{Sparkle and Shine}

There are three items that I would like to find while roaming the streets of New York this weekend: 1. leather {faux-leather} pants, 2. shoes/boots, and 3. sequin top and/or clutch. All of these items shouldn't be hard to find - I will just have to decide how much I want to spend on them. Some people have asked me "where would you wear sequin other than at a Christmas party or New Year's Eve?" And my answer to that is EVERYWHERE - the grocery store, out for a day of shopping, out to dinner... For day time limit sequins to a top, like a tank or embellished cardigan or sweater. Off set the texture of sequins with jeans or a chambray shirt or cotton to balance out an outfit. Accessorize minimally to avoid an outfit looking too busy. Sequins at work, you say? Yes, you can totally wear sequins at the office - it’s all in how you wear them. Choose a smaller size sequin in a neutral color to minimize their flashy reflective appearance. Some come in a matte plastic instead of ultra shiny and iridescent that still provides texture to an outfit minus the flash.
Be bold - be different - and if people stare...let them - consider it as you're being noticed! Shine on!

  1. Great post! Thanks for dumbing down how to wear what is considered more of a bold piece to us lay-people :)
