10th Commandment: October 28

Oct 28, 2010

I know that I have a no shorts policy on this blog, but my love of sequins trumps everything.  It also helps that these are loose fitting and meant to be worn with tights.

    I saw a girl wearing shorts with booties walk into the cannon building this morning. Even though she looked cute I couldn't help but think of the look on her coworkers faces. I would send her home.

  2. Shannon says:

    I don't know why, but I'm deliriously happy to live in a world that includes, “Sequined Party Shorts.”

  3. Belle says:

    As the name suggests these are strictly party attire. I also think the loose fit helps conceal the flaws. I certainly wouldn't wear them without the tights. But I thought they would look cute with a loose fitting white silk blouse, a big necklace and some booties or cute pumps. I wouldn't wear them with tall boots though, that is def. jumping the shark.

    As I clicked this link from Twitter I simultaneously said “Belle likes sequin shorts?” “There must be a guest blogger today” LOL I love them!

  5. Belle says:

    Sometimes, you have to be willing to step out your comfort zone. I thought I would hate them, but I tried them on and thought they were great.

  6. Meg says:

    Belle, I think you just found my New Years party outfit for me! Sequin shorts, tights, booties, and a silk top – Love.

  7. Danae says:

    Have you seen the Golden Fleece Bolero at anthropologie? I'm in love…with a jacket.

  8. Michelle says:

    Those shorts are a little too 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' for my liking.

  9. EAC says:

    Danae, that jacket is fierce. I had to laugh at one of the reviews, though. Who in the heck would pick out that jacket, thinking that they could wear it to work?!!

  10. Belle says:

    Danae, the jacket is neat but on my long torso, no bueno.

    I think you could wear it to work IF you do something creative like advertising, graphic design, manage a gallery. But it's def not for the Hill, and this is coming from the queen of sequins as work attire.

  11. Kristen says:

    I saw someone wearing them on another blog and they actually looked good. I kind of want to try them, but I don't know if I would like how they would look on me.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

WFH Outfit: Denim and Black

Does anyone really know how to dress for a rainy February? It’s not winter. It’s not spring. Sweaters seem heavy. Just a shirt feels like you’ll be cold. It’s a puzzle.
