Sequin Sea

I think most women love a little sparkle in their wardrobe. I'm not talking about the beauty pageant variety, but a sequin top or sparkly shoe for cocktails? Absolutely.

I was recently reminded of this notion when a group of my friends travelled to Las Vegas for our friend Alex's 30th birthday. I wasn't able to partake in the festivities (i.e. rolling around on the casino floor), but I was able to be a part of some of the pre-trip shopping. The ladies took it to a whole new level of sparkly. I think the bedazzler was set to high that weekend.

Here's a close-up of Alex's sequined leggings which look amazing on her mile long legs.

Last month I also got to indulge my inner beauty pageant contestant. I bought an amazing red sequined vintage dress last fall and hadn't had the opportunity to wear it.....until recently. My man and I had tickets to the Gold Medal Olympic Hockey Game. As we were cheering for Canada (apologies to our US readers) and being that this was one of the most historic sporting events in Canada's history, we thought it would be appropriate to dress up. So I wore the dress. What I love about the dress is that while it's bright, red and sequined, it has a demure shape.

Here's me after we won GOLD with Dean Caten (of DSquared2) who also happened to be celebrating in Vancouver that night. He might have been "celebrating" a little more heavily than we were...

Apparently sparkles and sequins are big for spring. Here are some sparkly things in our shop...
