When In Doubt, Wear Sequins

I could not, for the life of me, manage to get dressed last night before going out. Usually I don't require much time to get gussied up for the evening, and when I have a plan to meet someone, I'm out the door on time. Even after delaying dinner with my sister, I just could not find an outfit that satisfied me. I felt like a cartoon character as I scurried around my room, the mountain of rejected garments growing larger and larger on my bed. Funny that in that last-minute crunch, I did not fall back on a trusty favorite or throw on something simple and understated. No, I wore a sequin vest. Makes a lot of sense.

I really like the combination you came up with! I often suffer from the same dissatisfaction when trying to get dressed. (I have a really poor collection of fall back items.)

I've been following your blog for a short while, but I really like your style in general--very inspiring!

I totally agree with 'when in doubt, wear sequins'. Especially when thrifting has revealed such a goldmine of sparkle lately. I love this!
