Week o the Sequin

Because my work holiday party is this Wednesday, I decided this was the Week o the Sequin. Or Week o the Sequins, as it were, since there will be many sequins. It is NOT, as I read from time to time on the interwebs, the Week o the Sequence, and which drives. me. BONKERS. Week o the Sequence denotes a week of continued or connected series; a succession of repetitions; or even 7 days of a set of elements ordered so that they can be labeled with the positive integers, according to Webster.

A Week o SEQUINS, on the other hand, is a delightful confection of small, sparkly plates of shining metal or plastic used for ornamentation, especially on clothing.

Now THAT is something I can get on board with.

I thought this vintage beaded shell was poyfect to kick things off, espesh since I took it to The Lou for girls' weekend and never wore it.

It was pretty bereft from not getting worn for girls' weekend. I don't know about YOUR clothing, but MINE is very persnickety, and items tend to get their feelings hurt if they are not put in rotation as often as they feel they should be.

Some pieces can be quite bitchy, when you get right down to it. I don't want to name any names. Just don't tell gold vintage jacket what you read here. BEYOTCH.
