I am a total magpie. At the thrift store, I reach for anything sparkly, shiny or bright. And yet somehow, I have literally nothing sequined in my (not exactly tiny) wardrobe! So I jumped at the chance to style this sequined skirt from Rebecca, because SHINY.
I was pleasantly surprised by how soft and comfortable this skirt was — the inside is an almost sweatshirt-like knit. So this is basically my dream garment — soft and cozy on the inside, flashy and glittery on the outside.
I really have to push myself to not go full-on matchy-matchy with my outfits, so in this case, I picked an orange lipstick to contrast with the cool tones of silver and turquoise. But I couldn’t resist the peacock-feather earrings!
I was afraid the skirt would be too long on me, but I actually liked how the length and cut gave a vaguely retro feel to the outfit. I have a pretty straight up-and-down figure, so I always try to find a way to accentuate my waist — in this case, with a belt.
