Sequins Sensation # 422

'S' from Achedemichic recently listed me as one of her daily reads which is flattering, of course. Unfortunately, I feel guilty because try as I might, I don't post enough to be a daily read, however if you want to re-read me like a classic Jane Austin I'd be thrilled.

Thanks to her post I got 13 followers in 2 days (welcome to the fold...)! That's what happens when you impress those in high places....

Jacket? Debbie Shuchat (Winners)
T-shirt? Jacob
Sequined leggings? h&m
Booties? Max Studio (Winners)
Bracelets? Cuba
Earrings? Debatable

So, I finally wore my sequined leggings... I paired them with a cropped structured jacket to emphasize the top of my body rather than the bottom. It's funny, I don't mind wearing a belt and calling it a skirt but leggings still scare me a bit... However, it's cute and I like it. I wish the light picked up the massive sparkle I was actually sporting but I just missed the sunset. These shorter days are tough for a fashion blogger...

The quality is a little lacking (shocking for H&M, I know...), so I started out the night wearing sequined leggings and ended it wearing sequins track pants. If Marc Jacobs debuts football chic sequined track pants in his next collection, he better recognize....

The big deal about me wearing sequined leggings isn't really about the sequins but more about the leggings. This is my first public legging foray in 4 years and even though I do think they are cute, I prefer the structure of a pair of cigarette pants. But Dutch me says I paid money for these suckers, and as long as the butt doesn't bag out too much, you will see them again and possibly again. But if anyone sees a pair of reasonable priced embellished pants, give this kid a shout...

My dear, I do sometimes read the archives when there is nothing new ;)

I love that they started out as leggings and ended up as trackpants! I've not been a stranger to that kind of transformation with cheaper black dress pants that are body hugging at 9pm and have a butt pooch by midnight! Awful!

Love that structured jacket!! And great job with the sequined leggings! S.
