Sequins and Chanel

Blouse: Merona | Jewels on Blouse: DIY from this event | Skirt: Macy’s | Shoes: Chanel | Bracelet: c/o Mimi’s Boutique

This outfit makes me feel fancy.  Like bring on the holiday parties fancy.  If you read my post from yesterday, this was the top that I DIYed embellished at our Kansas City Blogger Meetup!  I added some details to the collar which make this shirt great for wearing alone and underneath a sweater.  I actually bought this sequined skirt last year and hadn’t worn it until now (so I’m meeting my goal of wearing things with tags), since sequins are just perfect for wearing around the holidays!  The matchy matchy is proud to say that the little triangle detail from the embellishments on my collar match the triangles on the buttons of my red bracelet as well as the bottom jewel in the embellishment being red which matches with the bracelet as well, see I can’t get away from it.  And lastly, I just wanted to introduce you to my new shoes, my new Chanel bow pumps.  These are my first pair of Chanel shoes and now all I can think about are getting more pairs of designer shoes, uh oh.  😉

    I love everything about this outfit, but especially those collar tips and that skirt! I need a sequin pencil skirt… I have a sequin skirt and sequin shorts, but I can never seen to get the skirt to work for me and can’t wear the shorts to work 🙁 This outfit would be perfect for the office though!
