Sequin show

I was rummaging through the abyss of Marshalls when I came across this sequin skirt in the middle of the sweaters. It was obviously meant to be. I like that the sequins appear to be matte, and not too shiny or cheap. At $24.95, this skirt is much more affordable than J.Crew’s sequin skirt, featured here. I confess that I will always love J.Crew’s skirt more. Attempting not to make this a Siegfried & Roy ensemble, I paired it with more subdued colors. It was the perfect little touch of sparkle for my friend’s house warming party this weekend.

I have noticed an influx of sequins, and it’s not because I’m a figure skater who loves attention. I think we can attribute the increase in sequins to the resurrection of 70s glam. I’m not sure why runways were so full of the 70s recently. If TV shows and movie stars are any indication, the only person I can think of who is reviving Studio 54-like excess is Lindsay Lohan. Whatever it is, I am loving some of these silver and gold sequin pieces. I could see a gold sequin clutch going well with outfits this winter and one of the sequin sweaters livening up a pair of skinnies.
