Sequins 3 (Appointment)

 Sequins for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Appointment Version

Sequins for the 50, 60 & 70 year old women.

Quote of the day: “We awaken in others the same attitude of mind we hold toward them.” Elbert Hubbard

Now even more kooky than wearing your sequins for a casual day (shown here), would be to try to wear them either for the office or a professional appointment. I mean, what would people think? That you’re going out to a party afterwards? Or worse, that you enjoy life? Hah…just trying to put things into perspective. If you have a piece of clothing hanging in your closet, you might as well get some good usage out of it. And even if you wouldn’t wear it for this category, maybe it’ll spur an idea of how to wear it more! We did style these same sequined clothing items for a dressier moment here.

50’s Sequins (Dress): I figured a business-like vest could add a touch of officeness. This vest was bought as a blazer, and then I had mom remove the sleeves!

60’s Sequins (Poncho): A collared shirt, leopard wedges and the swing trench coat make the sequined poncho seem business casual.

Poncho: Tasha (similar here in black)~~Jeans: Chaps (similar here)~~Jacket: Forever 21 (similar here)~~Blouse: Living Doll (similar here)~~Shoes: Franco Sarto (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)

70’s Sequins (Shirt): Mom has only worn this shirt once even though she’s had it for 15 years! Adding heels and a blazer make it more work appropriate, I think—although maybe the pin is too much?

  • I love a touch (or a lot!) of sequins – you three are all fabulous. Thanks for sharing,


    • Jodie Filogomo

      They are a fun embellishment, eh?

  • Oooooo! Sequins! You’re speaking my language, ha ha ha! I love these. I think these days you can wear sequins just about anywhere, unless you’re in a very sober profession like a lawyer or doctor. Your mom’s pin with the sequins looks super, imho.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I think you’re right…especially because they can really brighten your mood!

  • I love a little bit of sparkle and I think you all carried it off beautifully!

      Thanks Leanne!

    These are my favorite of the sequin series. Love your long vest (creative refashion), Nancy’s leopard wedges are a great touch and Mom’s Burgundy and Blazer combo is wonderful.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Tracey! It really was quite fun to see what we could do with the sequins!

  • Great job on making sequins appropriate for an appointment! Hope your New Year is off to a great start…although it looks like you are in trouble with your mom already. hahaha

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Happy New Year to you too!!! I’m always in trouble with mom!! It’s a good thing though…she still has to put up with me since I’m an only child!! Can’t wait to see all your outfits with that new stuff you got!!

  • Charlotte Miller

    This is 70’s model (Mom) and I actually wore the sequin shirt right after I made it for new Years Eve 2000.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Okay…call me a liar for once in 15 years!!! 🙂
