Sequins for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Casual Version
Quote of the day: “Know your limits, but never accept them.” Anonymous
By time we reach “middle age,” I’m sure there is at least one sequined item in your closet. This piece of clothing has probably been worn for a festive occasion or holiday since we all think of these glittery embellishments as special and fun! But have you ever worn that item for a casual day out? This is the category that I received the “eye roll” from my wonderful models (even if I couldn’t see it…I could feel it!), but I’m on a mission. Why not wear your nice clothes? Not just for “special” occasions, but also for everyday! Call me crazy, but here goes!
50’s Sequins (Dress): My goal was to wear the dress with my new houndstooth tennies and by belting the dress to make it quite a bit shorter, I found I loved this look!
Dress: All Green (similar here)~~Tunic: Elie Tahari for Kohl’s (similar here)~~Shoes: Payless (similar here)~~Tights: La Scala (similar here)~~Scarf: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)
60’s Sequins (Poncho): Even though Nancy’s poncho has a sequin here and there, it is relatively casual. So the addition of leggings was an easy choice.
Poncho: Tasha (similar here in ecru)~~Leggings: Cold Water Creek (similar here)~~Boots: Enzo Angiolini (similar here)~~Scarf: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: I knitted it (similar here in beads)
70’s Sequins (Shirt): The hiking boots and jean jacket help somewhat subdue the blinginess of the shirt, right?
Shirt: Mom made it (similar here)~~Jeans: LOFT (similar here)~~Top Under: Wintersilks (similar here)~~Jacket: Guess (similar here)~~Boots: Great Land (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Pins: (similar here & here)
