Since it’s Monday and we just finished a much needed weekend, I thought it was appropriate to post an outfit with one of the coolest sequined dresses ever made. It’s a fiesta in dress form — it’s shiny, it’s gold…simply a girls dream!  A dress like this requires very little in the accessories department: An equally bright bag, coordinating nude pumps and a spiky gold bracelet do the trick. But you probably wonder now…”This is a dress?!” Yes, it actually is (!) but I wore it as a top instead. Why? Well, Chicago’s weather isn’t warm enough yet to wear it as a dress only (it’s quite short!) hence I decided to pair it with a beautiful lace skirt. Hope you like it!

As always, thanks for reading & have a fabulous week!

Much love!

    You look ever so beautiful and you wear these pieces very, very well! I love the introduction of sequins to an outfit, although rarely do it myself. The red backdrop is fantastic by the way, shocking and unexpected! Have a lovely week! ๐Ÿ™‚
