Sequin Party | Thriftanista in the City


Sequin Party

I picked up a sequin habit in my travels through the land of thrift. When I was younger, I thought sequins were for old ladies. Now that I'm older (not old), I can see I was terribly misguided. Sequins rock! They're so sparkly. What's not to love? It's like wearing a party!

At my sequin party, you will find radiant orchid purple sequins because it is my favorite color. Once I found purple sequins, it brought all the other cool sequins to the party.

The turquoise sequin dress took the party to Vegas and came back as a skirt. You know what they say, what happens in Vegas....

The Calvin Klein sequin skirt was all pencil skirt professional in the thrift store but turned out to be a fun party skirt. Once the shiny silver pumps showed up, they danced the night away.

Chevron striped sequin top was a bit shy and hung out in the closet but when it showed showed out! Incredibly loud. Told a lot of jokes and lifted spirits on a cold winter day.

Last but certainly not least, multicolor sequin tunic came through quite unexpectedly. Who knew such soft, muted tones carried so much personality.

There were some that couldn't make it the sequin party due to timing and budget but I hope they will one day be able to stop by.

I LOVE how you wear sequins. I'm going to look for some dresses to transform into skirts.

LOVE these outfits!! I bought a beautiful gold sequinned jacket before Christmas, and had struggled with outfit ideas, but I love the way you wear your sequins!

Ah! I can't tell you how much I love to thrift sequins and beads. I bought a sequin blazer (which you can find on my blog) and at first I was a little hesitant to wear it but can't get enough of it. I am dying over your blue dress turned skirt! Glad we found each other on Instagram, look forward to reading more.
