Sequins for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Dressy Version
Quote of the day: “The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.” F. Scott Fitzgerald
Now here’s the category that is familiar to us for our sequined items, right? The last post (here) is where I went cuckoo and styled them for everyday! Sometimes it’s hard to see the sequins in pictures if they are only scattered throughout the clothing, so I’ll describe our items. My dress’s black stripes are sequined, Nancy’s poncho has small sequins interspersed throughout, and mom’s silver shirt is (more obviously) full of them.
50’s Sequins (Dress): Since my dress is short sleeved, I had to add a beaded cardigan.
60’s Sequins (Poncho): Putting the poncho over a dress coupled with heeled boots, can be an easy way to make it more fancy!
70’s Sequins (Shirt): Mom added burgundy trim to this dress to make it a little longer. And the brooch addition is like a short necklace.
Since we all think of sequins as formal, I gathered some more dressy pieces to check out: (with others to see on my facebook page):
