My friend, Sequins, is a self-proclaimed clothing mismatcher (is that even a word?).  She's also really good at keeping things so long that eventually they come back in style (aka "Vintage").  But rather than storing them in her closet, she actually wears them.  The other day she joked about how she used to (and still does) wear sequins on stage.  And I said to her, “You do realize sequins are back in, right?” She was super excited (yes, I said super. My daughter watches Ni-Hao Kai-lan, all right?)

I'm obsessed with sequins (the clothing, not my friend).  There's something about their shininess and symmetry.  They're fabulous.  I bought this SEQUIN DRESS for $15 at Macys when they were having a sale.  It's actually much more versatile than I thought.

I decided to do "3 Ways to Wear It" Thursday.  And I wanted to post all 3 outfits at one time so you can see them side by side.  That way, if one of them sucks worse than the others, hopefully you won't notice.  Or maybe I'll get lucky and you'll think all my outfits are just like sequins, shiny and symmetrical.

I love the different used of a single dress! That last picture is genius turning the dress into a lovely skirt and belted, gives it a totally different look!

If you're into sequin berets (i.e. matte black sequins ala that reality stylist Zoe-i-can't-remember-her-last-name),i saw one on sale in the Avon booklet@ the hair salon this week.

My favorite is #3. I like that you were able to put different looks together using the same core piece. It makes an investment out of a sequin item. Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. Maybe we can follow each other?
