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.
I don't know why, but I'm deliriously happy to live in a world that includes, “Sequined Party Shorts.”
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!
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.
Belle, I think you just found my New Years party outfit for me! Sequin shorts, tights, booties, and a silk top – Love.
Have you seen the Golden Fleece Bolero at anthropologie? I'm in love…with a jacket.
Those shorts are a little too 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' for my liking.
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?!!
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.
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.
