Sequins, Sequins on a Gal....

It must be the season and the idea of holiday parties and dinners, SG is unusually drawn to sequins and anything sparkly. Doesn't this just glam up a look instantly? Although I like the idea of sparkles, I don't know if I want to wear sequins from head to toe. I do like sparkle details on clothing but will probably avoid sequin leggings. Unless a gal is stick skinny, she can potentially look horizontally challenged.from left to right:
-Adrianna Papell sequin dress $168--Cute but too much sparkle for SG
-Juicy Couture $298 (SG likes the black and sequin stripe!)
-Alexander McQueen leggings $2345--SG thinks this will make me look fat...
-bottom: Tracey Reese gold tulle sequin skirt $275 (I like and I can wear it next summer and spring as well!)

For those gals wanting only a little sparkle then shoes and bags are the perfect accessories to glam up a gal's look, just a slight touch of festivity.
1. Miu Miu sequin pumps $650
2. Car Shoes purple sequin flats $470
3. Miu Miu peep toe sequin heels $950 (Louis Vuitton offers similar heels in gold or silver for about $3000 each)
4. Christian Louboutin $925
6. Prada sequin heels $850
7. Prada sequin mule $590
8. Miu Miu open toe sequin flats $640 (SG's pick to wear with darker monotone outfits)

I have been seeing sequin shoes but I am not too sure about this particular trend. It's really cute on my niece but I have to try for myself to pass the final judgment. Perhaps sequin details instead of all over sequins.

(right) Prada degrede clutch in gold/bronze $1250 (also available in black and raspberry)
Rafe clutch $425
SG picks sequin bags over shoes and clothing. It'll jazz up an outfit with moderation. So savvy gals, are you ready to sequin-up for the holidays

  1. Oh SG I'm loving sequins too bad lately! I adore to wear them here and there to sparkle up party outfits. Those clutches are to die for! Have a wonderful weekend darling! xo

  2. Love sequins they can make any item bright and festive )

  3. all fabulous options! i did a post on sequins last week, but now i'm determined to find some more affordable options.

  4. These are all beautiful! I think it's all about moderation with sequins.

  5. Too many sequins leave me flat. I am just not a sequin lover.

  6. A great round up! I love them all, especially that tracy reese skirt. i can just see it with a slouchy, sheer white tank top to tone down the dressiness of it. and you're right, it's not just for winter!

  7. Given how poor I am, I am seriously considering sewing sequins on cheap shoes/bags myself. :-)

  8. I like sequins, but not too much.


  9. I love a little bit of sequins every now and then!!

  10. sequins are everywhere lately! i wore them this week, and everyone else is posting something with sequins! YAY!

  11. I like sequins but I don't think I will spend too much on sequin pieces. I will buy a piece or two for the holiday. Maybe a scarf??

  12. I must confess - I love sequin, especially on flat shoes:)

  13. Absolutely in love with the Tracey Reese skirt after seeing this!! Have also been dreaming of ways to incorporate those wonderful Miu Miu heels with an outfit...would love to own them, they're so fun!
    Great blog!

  14. sequins are great for the holidays!!! i bought silver sequin shoes last year!
