No sequin love...

OK, I KNOW that sequins are totally "in" right now, especially for the holidays. I just want to say that I, myself, will not be participating in this awfully tricky trend. Sometimes, you just have to appreciate a trend for what it is, realize that it's not for you and then rationally decline that fashion invitation.

Did I fool you??

I'd like you to think that I was so reasonable about not jumping on the sequin wagon but alas, I have not been. With visions of looking ultra-cool by mixing flashy with something basic like a band t-shirt or beater tank, I tried on sequin mini-skirts, tank tops, dresses, shorts (yeah, I know), t-shirts...all in vain as I twisted and turned in the dressing room to somehow MAKE it look flattering.

But I am sorry dearies. Much like gold lurex or jumpsuits, bedazzled clothing will never look right on me. The effect is much less I-look-like-a-model-who-doesn't-care and much more I'm-a-lumpy-mermaid-on-a-night-out-on-the-town.

Kudos to those of you who can pull this off. I'll be the one on the other side of the bar looking envious. And slimmer than I would have otherwise :)
