Sequin Shebang

In Clothing on January, 15 2011

One of the most common questions that I hear on a Saturday night is “what am I going to wear?” Fear no more, because sequins have come to the rescue.  When I don’t know what to wear when going out, sequins are my best bet because they can either be dressed up or down depending on what my plans are.  Sequins make every outfit fun, and I love to dress up on a Saturday night.  Alice and Olivia’s “Sequin-embellished silk-blend top” is a perfect option for one of those nights when you just don’t know what to wear.

The Alice and Olivia “sequin-embellished silk-blend top” is cool-girl chic with its fabulous sparkly sequins.  You might feel uncomfortable being the “brightest star” in the room, but don’t worry because there is always a way to turn an outfit down while still making it super chic.  The top is silk with gold and black stripes –love the color combo- with sequin embellishment throughout.  Not only will you be able to fashion this adorable top in the cold, but you can also take it with you on your weekend getaways and use it for warm sun evening fun.

For an evening in a cold climate, make this shirt city street-chic with black leggings, a black boyfriend blazer, black patent-leather platform pumps, and a black patent-leather clutch.  Keep the jewelry simple with stud earrings and a cocktail ring.  For an evening in a warm climate, still wear black leggings, a black patent-leather clutch, and stud earrings and a black/gold cocktail ring, but instead of the platform pumps, wear black high-heel sandals.

The shirt was originally sold for $400, but it is now on sale for $160 on  If you are facing the “I don’t know what to wear” question tonight, and don’t have time to run out and purchase something, find one of your dressier tops in your closet and make it cool with leggings, the right shoes, and accessories.  There’s always a way to use what you have and still make a great outfit.  Not only do you have to shop the stores, but sometimes you have to shop your own closet too.
