It's all about Texture and Pattern

Last night son2, husband and I worked at
Operation Christmas Child.  You know the people that collect the shoe boxes during Christmas. 
We have a distribution center here in Charlotte where all of the boxes are processed to go out.  This is my 3rd year to work on this project.  It is always have a lot of fun and interesting to see what comes through for processing.

Knowing that I would be doing this last night, I needed to dress appropriately for manual labor. 
Could I work sequins into this mode of dress???

  I knew I would probably be cold in the processing center so I threw my faithful jean jacket on.

See how versatile sequins can be!
How many patterns can you count in this outfit?
The tee underneath is a waffle weave, so there are many different textures going on as well.
striped purple t-GAP
sequin t- J.Crew
jeans-Old Navy

jean jacket-Levi

My sequin wardrobe is lacking. I agree--it can be done! Maybe I got scared after the sequins of the 80's--don't want to do that again~and this look is nothing like that so kudos!

We have participated with Operation Christmas Child for years! My children loved shopping for the contents of the shoe boxes. You were probably the best dressed worker there...you look so cute in this. A co-worker wore a B & W sweater with just a few sequins yesterday and her leather jacket...it looked great and appropriate for work!

My one sequin item is currently in the grandkids' dress up suitcase. You look like you were warm for this undertaking.
