Hi Lovestars! Just thought I would chime in about the sparkly runners- I am a big fan! I was at a big family celebration this summer, chatting with my 20 year old niece who was marvelling at all the sparkly and bejewelled runners of all the 13 year old attendees - rocking on the dance floor with their fancy frocks and runners- commenting on the smarts of the "younger generation"who, unlike her cohort when they were 13, were wearing ridiculous heels and now suffering from knee issues! Had to laugh! Got home, and picked up my own pair and wore them all summer, very happily, with all my summer dresses!
