Sequin Chic

It’s that time of year again where holiday parties take up a lot of space in our social calendars. While it’s always fun to gather with friends and family, the “what to wear” factor can sometimes be stressful, at least I know it is for me! This past weekend I had my first holiday party of the season and had been attempting to outfit plan for a few days to no avail. When this sequin and velvet top showed up at my doorstep from Piperlime there was no longer a question of what to wear, because this was it! It is absolutely stunning (even more so) in person. I paired it with these AG jeans and a chambray top to give it a more casual feel, but I think it would also look great with leather leggings and a chunky necklace. Let’s be honest…the possibilities are endless with it. I definitely felt like I was having a moment of chic in this sequin number, that’s for sure!

  6. The sweater is so lovely! I bet it is even more stunning in person. Cameras sometimes don't do justice to the texture of velvet things. Great shoes too. I love the ankle straps.
