EBEW: Sequins and Sparkle

Top: American Eagle ($15, shop)  |  Blazer: Macy's ($21)  |  Jeans: Forever 21 ($9.50)  |  Grey Pumps: Target ($8)  |  Necklace: Charlotte Russe (?)  |  Earrings (gifted)  |  Ring: c/o Ellaine Calas of Stella & Dot (shop)

Truth?  I haven't worn this outfit yet, and even though I'm backed up on outfit posts from last week, I snapped pics and posted this outfit early for Everybody Everywear.  I plan to wear it this weekend for a holiday party...that counts, right?   I was actually going to sit out EBEW again this month, but AE had a 40% off sale, and this top was available.  I was planning on buying a sequined top someday anyway, so this was a no-brainer. 

As you can see, today was a cloudy, rainy day.  I wish I had better self-portrait skills so that you could see the ring more clearly because I kept the clothes neutral so that the ring would pop, and for me, the ring makes the whole outfit.  It's still fascinating to me how such a tiny accessory can, at least in my mind, pull together an outfit.

  8. Cute - I like how the neutrals keep the sequins from being over-the-top. I bought a sequin tank for a holiday party last year and am still trying to figure out other ways to style it (haven't worn it much since...) - so I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

  10. Ditto on my post for EBEW. I love contributing, and I wanted to show off my haircut, which now that I think of it may be inspired by your hair. Got bored so I cut it haha. Sequins are great, and even better on sale! Love this take on it :)

  20. I feel your pain on the self portrait skills. I take my own pictures too and sometimes what I think is a great detail just doesn't come across in my pictures. Such is life! Cute outfit!

  22. This is a little bit different than what you normally wear: a little less colorful and more muted. I absolutely adore the ring and the earrings. I have a very similar pair of earrings that I am actually wearing currently. Your AE tank is so cute, you had to snap it up. =)

  23. The length of 1 text just isn't enough to tell why I did it paydayuk soldiers that are assigned overseas might also sign up for military loans, because of fax and email.
