Lookbook: Seeing Red, Sparkles & Sequins

Is it lookbook time already?

I tried to take photos of this look for such a long time. Dealing with DST and family/friends coming in town for the holidays put this shoot on the back burner. But I was able get these taken before we went out to dinner with the fam. Now, here it is and I'm so excited. Like--Jessie Spano doped up on caffeine pills--excited!
So the "necklace" is really the belt that came with this dress. I thought it made a really awesome necklace and that the green thrifted belt worked perfectly here. I think the detail on the thrifted belt is so brilliant, don't you? This look got jazzed up with my love of sequins and sparkles. First, with this sequin blazer that you've probably seen on the Muse before in an inspiring style post or whatnot. Also, the sparkle tights should be familiar to you as well since I'm clearly obsessed with them. And let's not forget one of my fave projects ever: these DIY booties that sparkle and shine.
After putting this post together I realized 3 things: I totally forgot to showcase the detail on the back of this dress. It's pretty cool and you're missing out, so my apologies. Also, my dimple is pretty prominent in these pics. The crater in my cheek must be getting bigger. And I think I've officially mastered the art of head tilting in outfit photos, wouldn't you agree?
Yes, that's a Transformers ring. I love it--don't you?

Cheryl, that red dress is super cute girl! TWO thumbs UP from me. How fabulous is the belt as a necklace!!!! I learn something new everyday. It looks really good. I wish I did have dimples! Be proud of yours. I've got a favorite pose too, even though y'all never see it. Because I never take pics. But when you have a great angle, you must work it. Lookin good Cheryl! :D
