Everything That Glitters Isn't Gold - But It Should Be!

When I think of glitter, I think of puffy paint, art projects and neon-bright colors. I often avoid buying glittery outfits and super shimmery dresses are not my first choice in the mall. However, I have to admit that I have noticed a recent exception to my no glitter rule: gold! These dresses worn by the stars look great; not too much, not too little. I know bright colors aren't for everyone, but neutral and gold tones, anyone can wear.

Nicki Minaj doesn't always impress me. She usually looks like a blow-up doll dressed up for Halloween. But this time, she did it right. She looks amazing in this white, glitter mini and glitter-gold, peep toes.

Heidi Klum is the perfect example of why everything that glitters, should be gold. She looks like a Greek goddess... wow!

Okay, I'm convinced. Glitter has definitely been added to my shopping list.
