Outfit of The Day – Saggy Sequins

IMAG0523

  • Sequin Baseball Dress – Native Rose (bought at Urban Outfitters)
  • Ripped Boyfriend Jeans – Urban Outfitters
  • DR. Martens (VERY old)

I’m completely in love with my jazzy sequin baseball dress; but it’s one of those items that’s so jazzy that once you’ve worn it on a few nights out you feel like you have to keep it under wraps for a while.. because its so memorable.  I wanted to try it out as a dressed-down daytime outfit so I can get more use out of it.  I think it looks well paired with these super baggy boyfriend jeans, and the length of the dress hides the fact that the jeans keep falling down round my arse!

My trusty Dr. Marten boots are so old, I don’t even want to think about it..  it makes me feel like a withering old lady.

(9 years old if you must know….UGH).

Aside from the fact that I feel like I’m getting eve- closer to middle age, my DM’s have served me SO well; they’ve been through many a festival and general hideous Belfast weather and they’re still going.  Not a hole in sight.  They have a lot of scuffs on the top but I think that adds to the look of them – and they’re soft as butter as I’ve worn them so much.

You can check out the boots Dr. Marten’s has to offer here.  I’m loving these:

I’ve been noticing this trend emerging for a while now in editorial shoots & on the catwalk – but was surprised by how much imagery I found when I actually researched it. Glitter in general has been having a massive beauty moment – check out my glitter lips and eyebrows from 2014:

Here’s some glittery sparkle hair inspiration photos I’ve found:

How not to do it..

tumblr_ni0tiipNmQ1s50b0ho1_500Looks like a homemade ceramic Christmas decoration!?!

I intend on trying this out myself ASAP.  I’m thinking glitter hair spray from Claire’s Accessories will work nicely.  Literally the same stuff I used when I was going to the Primary School Disco haha. Nostalgia! I’d probably try some standard hair gel + craft shop glitter for the more slicked back styles & glitter roots.  If it works out well I’ll post it up ;).
