Remember when wearing stripes was a big no no? Wearing sequins was not even an option for us at one point. My how the times have changed. Sequins always had a soft spot in my heart since my days in dance school. Fun costumes with all their sparkly glamour. The more sequins the better. Now looking back, I have always been a fashion addict, because I am sitting here reminiscing about costumes from my childhood...lol.
I was going to the Erykah Badu concert in Brooklyn, and I felt this was the perfect occasion to wear my Striped Collared Sequin Dress from Eloquii. When this dress went up on their site, it was a must have for me. I do enjoy dressing up, and this is the perfect dress for it. It's preppy collar and stripes give this dress a wearable appeal despite it being made entirely of sequins. Most sequined clothing limits your range of motion because the lining does not stretch. This is not the case with this dress. This dress is sold out on their site, but Eloquii has a polka dot version. Definitely check out their site, because they are going fast (four women at the concert stopped me and asked where I got it from). I paired the dress with the Adele Laser Cut Bootie. I thought these were the perfect booties to wear for a night out on the town. The wide width of these are perfect, and you can feel the extra cushioning. The bootie is 4 inches, so if you are like me and have been wearing 2-3 inch heels for so long, going back to 4 inches was a little weird at first. After my feet got used to some height I was fine for the rest of the night.
I had so much fun at the concert. Erykah did her thing and it was great spending time with my friends. Now that we are in holiday season you can easily get caught up with work, shopping, and just the everyday hustle, it's nice to have a night out with great music, friends and a great cocktail. The countdown is on lovers, how are you going to spend the last month of 2015?
