Dec 20th - Outfit #20 - We Demand More Sequins!

Ah, finally! My long weekend is here! 

Thank you all for your well-wishes - I'm feeling a lot better (see? good vibes DO work!), so it must have just been a 24-hour bug. Go figure.

For my last day before the weekend, I went all-out with sequins!
Flash! Ahhh!
I layered my sleeveless grey cowl-necked sweater (last seen here with the chair skirt) under my purple cardi (last worn here, 3rd outfit, on the weekend with contrasting turquoise), and pinned the side with my sparkly brooch.

The sequin skirt demands to be worn again and again (really, it's very loud). I last wore it here with a more subdued combo of grey and navy.
I liked it with the black boots, which I last wore here, also on the weekend, and they were definitely needed for all the running around and craziness today. I worked an extra 40 minutes just to get everything done so I could take my one day off tomorrow. 

Cardigan (Kenar, consignment), sweater (August Silk, consignment), skirt (Beaded Drama, vintage 80s, thrifted), boots (Aldo), brooch (The Bay, 90s), bracelet (gift from Mom), ring (Wendy Brandes).

Hope your days are merry and bright! And if not your days...then at least your clothes.

  3. Oh My! The sparkle just keeps getting better in here! You are the Christmas Sparkle Queen. I especially love it in purple. Very unique!

    And, I meant I wouldn't wear my striped socks with that dress in public, not the leather jackets. I love the socks but I prefer that striped pair underneath my pants. ;)

  4. I do love this skirt! I've always thought of sequins as strictly special occasion eveningwear only, but this is beautiful as daywear :-)

    Have a wonderful Christmas Sheila :-)

  14. I love how the galaxies of your gorgeous skirt trail like comets in the details across your boot toes, your cardigan buttons, and starburst pin. Amazing!
