Dressed Up Sequins

When one thinks of sequins, one usually thinks of something fancy.
My first two sequin skirt outfits were not really fancy in my mind.
Today~we are going fancy!
What is more fancy than sequins, velvet and a giant "diamond" necklace?
I challenge you to tell me!
I wish you could see the necklace better.
 I will try and take a better shot next time I wear it. 
 I have seen these babies in all the magazines and they go for $100 or more. 
 I got mine at TJMaxx fro $29.
This shirt has been a holiday staple for a number of years.
  Funny how it is probably even more on trend now than when I first bought it because of the polka dots.
  The shoes I am wearing are some of my favorite and pretty darn comfortable for high heels I might add. 
 Unbelievably, I got them at Payless last year.
Just goes to show you that you can dress like a million bucks without spending a million bucks

Do tend to wear the same items of clothing holiday after holiday 
or
 do you always buy something new?

Oh yes, definitely fancy, Brett! You look ready for an upmarket Christmas event, very classy.
There is quite a tradition here in the UK of having a new outfit for Christmas day, though it's not something I have ever done. I have more than enough frocks without buying more for Christmas! xxxx

This is probably my favorite look so far using that metallic skirt. I really love that top.

Not only is your shirt on trend with the polka dots, but the color too. I love this look.

We don't really get super dressed up for the holidays, so I usually just wear something I already have.

My favorite so far! So pretty!
I usually try to recycle holiday clothes...I'd rather spend that money for a pair of new shoes!

Great cheery look and I really don't think it gets any fancier than this! I like to treat myself to a new look for the holidays.

I love how you have been styling your sequins lately! Many of my favorite pieces of clothing are ones I've had for years and I hope they're around for many more. Also adore your bold lip color.

Sara said...

T.J. Maxx for the win jewelry wise–lately I can't go in there without finding several pieces I'd love to have. And how can you go wrong with polka dots? I love how festive you look.

So cute - and so on trend with polka dots and burgundy! The sequins go great with that color!

Tonight I wore a top so glittery that I was raining glitz and glam (literally, the glitter was everywhere!) I really love the colours you've paired with this outfit and how your shoes and panythouse match perfectly making your legs look even longer and leaner than usual!

A great post, a very elegant and beautiful look. You are wonderful with this set. The shirt and skirt are gorgeous and the combination with stockings and shoes make a gorgeous outfit. The necklace is beautiful. Also highlight your hairstyle and your makeup, spectacular, you're gorgeous. An excellent proposal, congratulations.

My goodness, I love that skirt! I think it would be perfect to wear year-round, since sequins have become such a big trend now. I have been on the hunt for a sequined piece to add to my closet forever. Finally found a cute dress the other day. I was thrilled!
