style: glitz and glam

Posted By admin On October 12, 2010 @ 5:54 am In style | 12 Comments

I was a little bit of a sequin maniac last year — I probably tried on a hundred different dresses, tops, skirts, and tunics, before finally buying one that I have worn exactly, oh, um, once.  It is actually kind of tough to come up with occasions for which it’s appropriate to be decked out in neck-to-knee sequins.  (Go figure.)

So this year I’m going for sequins in less obtrusive patterns — more comfortable for me, more places to wear them to, and you still get a little bit of I’m-wearing-something-sparkly giddiness when you put them on.  To me, this shirt is perfect — not to mention that it’s super-soft cotton underneath, unlike many of the sequined items I’ve tried on.

The lovely folks at Kendra Scott [1] sent me these gorgeous earrings — close-up pics below — and I am totally in love.  They’re perfect for this wearabe-glam outfit, and for probably a hundred others — I’m so thrilled they’re mine!

One more thing that bears noting, as I think about this outfit.  I had this problem, while I was shopping around at Forever 21.  I kept finding this really cute stuff that I couldn’t wait to try on… and then realize that I was standing in the plus size section.  But how awesome is that?  I only mention it because I can’t find the shirt I got on their website — but this one [2] is the same style, in their plus-size line.  Pretty darn adorable.

Forever 21 top, Splendid leggings, gifted Kendra Scott [1] Freya earrings, Rachel Roy heels [3], H&M bangles, and the handcuffs necklace is from a store in Los Angeles whose name I don’t remember, although it looks a lot like this one [4].
