A Lesson In Sequins

Sequins, sequins, and more sequins!  We've heard all about 80's revival this season, but it's much easier to see Rachel Zoe step out to an LA event in a sequin vest than it is to put together a sparkly Saturday night outfit for ourselves.  After reading this post, hopefully you'll agree that sequins do have a place somewhere other than the red carpet.

When I think about sequins, I think about vintage.  Sure, you can get a cute bejeweled piece at the department stores this season, but it's so much more fun to scour the electronic shelves (love you ebay!) and find a unique piece that no one else will have.  The following tops were found on ebay - obviously due to time sensitivity, they may have been snatched up by some lucky ebayer by the time you finish reading, but don't worry - a quick search for "vintage sequin tops" will give you hundreds of options to choose from!

Tip: Make sure to keep makeup and the rest of the outfit simple with these looks and let the sequins do the talking!

Wear this sequin jacket with a simple off white or gray tee (try this one from Forever 21 for under $5 and size up for a slouchy look) and your favorite jeans...

How cute is this one (with distressed denim on bottom) for a sweetly boho-inspired look...

This one is perfect for date night with dark blue or black skinny jeans and black patent round-toe pumps...

And finally, the one I scored a couple weeks ago (for just $17!) that made it's way into my normal weekend rotation :-)
