Daily Covet: Anthropologie Starlight Sequin Jacket

This time of year, I am D-runk on all things sequined.

I would wear it head to toe if I was more into bedazzling during the rest of the year.

But this super adorable jacket from Paper Crown is so subtle in ivory that I could wear it with literally anything and I’m not just saying that. In fact, I might even go so far as to wear it with a black sequined mini I already own… sortof like a suit!

But more likely, I’d pair it with boyfriend jeans and satin pumps or leather shorts and a silk cami for girls’ night out.

Daily Covet: Pink Sequin Mini

Pink is possibly my favorite color when it comes to dressing.

Sometimes, it’s hard to give it up when all the beautiful new fall colors hit the stores each year.  But thanks to this LOFT mini skirt, I won’t have to.

Pink.  Sequins.  And Mini.  Three of my favorite words — now they are all in one delicious skirt.  And because it’s from LOFT, I know it will fit great and be very affordable.  25% off the purchase price will also go towards the Breast Cancer Research Foundation®.  What’s better than looking great AND being philanthropic?

I can’t wait to play around with this little number!

Daily Covet: Sandals with a Pop

Is there a theme today?  I guess if there was, it would be items that go pop!  But I popped in completely the opposite direction from the disco jeans…

I ran across these adorable sandals today.

Seychelles Snapdragon Heels, modcloth.com $89

While it would be easy to throw them on with a beige linen sundress I have, I went looking for another feminine frock instead.  Something with a little more oomph!  Bring on the very affordable Dorothy Perkins sleeveless dress:

Navy belted pintuck dress, dorothyperkins.com $39

But an outfit isn’t complete without statement-making jewelry and a classic handbag.  So here you go!

Daily Covet: Pants with Pizzazz

AG Adriano Goldschmied navy ankle legging sequin pants, http://www.agjeans.com $225

When I was shopping for my Christmas party outfit several weeks ago, I tried on the most fabulous pants.  Too fabulous for my Midwestern town – a town that thinks khakis are dress pants – but fabulous nonetheless.  (I love you anyway, town!)

They were so fun to wear while parading around on tip-toes (simulating heels), in the dressing room.  And with a navy silk flowy tunic, they were nothing short of monochromatic perfection… that is, for someone who’s big night out doesn’t consist of two young children and serious sorting of sugar packets at the local neighborhood “pub food” place.  I mean I love Goldberg’s, but I won’t be wearing sparkle pants there anytime soon.

And what’s better?  They are made with lots of stretch by AG Adriano Goldschmied, a very wearable designer label for those of us, who have had children.  They called them leggings, but they are very 5-pocket-jean-looking leggings, if you ask me.

No matter, try them on for yourself and make plans.  Big plans!

Daily Covet: All dressed up…

Tibi tuxedo jacket, shopbop.com $550; Lucinda Playsuit, frenchconnection.com $116; B. Makowsky Vada, 6pm.com $77; Leola clutch, ikbennett.com $115

So after weeks of searching for something new to wear, and a promise to myself that I would not buy ONE MORE LITTLE BLACK DRESS, I have found my outfit.  So I will be all dressed up, with somewhere to go on Saturday night.  In black.

Well, at least it’s not a dress this time!  It is, in fact, a “playsuit” says French Connection – one of my oldest and dearest friends.  A sequined playsuit, more to the point.  And I am not a head-to-toe  sequins (ok, thigh) kind of girl, but I thought I’d take a chance this time.

I paid a small fortune to have Frenchconnection.com overnight this adorable outfit to me by 10:30a.m. this morning – I guess it’s  payback for all the times I’ve “cheaped out” and waited to order until shipping was free.  And even before 10a.m., it was here!

I also found the formerly $120 black suede B. Makowsky’s on sale at Von Maur for $32. (I thought I was buying them for $86, so that was a huge surprise!)  And I already own bezel-set earrings, black opague tights, sparkly bracelets and a red clutch.

Oh yeah, I also own the black tuxedo topper I have planned to wear over it, for a not-so-frigid January night.

Mission accomplished.  And with 48 hours to spare!

Daily Covet: The embellishments this evening are…

Laundry by Shelli Segal, Satin Embellished-Neck Dress, lastcall.com $189

The menu item for my post-holiday parties is this gorgeous “starlight” blue satin dress.  And I’ll take the embellishments too.

After all, why woudn’t I?   An elegant mix of sequins and beads against this rich blue satin is my ticket to evening glamour.

And the best part?  The price is right!  (Although not as right as yesterday, when it was 40% off, instead of 25% off!)

Prefer it in black instead?  You’re in luck!

Daily Covet: Warm and fuzzy…on the outside

MICHAEL Michael Kors Sequined Eyelash Fringe Bouclé Jacket, Nordstrom $175.00

These Chanel-ish bouclé jackets are all the rage again this season but this one has sequins and metallic thread running through it, making it evening-wear ready.

Or match it up with your favorite pair of heather gray, wool, flannel trousers and you have a “ladies who lunch” ensemble; just add champagne!

But in all honesty, I’d prefer to throw it on with my darkest of skinny jeans, my highest of black pumps and give it a pop with a bright satin bag.

At this price, it’s a staple and you’ll be able to wear it on and off for years to come!
