we all scream for…. sequins!

25 Nov


Since when I was younger, I’ve always had eyes for pretty, sparkly things. Glitter & sequins are notoriously tacky. But when used correctly, a bit of sparkle & attention never hurts.  Here’s a few pretty sparkly dresses/skirts/tops that have caught my eyes!

  1. ABS by Allen Schwartz pewter sequin dress
  2. ABS by Allen Schwartz multi sequined dress
  3. Single ombre sequin dress
  4. Hannah Joe ‘Meva’ dress
  5. ABS by Allen Schwartz gold sequined dress

  1. Ashish sequin sweatpants
  2. Isabel Marant leggings
  3. Anna Sui silk-tulle sequin dress
  4. Marc by Marc Jacobs cardigan (SOLD OUT)
  5. Matthew Williamson dEgradE dress

  1. AKA New York black boucle sequin blazer
  2. Marc by Marc Jacobs deedee bolero
  3. DVF ‘Amora’ sequin dress
  4. Sonia black sequin top

  1. Topshop sequin playsuit
  2. Witchery  mirrored knit
  3. Witchery front drape sequin jacket
  4. Topshop asymmetric dress by Rare Opulence

The key to wearing sequins is to keep the rest of your outfit simple and plain. Stick to one color palette, don’t add more lines or patterns, just let these sequinned pieces be the centre of attention and keep accessories to a minimum (okay, maybe one or two cocktail rings..)

nail polish!!

22 Nov

Current nail polish count: 55 bottles (and I am sure will keep adding. and yes i am obsessed.)

it will be a while until i go through all of the colors! LOL

here’s a few that i have tried…

 

I must say I was a bit iffy to put this one on, but I had a purple phase so I decided to anyway. The color by O.P.I is sooo pretty! :) Plus, the cute little box that came in, Shrek-tacular minis are too adorable to pass!

O.P.I.'s Rumple's Wiggin (Shrek Edition)

Shrek-tacular minis!

So the next one, I decided to try this color. It’s a bit brighter than what I am used to, but OMIGOSH, can I just say, Mecca Cosmetica‘s nail polish is to die for! it’s quick dry, the brush is extra wide and it has the perfect thickness. Plus, it’s the top 6 most popular color all year long!

Mecca Cosmetica's Margaret

This one, is the color that I have actually been looking for. I have been dying to use silver nail polish but just haven’t found like a really good one. But this nail polish by Kit Cosmetics is just the right color and sparkle :) I even had someone asked me what my nail polish is!

Kit Cosmetic's Moving Up

more nail polish coming up! :) i am going to give my nails a few days of rest… until we continue!!! :)
