Aussie Curves - Sequins

Pink tips 3

When I read this weeks challenge, I honestly thought "I don't have any sequins..." but then I took a look through my Flickr account and realised I was a big fat liar. I have more than enough sequins for one post!

Above I'm wearing my most favourite scarf, a combination of gray, silver thread and sequins (purchased at Forever New). Its perfect for a night out or just dressing up a plain black outfit. It really injects some interest into an otherwise boring outfit.

So,e of my favourite pieces at the Target Bellecurve launch

This next outfit is something I tried on at the Bellecurve launch late last year - the sequinned skirt & sequinned shoulder blouse - and a triple hit with my Steve Madden Bittter heels. Seriously, these are still my most beloved heels regardless of the fact that they murder my feet.

I own both the skirt and blouse now, however I really haven't had many occasions to wear them. My workplace isn't dressy enough that a sequin skirt would blend in and a see through blouse is really only appropriate at work free and family free events... so I do find myself in a bit of a pickle with those items!

Sequin flats from Kmart

Finally, my most favourite pair of flats (which, alas, are on their way out) are these blue sequinned toe shoes from Kmart. I think I bought them for $15 and I always get complimented on them. It will be a sad day when they finally give up! Hopefully Kmart haven't discontinued the style and I cans till buy a replacement... but I think my chances might be slim!

What sequin products would I love to buy? I definitely want a Jessica Rabbit dress - a sexy, skin tight, fully sequined gown would make me faint! I could also do with a sequinned cocktail dress - because lets face it, who wouldn't want to be their own personal disco ball??!

No Sequins indeed! I stalked through your entire blog a little while ago & I still pine over those Steve Madden shoes!!

I really like that scarf you have. If I had that, that's what I would have worn for sequins week. So casual and cool.

Oh man! I'd love to see you in a Jessica Rabbit dress, that would be amazing, I've always loved her!
Those kmart shoes are super cute, I can understand why you'd get heaps of compliments on them.

A friend of mine wore the most AHHMMAAA- ZING sequinned and beaded dress for her pre wedding celebration (She is Lebanese). It mage me wish I was Lebanese so I could have had a reason to wear a dress that extravagant!!!

You look great! LOVE that skirt on you, it fits beautifully.

Murphy - I know right! It's like my brain is trying to convince me to buy things by strategically forgetting what's currently in my wardrobe!!

Sunny said...

SistersCloset - I see so many women in stunning sequin dresses and wish I owned them all! The only downside is I would have nowhere to wear them haha
