instagram sequins holiday fashion zara

Hey girls! As part of my effort to up the personal ante on here, I’m sharing a few of my instagram snaps! I took these this weekend and everything shown is my by fav: Zara. This month more than any other is a perfect excuse to wear ALL of the sequins in your closet that only see the light of day (or night!) once a year. And I actually think I’m seeing more sequins this year than ever before. I personally haven’t bought any sequin pants, shorts, or skirts yet because quite frankly, I’m intimidated, but I think the key to coming off as more high fashion and less Charlotte Russe clubwear is in fresh prints like these Navajo inspired geometric looks.



You cannot receive any higher endorsement than Taylor Tomasi and Hanne Gaby Odiele, two of the most unique dressers I’ve ever seen. I’m quite sure we would all love an ounce of their fashion ingenuity! Their pieces are both from the Ashish Fall 2011 collection, but there are some similar prints at lower price points available at Zara and Asos.

I suppose my main hang-up when purchasing sequined pieces is the feeling that they’re only appropriate one night of the year: New Year’s Eve. But I don’t think that’s the case with these. For the summer I’d pair this skirt with a white blazer and tank top and some simple leather sandals like these. Now, I’ve successfully convinced myself that it’s multi-functional, does that qualify for a purchase??
