I used to have an aversion to sequins. I loved the look of them but hated the scratchiness. Annoying with a capital A. So I didn’t wear them. In fact I even sold many the sequin item that was given to me or purchased on a whim and inevitably discarded. This changed a little when I first slipped on this sequin bolero. It’s shiny and sparkly and beautiful. Win. And it’s COMFORTABLE and not scratchy. Double win.

So sequins and I got back on talking terms.

Then this skirt showed up.

Holy heck.

This skirt might just be THE item that changes everything for me. I mean LOOK AT IT. Just look. It’s sparkly goodness in a pint size package. And I do mean pint sized. It’s probably the littlest skirt I own out of plenty of little skirts. Sequins cost money I suppose, what can you do? Haha. I’ve only worn it once since purchasing it. It sort of seems like the sort of skirt that needs an occasion, you know? A party, a night on the town, a special occasion.

    Bam! You know I love me some sequins. I kinda want to see the skirt with those pink pump too.

  • Girly edge? Yes please. I can totally see myself in an alexified version of this — loose black tee, THAT skirt, those shoes and a long pendant.

    • For sure. That’s what this outfit started out as. Haha. But then I knotted the tank and swapped the necklace. Great minds dude!

        girl, I went STRAIGHT to the website in the hopes I could get one! I really really love it, devastated that it wasn’t available.

        • Yeah, I picked it up from the outlet store. I think it’s on clear out. Maybe try the customer service number, they may be able to track one down…

  • SpiikerKat

    that skirt is fabulous & you look smoking hot!! I wish I’d picked up one of these!

    • Thaaaaanks Katie! It was such a great find. And a third of the original price. Such a win.

  • Fabulous skirt with an awesome pattern and colours! Love it! I’m with you when it comes to the scratchiness of sequins…. waaaaaaaah, cos i love shiny things ;D

    • Thanks Alison! It was a great find, the pattern is my favourite thing. It’s stupid right? How has someone not come up with an alternative? Gosh.

  • I’m totally with you on the scratchiness thing. I have to really REALLY love a sequinned piece to wear it. I love this outfit so much, wish I’d bought the skirt now!

    • Same, same! This one doesn’t scratch at all but you still have to be really careful to not grab it or pull it on stuff. Waaay too much hassle to do it too often for me. Lucky it’s pretty. Haha.

      Thank you! x

  • Do you get scratched at all by the sequins when you wear it? And if so WHERE? hAHAHAH 😉

    • Nope, this one is completely lined by a thick ponte type fabric, you wouldn’t even know there was sequins there if your butt didn’t stick to stuff. Haha.
