Dream Combo: Denim & Sequins

denim and sequins combo

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m kind of boring.  I don’t add sugar to my tea, I’d rather be perusing through blogs than hittin’ up da clubz, and I definitely don’t wear sequined vests to the supermarket.  But when I saw this photo of Jessica Szohr, decked out in denim AND sequins, on Garance’s blog

…I knew that I needed to add some pizzazz (in the form of sequins) into my life STAT.  I love the way that Jessica Szohr (whom, on an unrelated note, is the most boring character on Gossip Girl…jeez Vanessa, get a life!) jazzes up a simple, button down denim shirt by pairing it with a fun, sparkly sequin skirt.  The opposing textures mesh perfectly together, making it just as wearable during the daytime as at night.  I love a versatile combo!  It’s retro yet modern, classy yet jazzy.  Business in the front, party in the back.

Fact: I do not own a single sequined item.  But that’s going to change!  I’m quite partial to this Young Fabulous & Broke Bijou Miniskirt, pictured above with a Madewell campfire cargo shirt.  And then, who knows, maybe I’ll start adding sugar to my tea.
