For the love of sequins

Let me start by saying this is not a fashion blog and never will be. Mainly because I know zilch about fashion and don't proclaim to, however from time to time I like to write about pretty dresses and this is one of those times. Only it's not just dresses. 

Whilst I hate the winter with a passion, I love winter clothes, specifically when we get near to Christmas and everyone ramps up the glitz  I'm a bit of a magpie and will admit to last year buying both sequin leggings and a sequin miniskirt.  Honestly. The more sequins the better. But I'm not just limited to sequins, oh no. Any kind of metallic colour, thread or embellishment will be scrutinized by myself very carefully. I do not believe it is possible to be too glitzy once December rolls around and lets just be clear on one thing - sequins are not just for nighttime.

So here I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite current items. I'm not saying I'd buy all these because mainly, I'd look like complete crap in most of them being a dumpy, 5ft 2 (on a good day) but a girl can dream right?  In no particular order...

Saskia Sequin Cadogan Dress - £109 - Monsoon
Karmen Dress - £195 - Reiss
Moonray Sequin Dress - £155 - French Connection
Sequinned Sweater with Chiffon - £45.99 - Zara
Red Textured Scoop Back Top - £28 - Miss Selfridge
Winter Gems Tunic Dress - £165 - French Connection
Petite Sequin Skater Dress - £59 - Topshop
Lotus Sequin Dress - £65 - Monsoon
Bella Sequin Skirt - £135 - Reiss
Sienna Sequin Dress - £79 - Monsoon
Silver Cluster Sequin Pencil Skirt - £19.99 - New Look
Like I said, most of them would look rubbish on me but it doesn't stop me liking them! I've tried the Monsoon Lotus dress on, loved it on the hanger, it was frumptastic on me and the Monsoon Saskia would swamp me.

How about you? Do you love a sequin? Have you spotted any gorgeous party clothes yet?
