Sparkling Sensations

This is kind of a continuation of the Liquid Metal post. It has been clear that sequins are so big for this year. Sequins are no longer just for night time! You can now show all of their might and glory during daytime hours! I don't know why this "trend" is just popping up now... Louis Vuitton, Dolce and Gabbana, Stella McCartney, and other designers have been showing sequined dresses for forever! One of my favorite ways to wear this trend is to pair a sequined skirt, dress, shirt, whatever... with something along the lines of tough and well...manly-like. Kind of Altuzarra-esque... Pairing things like parkas and military jackets with feminine things. It is seriously one of the best combinations in the world. Really, if you pair anything that contrasts, it looks awesome. In my first picture, Karen Blanchard from Where Did You Get That...paired her sequin skirt with a big sweater, and some tough ankle boots. It looks ah-maz-ing. But, you don't have to do that. You can just stay completely feminine with sequins...which also looks amazing. That green mid-length Dolce and Gabbana dress is killer. So what do we all, including myself, take from this?...basically..I am obsessed with shiny things.
