It's Always Time for Sequins

a couple shades of blue...

Sequins people. SEQUINS! I love this skirt. Even though it is literally a pain in the ass to sit in. And I inevitably end up losing a couple (or ten) sequins when I wear it. It makes a lovely swishy noise when I walk, and frankly I think I look pretty damn HAWT!

But was feeling a little chilly! HA! I am trying to find new places around my house to take fashion photos. This is right behind our garbage bins actually...hmmm...And I am standing in a couple feet of snow. On a hill. And my tripod is an electrical box. Classy lady over here.

And now it is time to check out some other classy ladies - nice segue - and their Shades of Blue.

And I would like to finish with a "my son is fricken awesome" story.

We listened to this new song in the car on the way to dinner from Grandma's on the night I took these photos. And by listened, I mean I sung the lyrics at the top of my lungs, and Dude & I jammed out. When we finally got home, I downloaded the whole album and stuck this song into his playlist. And he proceeded to sing the chorus for me, over and over and over again. When he was in the bathroom. When he was setting up his Heroica game. When he was headed up to bed. He was even trying to imitate the singer's voice, and admonished me when I didn't get it raspy enough.

"This is it, the Apocalypse.
I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones.
Enough to make my systems blow.
Welcome to the New Age.
I'm Radioactive."
from "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons

    You're fancy!! Sequins. Whoa. I can't say I own anything with sequins. They're fun, though.

  4. Yeah girrrrl. Rockin sequins in the snow. Love it. :)

  5. I didn't even notice that skirt was sequins at first- love it! I also love it paired with the denim shirt- fun combo! Now get back inside before you freeze... :)

  6. I love how the tights look with the skirt, really cute!

  7. I love the sequins and how they're a bit oversized. So fun!


I would love to hear from you, even if it's just a quick "Hello"...Comments make my day, dontcha know!
