Gossip Girl, sequins and a day off

Gossip Girl Season 3 has finally started! I'm infatuated with Blair and Chuck all over again (just had to mention that).

A few days ago I purchased a rather inexpensive, black, sequined tank top. The front is totally covered in sequins, the back is just black. Now usually I would shy away from things covered in sequins, as I have always found them a little too "vegas showgirl" for my liking, but I thought it might be fun to try wearing more glitzy and glam clothes to parties/dinners. I think pairing the top with heels and jeans should work well.
Do you like sequins?

Tomorrow, as some of you know, is a public holiday here in South Africa. Its Heritage Day and National Braai Day. So, I am off to go and enjoy a braai (aka barbecue). I doubt I will post tomorrow as I will probably be too busy eating meat, making salad and going for rides on The Boyfs bike.
Catch you all on Friday :)

  3. I bought a black dress with some sequins about a year ago and normally I am not a fan. But I have to say that was a fantastic buy - so I think it really just depends!

  4. Sequins do ad a "glam" factor. Yes, your top with some jeans and heels will surely make you the belle of the ball, er, braai.

    Have a fabulous time!

  8. I think sequins can be glam depending on if you pair them with relatively neutral and not-so-flashy pants/skirt and other accessories. A little goes a long way.

    P.S. I heart you and your Gossip Girl love.

  10. I found that sequins are itchy and catch on things. I didn't know that until last Christmas when mom gave me a sequined vest.

    I have to wonder how performers put up with them?

  15. Sequins are fantastic! Nothing wrong with a little showgirl sometimes. Just try not to get carried away and go head to toe sequins! Enjoy your day off, very jealous!

  20. Do you have access to Season 3?????? I'm almost done with Season 2. So glad to hear I have another 25 odd episodes to look forward to.

    The top sounds nice - I share your sentiments on sequins but worn in the right way can look stunning!

    Have a great weekend x

  21. Waha... I hope Heritage and Braai day was as fab for you as it was for me!

    Sequins and me don't get along. I just have bad associations with the things.
