All that glitters is silver

Shipley & Halmos blazer
Cynthia Rowley sequin dress (similar)
BCBGmaxazria lace shorts (similar)
Zara lucite heel pumps
Balenciaga clutch

I'm totally not one to stick within my size if I like something and there's only one left.. so I ended up getting this sequined tee in a large, but it works tucked in as a shirt or worn as a little dress (with shorts under of course). It's my first sequined item of any sort since I'm not usually a big fan, but I figured it was okay because the casual v-neck and jersey back made it more wearable for day and can be dressed up for night. Since sequins are so loud, I toned the rest of the outfit down with black and a sharp blazer. I wore this to a gf's birthday party, but I'll post a daytime sequins look in the future.

  8. I've always seen sizes as a general guideline, not necessarily something to adhere to consistently. Are those shoes comfortable? I tried them on and they seemed stiff.

  15. It's really hard to find sequins that are done right (aka right spacing and size in proportion to the garment). I'm glad you found one that works for you!
