Sequins: Cardigan Style

More sequins!







Cardigan: Old Navy / Dress: American Apparel / Shoes: Target

In unrelated news, as many of my twitter followers now know, my helpmeet sustained a shoulder injury playing hockey last night which resulted in us spending 5 hours in the emergency room last night (fortunately it's nothing serious, he's just in a sling, on a lot of meds, and generally kind of cranky)...after getting home at 4 am and sleeping until noon today (probably the only real perk of being a grad student on a writing fellowship...there is no where I actually have to be at any given time) I'm totally beat and a little cranky myself! I hope everyone has a very happy weekend though - I will be spending mine catching up on sleep.

You look lovely, Courtney. (That's a given, though) I love those wedges! I can't believe I didn't see them when I went to Target. Good to hear that everything turned out ok. I ended up going to bed at 8 this morning, so I'll be catching up on sleep as well.

Five hours in the ER is enough to make anyone cranky! Thank goodness you look cute!

Minnesota Maven said...

Ick, I love hockey but hate watching loved ones play. It's inherently an injury prone sport. I hope he's on the mend. In the meantime you look great, those shoes are making me jealous!

Ahh, Courtney, I love the sequins! And your shoes!! Although, seeing them makes me a little sad because Target canceled my online order for them! :( Did you say that you bought yours in store recently?

you have the best shoes! They look perfect with that awesome cardigan. I can't believe it's from old navy. It looks super high end! I love when people have coups like that.

now THIS is a cool outfit. i love your shoes and your sweater. everything is so balanced. i'm sorry to hear about your "helpmeet," though! what is a helpmeet? i actually don't know. i'm assuming it's your husband or good friend? anyway, glad he's ok, whoever he is.
