Bling & Sequin

Good morning savvy guys and gals out there. First I like to announce the winners of the Photo Giveaway: Aubrey of Made you Blush and Shop N Chomp. Congratulation ladies! I hope you will enjoy this very much. Secondly, this post is the 1000th post. I want to thank all the guys and gals out there for your support. I had so much fun making new friends and interacting with everyone.Apparently I was wrong, after seeing sequin bags and shoes from design houses such as Louis Vuitton and Chanel starting about 2 seasons ago, I thought this trend would just die a natural death. However, shiny sequin is hotter than ever. This trend is everywhere. (Both images above are Gucci via style.com)
After further examination, little sequin dresses or tops are really easy to wear. Most of the styles are simple yet sequin detail adds a touch of glamour and edgy.

-Donna Karan $2495
-Sonia by Sonia Rykiel $580
-See by Chloe $595(all 3 pieces via Saks.com)
I don't know if I will rock a LSD (Little Sequin Dress), but a top is definitely something I have liked this past season. Throw a sequin top together with a simple pair of jeans, pants or skirt, a gal instantly becomes glamorous and dressed up. I vote for this easy style.

Kate Spade $425 via Nordstrom
DVF $365 via Net-a-porter
Free People $68 via Nordstrom ---- This will be a great layering piece.
For sure, I am not a big sequin jacket fan but after seeing this jacket at H&M couple of weeks ago, I am so tempted to buy one to pair with jeans this season. Since the price is only about $40, I think it is a non-issue. What do you think?
I am not sure if I am adventurous enough to wear sequin legging, but this certainly is very interesting to me.

left to right:
-Sivvy sequin legging $228 via chickdowntown.com
-Thakoon sequin shorts via shopbop.com
-Black sequin legging via H & M --- If I am to buy sequin leggings, this will be my choice because it is only $20. I won't feel so bad if I only wear it once.
I rolled my eyes when I saw Chanel's sequin tote last season. I think this Prada will not get my vote as well. However, this Emporio Armani cap gets my vote. I would totally rock a sequin baseball cap. A gal gets a little bling, and a little glam edgy which is very stylish and savvy in my opinion.

-Prada Sequin tote $3695 via Saks --- I gotta have money to burn to buy this.
-EA baseball cap
If a gal is shy about wearing sequin, a little sequin for our savvy feet is very chic. This way, there is a little bing without going over the top, just enough to let a gal's whimsical nature out to play. I love to have a pair of sequin Converse this season in gold or silver.
-Converse with sequin detail $81.95
-Valentino sequin ballet flats $595 (both via Nordstrom)
Even though I am not a huge fan of sequin bag, but a small sequin clutch on the other hand is very savvy. It will add a dash of glam to any look day or night. (by Amy Chan $395 via intermixonline.com) What about you, are you going to rock sequin this season or you have been there and done that already?

  5. Love that sequin jacket from H&M!! I'd buy it. And happy 1000th post! That's awesome!

  6. i love an embellished tank, but i feel like most of the rest of these are a little too old-ladyish for me (you know, like gold lame...) and also, hand-beading takes prices into the stratosphere and out of my price range! the H&M leggings are alright, i suppose, if they're that inexpensive- but shiny legs means wider-looking legs, so they're for the skinny minnies, only, i would think! congrats on your 1000th post! wow!

    Love many of your choices- particularly the shorts, though I don't know if i can pull them off! I think a sequin tunic or accessory is all i can do!

  10. I love matte sequins, like an Antik Batik dress I have, but I'm also getting a lot of use out of my black sequin pants by L'Wren Scott. A little more wearable than leggings I think -- definitely see if you can find some pants!

  11. I agree with you...not on the sequin boat at all...however, that blue sequin clutch is amazing and I could so see myself rocking it!

  17. Actually I can't get enough of sequins...not just yet anyway! I have a silver sequin jacket from Topshop and I love wearing it with my jeans or over simple dresses! I just wish we have H & M here since that black sequin jacket looks so awesome and only for $40!! xxooxoxoxo

  19. Congrats on your 1,000 post! I'm a fan of the sequin trend.. in moderation. Love the H&M jacket (and the price), but I agree with you that a tote is a little overboard. Fabulous picks!

    xo, Becs

  20. My friend and I found the perfect black sequined blazer at Zara a few weeks ago, but none of us bought it. In the meantime I started appreciating this trend a little more. Wonder if the blazer is still there. :p

  21. i feel like sequins are usu pretty delicate, not something id want on my feet.

    i have a sequins top from 3 yrs ago. and i like it because it has a layer of chiffon over the sequins part, so it makes the sequins more discreet & subtle. i bought it the same season lanvin showed dresses that came bejeweled but with a layer of chiffon over the the embellishment. so i feel it was a nod to that collection, one of my favorite runway shows.

  24. SG, congrat on 1000 posts. I like sequin accessories not clothing.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Woo 1000 posts!! Congrats!

    I really like sequins, but you do have to be careful to pick ones that look just as good close up as from far away. I think the sequin leggings are abit much, even if they were cheap! The sequin jacket though could look pretty cool if worn with the right attitude and accessories.

  26. I love the sequin jacket from H&M. I have to get one. And I saw this shoes at Aldo online, similar to the converse which is on clearance. Thanks for sharing all your fabulous sequin finds.

  27. Wow, shiny things!

    I think I like sequins on dresses or shoes. Sequined pants are interesting but just seem like they would draw attention to *any* imperfections on a woman's lower half.

    I think that you could rock a sequined dress!

    "I thought this trend would just die a natural death." Hahaha...I was thinking the same thing too. I love sequins but don't know if I can rock it. Maybe get a cute beret or something small.

  32. It's a big NO NO for me Savvy. sequin bling bling are not perfect for a tropic gal here. because our skin color not match with the bling bling sequin.

  37. I'm not sure how I feel about the sequins. On the one hand I'm loving the shirts and dresses, but on the other I'm wondering where exactly I would wear them? The playground? Hmmm. Congrats on your 1000th! You've been busy!
