The Winter Holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, My Birthday) are my favorite time of year. Yes, my birthday is to be considered a holiday, as is your own. My favorite trend re-visited this Holiday season: silver sequins. Sequins were huge a little more than four years ago, and they have solidly made their return. Whether a holiday dress, a statement purse, or a comfy winter scarf to dress up your sweats- sequins are the perfect way to get in the spirit. Here are some of my favorite pieces...

I showed my sequin hat and scarf in a recent haul video (click to watch) and many at first did not think the pair would be able to look classy as opposed to juvenile- but I think they are the perfect addition to my favorite chill winter look (leather jacket, neutral sweater, jeggings, boots). It's glamorous, yet comfortable and practical (atleast, practical for the winter weather in Chicago). Besides that set and the coach wristlet, the other pieces I do not own and think would be perfect holiday additions to my wardrobe. I love the skirt by Haute Hippie, but, I will never pay $400 for a sequined mini skirt. ShopAkira.com has a silver sequin mini skirt at a much more affordable price-$40.00.
How to wear sequins?
Pick one piece- a dress, a vest, a skirt- and pair it with neutrals. My scarf and hat set meshes well with a black leather jacket and jeggings- any more sequins would look like overkill. A sequin dress looks great with either a leather jacket or black blazer, combined with opaque black tights. The sequins draw enough attention- you don't need sheer tights, cleavage, or any other outrageous statement items since there is already so much going on.
2 blog posts in one week? I told you I was back in action. This has become my new favorite hobby- it's like scrapbooking online. And nobody likes to scrapbook like myself.
