How i Wore It: Sequin Skirt

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAhow I wore it - the details - dahlia

Selfies! Is anyone else as confused and embarrassed about this new phenomenon as I am?

An interview that has remained vivid in my memory is one with J. Crew’s Creative Director, Jenna Lyons. The woman is the Einstein of the fashion world, she created the perfect equation for everyday attire, and it is when she described something as making her day “sparkle” in an interview I can’t seem to find now. I loved her use of the word sparkle. There are lots of things that can make a day sparkle – food, the sun, a Β bike ride, and fashion. And wearing sequins, wherever – shoes, skirt, or pants, will absolutely make your day sparkle both literally and figuratively. This skirt comes from an online boutique that I just discovered – Dahlia. They’reΒ a British fashion brand that has a playful personality. Their clothes have a quirkyΒ twist but are still traditional and affordable. And for the seamstress out there, the construction warrants the price. This skirt was fully lined, even the waistband was even clean finished!

With spring just inches away, I’m already visualizing what I’ll be wearing this skirt with – a cotton blouses with lots of ruffles – and the selfies I’ll be taking (that was a joke).

    I could not agree more about adding sparkles to one’s day! Sparkly bag is on my shopping list.

    Hahaha, yeah I don’t get the whole selfies thing. It’s right up there with the duckface.

    They do have some cute pieces. I love the sleeveless shirts with embellished collars.

    Cute shop! I have always loved a little sparkle, although I have never worn a fully sequined skirt in a normal day-to-day outfit. Maybe I need to push the envelope a little more! πŸ˜‰

    Gorgeous skirt! It really looks like a ‘substantial’ piece, which I appreciate. Love how you wore it all monochrome here, very elegant and wearable.

    Love the sparkly skirt paired with that pale, conservative sweater, it’s just right. I have always had a rather reserved style (even as a kid!), but have been inexplicably drawn to sequins lately. Maybe it’s finally time to add some sparkle to my wardrobe!

    The sparkly skirt looks amazing on you! I am not such a sequin person myself, but I love seeing it on others. Love it with the sweater too!

    I didn’t realise ‘selfies’ was a term until I saw it on a list of words to ban for 2013. The list included humblebrag, duckface, and some other words I didn’t know were words.

    Anyway, the skirt is lovely – I have a developing thing with sequins. I bought some fabric ( http://peppermintandpaisley.com/tag/sequins/ ) and I’m still trying to figure out what to do with it. I’ve never thought about wearing straight up sequin on a regular day but who knows…

    It seems like our blogs are sequin twinsies today! AND, I wore my gold and silver sequin flats to class this morning. Which, if I am not mistaken, I also wore to our meetup. It is most certainly a full-on sparkle Monday. It goes without saying, I am in love with that skirt!
