thrifted sequin sweater ($5), secondhand choker necklace ($5), maxi skirt made from a thrifted IKEA curtain ($3)

Okay, despite last week's sequin outfit mishap, THIS I loved wearing. It looks simple because it is. The colors are all in the same family:  cream, gold, dark green. There is pattern-mixing along with some sequin and bling. I think I was trying too hard last time. I feel more myself when it's simple. So I think this means I should resort to t-shirt and jeans for the rest of my life.

  1. Have I just not been paying attention? you made this skirt in both the a knee length AND maxi length? That's pretty awesome. Maybe you can wear the knee-length one as a top with the maxi, and you can look like a curtain for real.

  18. This is really lovely, the maxi dress really tones down the sequins and makes them seem a lot more 'day time' appropriate.
