Outfit: Pink & Sequins

2012-01-06 15.17.40

Today’s outfit post is my entry into Bloggers Do It Better where Kristina has challenged us all to wear sequins. I love the idea of Bloggers Do It Better but I’ve only participated in one before which was the Colour Blocking Challenge that I posted here. When I saw the sequins challenge I knew I couldn’t let this opportunity pass by because I absolutely adore sequins. Although I do have a black sequined dress I thought I would wear my sequined cardigan for this post because I’ve wanted to display it on my blog for ages but I never got around to it. My sequin cardigan is one of my DIY projects. I sewed all of the sequins on myself. I completed it during the winter holidays last year and it took me about two weeks. I love having such a unique item and I know I’ll never find one that is exactly the same. I took inspiration from the sequin cardigans in Alannah Hill last season. It is the best feeling ever when I receive compliments on a cardigan that I have entirely customised myself.

I recently purchased these pink jeans after my only pair of jeans disappeared. I totally should have bought some coloured denim before! I very rarely wear jeans and one of the main reasons is because I believe they don’t fit in with my very feminine style. So I think that pink jeans are perfect for me and are a girly take on a pair of jeans. I also love adding colour to an otherwise predominately black outfit. In terms of my shoes, they will probably be the subject of my next DIY project. I want to customise them with glitter.

  1. I definitely want to incorporate more sequins into my life. I love the cardigan. You did a great job on putting on the sequins.

    The pink jeans look fabulous on you as well.


  2. Oh wow, you sewed on all those sequins yourself? It's the prettiest cardigan ever and I would definitely have paid for it in the shop. I don't have the patience to sew all of them on myself so I'm a little but in awe- definitely looks like the hard work was all worth it! It's stunning.
