanes, Jeans: Current/Elliott unrolled boyfriend jeans, Red Blazer: F21, Quilted Jean Zip Jacket: Alexander Wang via The Outnet, Shoes: Thakoon via The Outnet, Jewelry: Vintage Chanel Earrings, Amrita Singh Sunburst Ring via Gilt, Lotus Blossom Design ribbon necklace worn as a bracelet, bracelets including My Stuff Bag Foundation charity set, Union Jack Clutch: EBay brand unknown, Nail polish: Revlon's Snow Bunny
