{a new week + sequins}

Have always liked the way sequins glimmer when they catch the light and the sense of playful luxe they evoke . . .

Beautiful, show-stopping pieces bring Fall’s casual looks to a rich, sophisticated level by adding pure glamour to layered knits and turning laid-back looks into timeless, cosmopolitan style.

Just can't get enough of shoes right now so the photo of the shoes is my favorite. Just posted about new marc shoes and I can't decide which to buy first..

sequins are the most glorious wonderful embellishment in the world. i even think they might be better than feathers, which is another favourite of mine. they are just so happy, and pretty and lovely.
and 'playful luxe' is a great phrase. sums up sequins perfectly.

your pictures are great, as always, and you're right, a little bit of sequins goes a long way!

This might sound surprising, but nothing gives off a sexier femme feel than sequins. Sequins and diamonds.

I really like how you found some photos that "casualized" sequins. You've shown a lot of ways I never would have considered wearing sequins. Thanks!

It's amazing how subtle some sequins can be, they can add so much to an outfit, even just the sequined head scarf.
