Drab to Fab: Sequins

Hopefully I'll get this post up in time to link up for this week's Drab to Fab Challenge. If not, by all means head on over to Sugar and Spice Friday anyhow and see what the other girls are doing!

Okay, so I realize that a sparkly silver sequined minidress could hardly be considered "drab." But, when you've lusted after and waited for said dress for weeks (seriously, weeks people!) and it finally arrives in all of it's shiny splendour and then doesn't fit, well, something had to be done. And that something most definitely did not involve returning the dress. The item in question is one previously mentioned, found at Express online for a steal ($90 off! Love it!). Sadly, it doesn't exactly grace my 5 foot curvy frame with the same elegance with which it drapes the gorgeous 6 foot, size 00 models in the ads (insert big sigh here). So, until I grow a few inches-not likely-or lose the rest of those lingering happy holiday pounds-in progress- here's how I'm making it work:



Dress/Clutch: Express
Blazer: Forever 21
Shoes: Style & Co (Macys)
Earrings: Kohls

My second DtF look this week is a cardigan bought last season and worn exactly once. It just seemed kinda boring in spite of the fun (leopard? giraffe?) animal print. Soooo... I tried it on with a few different belts and finally  settled on that skinny lil guy which, for me, just made the whole outfit a little more interesting. And, IMO, you can never go wrong with comfy ballet flats!



Sweater/Tank/Jeans: H&M
Ballet flats: Target
Skinny belt: bottom of the closet straggler

What are you wearing this week?
