In Sequins

A glimpse at the couture and pre-fall collections reveals that sequins are here to stay… and CC couldn’t be happier about it! CC firmly believes that sequins should not be reserved for “festive” occasions (read: holiday parties). Long live the sparkle!

Incredible post darling, I agree, sequins are an everyday thing. Too fab to keep for festivity.

Antik Batik do a wonderful sequin skirt as well as that jacket.

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Reminds me that I am yet to find the right sized sequined leggings! They're either too tight and therefore itchy or too big for me for some reason... I was looking for a black pair though, but wow, love those Siwy sequin jean legggings too!! Would love to try something like that on, saving the picture on my compy for future inspirations, thanks :)

Iva said...

That Antik Batik blazer is gorgeous and I can't get over how breathtaking the Chanel couture collection was. But that Vera Wang pre-fall dress is nasty. What was she thinking?
