Sequin Silhouette

By Destinee Hodge

So on my visit to Prototype Vintage Design I was looking around for something that might be  good for the graduation party season. I along with so many of my friends will be celebrating success and will be looking for dresses for various outings. In perusing the racks, I saw an absolutely adorable sequin dress that would be amazingly versatile (perfect if you want to recycle a main piece for your looks).

Let’s talk about the fabulous detailing of the dress first. The layers of color ranging from black to pink make it not only more interesting but useful for many different outfits. You can think about pairing it with a nice blazer or  leggings depending on how formal the event is. Your shoe options with this dress are also infinite.  You could pair it with a great pair of boots or stilettos depending on the length of your night.

The dress was $68, not exactly on my “most affordable” list but definitely on my wish list.  Besides, if you plan on using the dress for multiple different outfits, it would definitely be a wise purchase.

Another detail that I really like about this dress is the bow tied around the waist. It adds definition without making the dress too busy. One word of caution with sequins is that they aren’t daytime friendly. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen women wearing full-on sequin dresses during the day. It’s absolutely blinding to passers-by so make sure to stay considerate and leave these gorgeous pieces for the night time!

  2. Just a tip: You or one of the bloggers should check out New Bohemia on SoCo. It’s actually a cute little place with a nice selection. It’s also right next to Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds, so you can top off your purchases with some jewelry and accessories!
