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 is where I went cuckoo and styled them for everyday and then you can also see them styled for an appointment!. 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.
If you liked any of these photos, it would help me if you pinned them to your own Pinterest board. It’s one way that others can see our outfits.
Even if you wouldn’t consider purchasing your clothing online, it can be helpful to look through my links to see what is available! It certainly doesn’t hurt my feelings, if you click on them but don’t like them. Just so you know, one of the ways I make money from this blog is through these linked items.
