I See Sequins




I can't get enough of sequins lately. My mind keeps wandering to the beautiful blazers, skirts, t-shirts, and frocks designed by a couple of my favorite designers, Gryphon and Phillip Lim. Tonight I saw a woman wearing these adorable flats and it was love at first sight. Sequin ballet flats and pumps were popular last year at Miu Miu and Prada and are making a splash all over again. The sequin necklace above is a great Marni find from last week at Neiman's Last Call. I can't wait to wear this stand-out piece with fancy coats or even just a plain tee and skinny jeans. I'm thrilled to see sequins in a variety of colors-- silver, blue, grey, gold, black and white. There's much fun and experimenting that can be done with this great trend. Sophisticated sequins are expensive so watch out for a versatile investment piece that you can dress up or down and wear day and night. The one rule to follow is to buy a piece that you know you'll wear more than once. It's easy to be swayed by the sheer prettiness, but be confident that it'll become one of your favorite closet staples.

I agree about the ties in back-makes it! Especially gives it a new look-who knew bows & sequins. Love the necklace you picked. GT

One of my go-to styles for dressy events is a smart black suit with a sexy sequined shell underneath. Just that flash of sparkle with the conservative black...love it!
