Time for Sequins!

The helpmeet and I recently headed out for some dinner, and drinks (of course) at one of our favorite local New Haven restaurants. Seeing as how I spend the majority of my time living a rather unglamorous life of teaching (and I just gotta throw in here that I love my students this term) and submitting job applications and writing at home in my pjs, it felt pretty damn good to dress up and don some sequins.







dress: Tulle Clothing / blazer: F21 / knee highs: We Love Colors / faux suede wedges: Target / cocktail ring: F21

Love this, that blazer is so awesome! How do you find all these great pieces at F21, I can never find anything worthy of buying in there anymore XD

I've been looking for a sequined dress (though I have no clue where I'd wear it). Yours is awesome!

BEAUTIFUL!
You look amazing and the dress is gorgeous, better of all the contrast it makes against the bright coral of the jacket.
Great job.

This look is stunning! I'm loving the sequin dress and the pop of colour from the blazer is absolutely brilliant. Also, loving those adorable knee socks off to check out their site -ASAP, I've got to have them. Hope you're having a fantastic week!! xo veronika
