No sequin love...
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 :)
