Statement Lighting

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

The amazing thing about ceiling fixtures is that it can be such a statement piece in your home, subtle or striking, it really makes a difference. This is an item I'm willing to splurge on, mainly because it's one of the first things I notice in a home and it really finishes a room. 
Lighting is essential; whether centered above your bed, the focal point of your dining room, or a living room piece; ceiling fixtures can make a simple room luxurious and complete.

Here are some ceiling fixtures that will be a focal point and conversation piece in any room:

I've been wanting to wear this vest for a while now and every time I tried it on, it just didn't look right. I found this cute flannel at the thrift store for only $2 and knew it would be perfect! The vest is so sparkly and fancy that I decided to dress it down a bit with a casual outfit. I added my Joe's Moto jeans, stacked some bracelets, and painted my nails with neons and sparkles :)

Sweater: H&M 
Sequin Top: Express
Denim: Platos
Cuff: Target
Daniblack Boots: TjMaxx ($39!)

I found these boots at TjMaxx yesterday and they were such a good deal I couldn't pass it up. I looked online and the boots are currently over $130 dollars, but I snagged them for only $39 :) 
I've been wanting a pair of over the knee boots and fell in love with the thick suede and detailing on these.  I added some cozy layers for a long day of lectures and sequins to dress it up a bit.

Thanks for reading and don't forget to enter my giveaway!
