Sequins & Balloons

Balloons and Sequins

Given the name of my blog, I’m sure it’s of no surprise to you that I gravitate toward sequins. Shoes, tops, skirts, dresses – I have to have them. This top is so old it can be considered vintage, because I borrowed it from my mom’s closet circa 1998 and still am finding excuses not to return it (sorry Mom). But I love how it fits just right – not baring too much decolletΓ©, and the color is heavenly.

And my Obakki skirt is just so flowy and fun that I couldn’t resist pulling it out to wear it again.

  • Is that skirt high waist? I've never seen you wear it that way.
    love the shoes! You didn't say where they're from though.

  • oops! it's up now. they're colin stuart, and I believe i ordered them from Victoria's Secret back in the day (when booties weren't in style–and thus never had much gall to wear them back then)
    the skirt isn't high-waist, just wore it that way in previous post – i'm just short so i hiked it up for that one πŸ™‚
