I'm a bit of a magpie, especially when it comes to a bit of glitz and it really is the season for that isn't it? Are sequins even allowed outside of December?
At the grand old age of 32, last week I purchased sequin leggings. I realise that sequins + leggings + 32 year old thighs are not really things that should go together but lets say its part of my mid-life crisis, my thrisis, if you will. I plan to wear my new sequin leggings tomorrow night, when I shall be acting like a complete squealing fan-girl at a gig in Birmingham. I think this is what they mean by growing old disgracefully.
Anyhow, it being almost Christmas and all, means that I have several party nights planned in the next few weeks and more than enough occasions to warrant some serious sequin-age. Unfortunately I'm carrying a bit of *cough* winter weight *splutter* right now so whilst I want to be wearing this...
... it's just not going to be happening. Plus, I'm ample in the boob department right now and I think that would just make me look a bit slutty. Sometimes I'd love to be flat-chested!
I really like this one shoulder dress from Red Herring at Debenhams (£38.00), but again, aforementioned bosom means I need to wear a strapless bra and no doubt spend all night readjusting it.
This Ozlem sequin dress from French Connection is near damn perfect, if I had the figure (and the wallet for it) It's £140.00 and comes in black and gunmetal - I've posted the gunmetal as it shows better on the photo. I love this dress. I wish I owned it. Sigh.
Actually French Connection have some corkers, as they also have the Sam Sequins Cowl Dress in Rust Red (reduced in price to £160.00)
If I had more money I'd buy the sophisticated Kamille from Reiss but at £225.00 it's way over budget and as it seems sold out in most sizes, highly unlikely I'll be snapping it up in a sale!
Argh, too many pretty dresses and way too little time and of course, even less money. Am I alone in my love? Will you be bedecking yourself in sequins this month?
love & kisses
