But it's true!
I love a sequin and when you are feeling lazy, dressed in denim shorts and a tee, all you have to do is add about of sartorial bling and you are sorted.
This was my dilemma this evening...casual drinks out in the local hotel bar but as much as I didn't want to change I didn't just want to schlepp there looking so understated. On came the sequins.
This jacket/wrap was from New Look in 2010 - so it's probably heading into "vintage" definition territory - but remains a fantastic buy.
I know lots of high streets shops bring this kind of item out every season and I urge you to buy one. They are so useful - add a bit of colour and interest - without making you feel like Shirley Bassey.
I thought I would add in a picture of my over-applied highlighter for a laugh....I have loved this every time I have used it - St Tropez Skin Illuminator - it glows a blue/white tone that is truly unique - however, the key is to blend!
...which was done after this photo was taken.
I got an amazing bargain (i.e, 70% off marked price!) in the Harvey Nichols sale yesterday...a pair of vertinigious heels by Manolo Blahnik.
They are a gorgeous bright colour that will mesh well with anything tan/cream and I love the graphic quality to the design. This is what initially attracted me - an almost comic book effect to the material that wraps round the feet...and they look amazing on.
The only barrier is walking. I am perfecting that as we speak and intend to wear them before I head home on Wednesday night.
Any tips for me?
