{a new week + sequins}


Have always liked the way sequins glimmer when they catch the light and the sense of playful luxe they evoke . . .

Beautiful, show-stopping pieces bring Fall’s casual looks to a rich, sophisticated level by adding pure glamour to layered knits and turning laid-back looks into timeless, cosmopolitan style.

  • It’s amazing how subtle some sequins can be, they can add so much to an outfit, even just the sequined head scarf.

  • That headband is just amazing. I love how special sequins can make an outfit look.

    I really like how you found some photos that “casualized” sequins. You’ve shown a lot of ways I never would have considered wearing sequins. Thanks!

  • j’adore sequins, especially during the day. there’s an unexpected glamour in using it when people expect it the least. =)

  • LOVE sequins, wonderful post you made out of it too!!!

  • I had been hoping sequins would reappear!

  • LOVE those shoes!!

  • sequins are the most glorious wonderful embellishment in the world. i even think they might be better than feathers, which is another favourite of mine. they are just so happy, and pretty and lovely.
    and ‘playful luxe’ is a great phrase. sums up sequins perfectly.

    your pictures are great, as always, and you’re right, a little bit of sequins goes a long way!


  • Just can’t get enough of shoes right now so the photo of the shoes is my favorite. Just posted about new marc shoes and I can’t decide which to buy first..
