sequins

Personally I think sequins should be worn all year round, not just for holidays and special occasions !

when in Rome

Since it is the holidays I thought this sequined jacket was quite fitting during my Sunday outing, a few people thought it was a bit much but hey, when in Rome! I found  this little # in a vintage store, as soon as I saw it I fell in love. I can wear this baby year round, its not just limited to holiday/party season. I could see myself wearing this with some nice light denim shorts or a cute little slip dress, or even layered with a hoodie and jeans for some casual vibes, the possibilities are endless! I'm not going to lie, it is a bit high maintenance ... If I move to fast I get stuck on things .. lol but I think its worth it!

I'm not sure if any one else noticed but sequins are on steroids this year... they're always popular but this year I think the sequin trend has reached new limits, I think its great! I don't really like to buy clothing that I wont wear again or that I can only wear for one season, I think its wasteful. If I'm going to spend my hard earned money on something, I want to be able to get my use out of it and you should too! Everyone does have a different definition of cost vs worth, for example some people might think my sequined jacket is a one outfit item, that its not practical but I see something different. We all value in different things, which so inspiring, why be the same when we can be different!

So if you've decided to have a go at the sequined fun that's going on this holiday season, pick up an item that you wouldn't mind wearing more then once lol. You could start with a skirt or a jacket or if your feeling ballsy do the full on get-up like a jumpsuit or a dress.  Garunteed youll be the toast of the party !
