Sequin and Sparkle
A trend i'm loving right now is sequins! I used to think this style was only for outdated eighties clothing and pageant dresses but new styles are incorporating sequins with a much more stylish, modern twist. Right now sequins are showing up on everything from bathing suits to shoes to entire dresses. Don't want to drop near $500 on such an ephemeral trend? check out local thrift stores for leftover sequined dresses from the eighties. My local shop has tons; all it takes is a bit of reconstruction (shortening of the hem perhaps removing a gaudy embelishment) and voila! This trend is not for the conservative.. but it's perfect for a night out on the town and you'll be sure to catch everyone's attention.
