Ello Lovies, if you haven’t already checked out my latest You Tube video then you possibly should as renovations madness occurred in its full capacity last week! Eeek!
Our Contractor whom we’ve been working with since April, planning our bathroom & kitchen remodel, finally came in & demolitioned our entire 2 bathrooms & after 1 week he quit!! WTF! Right? We were shocked too! I didn’t even know that that could happen! Zack asked 1 question which was “when will our pocket doors (that we were getting installed) going to be ready?” The Contractor replied that he was “going to step back” from the job as he felt like he was being rushed. He then went on to ignore Zack’s calls & my frantic text messages. After having his calls thwarted, Zack found another Contractor the same day…
Our Ex-Contractor cooled off then emailed the next day explaining himself & offered to finish our bathrooms but said we should find someone else for the kitchen. Zack wasn’t having any of it & after we discussed being left high & dry I replied to him that we no longer required his services. What a bloody mess!!
Designers are always playing with the boundaries of fashion, seeing how far they can take a trend & Sequins & Shine is a prominent one for pre-fall 2017. I mean who doesn’t love “bling”?? Recyclable as fashion is Glam rock & Bowie inspired sequins have been showing up on the runway with brands such as Jenny Packham, Roberto Cavalli (as i live & breathe!) Altuzarra & of course the ever classic Chanel…
Splurge Option There was so much to offer on this trend if you have beaucoup bucks as you can see. I showcased 2 night time looks & 1 day to night look.The first one a full on sequins on sequins on sequins for my petite ladies (couldn’t help myself okay!) The Roberto Cavalli Sequin Silk Dress $4680.00 & what a dress it is, BABY GOT BACK! Paired with Ginette NY Sequins Diamond & 18K Rose Gold Stud Earrings $975.00, Edie Parker Jean Glitter stripe Acrylic Clutch $1195.00 & lastly Giuseppe Zanotti Sequin 105 metallic Booties $895.00. This outfit does NOT mess around & what a punch it packs if I say so myself! 😉
Splurge Option 2 For my curvy ladies, I wanted to showcase 2 hot trends right now Gingham & of course shine! This Diane Von Furstenberg sequined midi dress is OFF THE CHARTS & at $468.00 yes please! Teamed up with BaubleBar Piñata Tassel Earrings $36.00 (i have them in hot pink, yaass!) Alice & Olivia Multi-stripe sequin clutch $495.00 & Lastly Louboutin Foilles Lace Red Sole Pump in Multi color $795.00. I would rock this outfit all night every night if i could, just fabulous!
Splurge Option 3 I went with this lovely jubbly NO.21 metallic sequined color block skirt $1260.00 & paired with this white Topshop Bardot Hook & Eye crop top $28.00, Sonix Ibiza 55mm cat Eye Sunglasses $98.00, nude Christian Louboutin So Kate Patent Leather clutch $850.00 & Kate Spade New York $88.00 (comes in white as well which is to die for!) I mixed some save & splurge options in here like I’ve said before not every piece has to break the bank, all put together this look is SMOKIN’!!
Splurge Summary I’m obsessed with this trend as it’s flattering to all body types both petite & curvy. For my medical device wearers it is a teeny weenie bit heavy in weight but other than that your good.Sequins & Shine is such a fun & funky way of expressing oneself, so go for it, i’ts a free fall for all!
Catch you next week Wednesday Lovies.
Cheers & Best Wishes,
Afi Like Taffy A.L.T.
