It’s happened again. While going through my pictures for a Dressing Room Diaries post I’ve spotted an item or two I should have bought. I’m not an impulse shopper and see that as a good thing but it also means some items may be unavailable when I do decide I want them. Last week I was captivated by sequins.
This sequined button down shirt caught my eye because it was subtle. I’ve never thought of myself as a disco queen so subtle appeals to me.
The clear palettes were a soft shimmer against the ivory fabric and so pretty. I like it tucked in and worn as a tunic over leggings or skinny pants.
These skinny jeans with bows down the side seam were intended to be cropped but were full length on me. They’re best for women with a straight shape or slim thighs because they do add visual weight. Honestly? I felt my legs were too short for this kind of ornamentation.
This top jumped into my hand the second I entered the store. My inner disco queen raised her head and said hey baby! The color was intoxicating.
I took lots of pictures of it but couldn’t imagine how I’d wear it. Now that I have figured it out (jeans and casual shoes)…it’s sold out in petite. Snooze you lose comes to mind.
I loved the scale of this hat. Its jaunty brim and wine color is a classic for winter. I see this hat being stylish for years to come.
I always recommend imagining how you’ll wear an item and the ways it will coordinate with what you already own before buying it. Orphan pieces that won’t mix and match can end up a waste of money.
Do you impulse shop or plan how you can wear a new item before you buy it?
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
