Curves Aroun the World: Week 19 - SEQUINS

Good morning, y'all!!!

Sequins theme for this weeks Curves Around the World has just arrived and happened. Since I am not a fan of sequins I really was scratching my head for this one because I have no sequined items in my closet at all. I thought I would buy a top or dress just to make this post possible - ran around looking came back tired with no luck. NO LUCK AT ALL :)

Few days ago whilst resting in my room my eyes met up with this sequined beret from my hat stand and whoallaaaaaa an idea immediately came :) I bought this beret this previous winter at Mr Price with another sequined navy one. Thought id wear them during winter just to familiarise myself with sequins as I own none in my closet at the moment. I had so many ideas as this beret is my focal point for todays post  but I ended up with this version: which I hope is appealing to you as it does for me.

I paired  this outfit with my recent buy *fashion world Spring Dress* - All other items worn are just thrown in to spice up and jazz up my outfit. I am pleased with this outfit. Hope you as well!!!

Are you the Queen of Sequins? Why? What do you usually wear them with??? What is your recent sequin buy?
 Wish id continued taking pics in my office with my phone - they are so clear and much nicer I think!!!

  1. Love that dress. I don't own any sequin items and really haven't been all that crazy about the sequin trend. I like how you incorporated the sequin beret...very subtle. There once was a sequin tank that I wanted from Lane Bryant, but it sold out before I could make up my mind if I "really" wanted it. lol

    1. Thanx Crystal, I am also not keen at all on Sequins I guess that is why I opted to buy this beret from the start - it really did bail me with this post. Am sure you will find something suitable when time and choices allows in future: no pressure, until it feels right - right??? :)

  2. OMG u're gorgeous, you rock that seqiuns !love the dress!!

  3. Latest sequin purchase is on the blog and no, I, like you, am not a big sequin person. But that's what the challenges are all about, right? ;) I have a thing for berets, so that particular sequined piece has my full attention. Fantastic accessory :)

  4. Thulie I have the same hat as you but it's in black and I didn't even think of wearing it. I love the way you styled the beret with the floral dress and its so cute.


  5. I'm not a sequin person either but hey you look good!That hat is so cute! I like that you incorporated the theme using an accessory as it's a bit different. That dress is so nice too! It looks like its one of those really good versatile dresses that can be casual, or dressed up for special occasions.

    1. Thanx Helen - I also surprised myself with this weeks theme, I was not confident at all :)

  6. The gold beret is sooooo gorgeous!! I love it!!!!!! Its so glam looking. You suit berets! That dress is gogeous too!

  7. Can I borrow this bag please ? lol You look fabulous.

    1. Ofcoz you can but just for a day, lol - thanx gal :)
