Sequins Make Me Smile

October 4, 2011

I can’t believe it: I bought something today, not on sale, and on kind-of-a-whim… just because. Because I needed a pick-me-up. While I have bought on a whim, I rarely do so for full price. However, after being down lately (more on that probably in a few weeks), I realized that I can only eat so many Sour Patch Kids and needed to take more drastic action.

Enter: this sequin clutch!

MY CLUTCH is on the homepage of Zara’s web site! I didn’t realize that when I bought it — I got it after seeing those in the blog-o-sphere style it, realizing my local store only had one (total sign), and then some final loving, slight Twitter coercion from Grace . But yeah, my clutch is on the homepage and is totally stunning… I’m feeling pretty cool right now. So much so that I want to walk around my room holding it and then of course, share iwth you (PS: hope you know that Zara now has an e-commerce site? Dangerous and awesome all rolled into one).

Awesome sequin clutch also comes in black. This much sequin and sparkle can make anyone’s day!

    If someone were to have told me a few years ago that sequins would come back in style, I would not have believed them. But this is one trend I really like. In fact, I just wore a sequined shirt under a blue blazer yesterday! I love your clutch, especially since it’s gold.

    I can totally relate to your first sentence in this post. I find myself rationalizing my random purchases too. HAHA Every girl needs those pick-me-ups!

      haha for real re: the sequins! Can’t believe it but I totally love them. A skirt is next on my list, and yes… we all need a pick-me-up once in a while! xo. Great to connect with you.

    WAAA! The clutch is no longer on the site (save for the homepage photo). Ho-hum. That said, I’ve really wanted a sequin skirt for quite some time, and I think I might make THAT shopping plunge. :) FASHION IS FUN!

      Haha, yes, I’ve wanted a sequin skirt, too! That said, it’s a little more challenging to find an affordable option that’s not two inches long. Loving the J Crew ones (just not sure I want to spend around $100). So sad about the clutch not being available anymore. :(
