{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.

Such a great post! That first jacket is to die for and I love that you have some vintage mixed in. Plus that last dress is gorgeous.

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.

j'adore sequins, especially during the day. there's an unexpected glamour in using it when people expect it the least. =)

Miss Ookpik [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

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!

Anonymous [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

wow... - those shoes ROCK. Love the items in pic 4 and 5, too.

That headband is just amazing. I love how special sequins can make an outfit look.

Ms Unreliable [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

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

MJ – not surprising at all, and couldn’t agree more :)
