Blogmas Day 5: Winter Formal

I was browsing youtube for different music than I usually listen to and I found Alex Goot's Lightning and absolutely fell in love with the song. I can't even pretend to know how many times I've clicked the replay button, it's only been two hours and now I know all the words....

And I'm still not tired of it.

While I was listening to the song (on repeat) I was browsing online for dresses and the next thing I knew I had picked out a whole formal outfit that fit with the song. It's just so gorgeous, I really wish I had somewhere to wear an outfit like this.

Lightning



Isn't is just stunning? The dress is the Starlight Hearted Dress from Modcloth, which is my absolute favorite place to "window" shop for dresses. I've never actually bought anything from there, but I really really want to. I adore the gold sparkle on the grey background, it just looks so ethereal. The clutch is the Armitage Avenue Sparkle Clutch from Loris, since the sparkles are black it's a more understated sparkle. The same can be said of the shoes which are the Leandre Pumps from Kate Spade. Though they're gunmetal sparkles and leather instead of black glitter.  And the finishing touch are these Lightning Bolt Earrings from Dogeared. I thought that these were delicate enough not to compete with the dress or the shoes, and since the name of the song is Lightning I just had to, it was just too perfect if a bit kitschy.

I think this outfit would be absolutely stunning for a winter formal event, with your hair curled and swept to the side, and a grey smoky eye with a pink lip. You'd definitely be the most stunning girl in the room. Do you have any formal events coming up? And more importantly, have you ever fell in love with a song so much you never wanted to stop listening to it?
