Wishlist Wednesday: Sequins and Wishpot

Sequins! Oh My!

Golden Girls @ Dream Sequins
Inspiration: Golden Girls (source)

This is hardly groundbreaking news, but sequins will continue to be a hot trend for Fall 2009. I was fighting Balmain-ia (i.e. strong shoulders, 80s and aggressive shine) for a long time, but after checking out some vintage shots of the cast members rocking strong-shouldered sequin jackets on The Golden Girls, something about tacky over the top sequin gear feels oh-so-right. So, move over, tastefully muted paillettes and subtly sprinkled tunics. And bring on the bling-tastic vintage and Etsy finds for this Wishlist Wednesday!

I use it when I go "window shopping" on the web; it's very simple and intuitive to use once you've installed the button on your browser bar or added to your bookmarks list.

I need that Rock Paper Vintage IMMEDIATELY. NO JOKE DUDE.

HA I take a smidge of pleasure in your approval of Balmain this season! WOOP WOOP!!!

And wtf...now I have to go to the dentist!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brigadeiro said...

Those sequin harem pants are amazing! I have the Topshop version that is in their current campaign on my wishlist, but don't known when/whether it will be coming out.

Hm...other items include the Stella McCartney nude mesh sandals with lucite heel and/or YSL cage sandals. :)

I finally took the plunge and bought the Swarovski Nirvana ring I've been wanting for years, gave up on waiting for hubby to buy it for me (thought it'd be a good anniversary gift, but 2 anniversaries gone, no pressies, no card...ah well!)


Midtown Girl said...

I am loving the shoes in the first pic - wow & wow.

I'm thinking sequins in a headband as the spash to my wardy this fall!!


Susan said...

Haha, love the Golden Girls inspiration! You know I'm a huge fan of the sequins, so I loved this post. However, I can't say I love those diaper pants... :)

daisychain said...

I am so loving sequins right now. Those harem pants need to be mine.

TheBeautyFile said...

This unreal dress:


Really, for no reason at all.

The Anthology said...

Yes, yes, yes! Sequins! (Soooo fitting when you consider your name, isn't it?)

On my wishlist today is a trip to the gym. Boring, I know, but I'm really wishing, hoping and praying I have time to go tonight.

Livie said...

Sequins totally rule - like I said for Stella McCartney's Fall 09 collection, I loved the sequined suit! I think sequins are fun b/c you can do so many different looks with them, from glam to gaudy 80's to super pretty and girly.

My wish list right now consists of really round sunglasses, zipper bodycon dress or skirt, and motorcycle boots.

Sher said...

My wish list is Oxford shoes :)

Diana said...

I use Amazon Universal Wishlist, but I love the idea of Wishpot.

I know you said you are not a huge fan of Toms Shoes, but I have the gold sequined shoes and I love them. They are casual with some flash.
Also, I'm still on the lookout for a sequined tutu!!

E said...

AH! I love that you're inspired by Golden Girls! I had Thank You for Being a Friend stuck in my head ALL DAY FRIDAY - don't ask me why.

Dooder City said...

I love the red sequined bow! I am totally on board for the sequined train.

Nini's Style said...

Those sequin harem pant are amazing!!! and the blue sequin jacket is stunning!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE

somedaynewyorker said...

I love blue sequins like that. It always wears so beautifully.

Kristin said...

I think that headband is no on my wishlist. And I'm dying for the Topshop sequin blazer that's out!

Pen Pen said...

:) I LOVE ur dress!!!
I want this white cocktail dress from PoshVintageGirl, but it's too expensive-I'm so scared it will be gone by the time I have the cash. I also want a vintage leather shoulder bag to put my laptop in for my new job--AND some saddle shoes!!

Shin said...

Mmmm...sequins! I love them! I adore that blue sequin jacket! So beautiful! My wish list includes everything on ASOS at the moment and some Jeffrey Campbell booties! xxoxoxo

Lynn said...

oh, i'm loving all the sequins. i crush the ribbon bib necklace. can this be pulled off on a day-time attire? maybe if its minimal. what do you think?

Eyeliah SS said...

Sequins I love! That rock paper vintage thing is gorgeous, but you can tend to find a lot second hand (as not everyone loves it like we do). ;-)

Gabbi said...

You make me want a sequined something!

And I don't know, but Blanche looks good in red sequins :) How I hated that show when I was a little girl. It meant it was Sunday night and I had to got school the next day.

Style & Beyond said...

D you don't wanna see my list EVER!!! AHAHAHA

great post -- perfect outfit for cocktails perhaps?? *hint* *hint* LOL

PS: C'mon.. you wouldn't be Dream Sequins if you don't wear sequins at the event!?!!? =D



Ela said...

I've been on a major hunt for sequinned jacket, no such luck yet. I also have to pick up the sequinned leggings from H&M, which apparently are dirt cheap.

p.s. Found your post through Lizzy @ It's Unbeweavable :)

Shopn'Chomp said...

Omg, that sequin headband! I want!!!

Polished Sense said...

Seriously lady! Loving all this sequence! Especially the blue dress, headband and those black pants! I want sequence in my wardrobe now!


Lily G. said...

All the sequins is fab!

WendyB said...

I can't remember which magazine I was reading but I'm sure it was Vogue or Elle saying sequins were "over." Hilarious in a stupid way. They're still really gaining steam, I'd say.

queengilda said...

i hope you will be in sequins for the IFB meet. :D can't wait to see you. if i'm quiet it's because i get shy in front of new people. even though i will be in crazy clothes. lol.

thank you so much for featuring my sequined pants!!

PinkBow said...

i just adore sequins! & the golden girls - what a blast from the past, my how i loved that show!

Thumbelina Fashionista said...

I love Golden Girls...they were the first Sex and the City!

I have a hard time warming up to sequins. They have to be done right. I prefer a toned-down version--if that even exists!

Deka said...

wish - a python bag
problem - $2500 and illegal in CA

more likely watersnake from beirn :)

InnyVinny said...

That bow necklace is too cute!!!

And I'm mad for loving those sequined pants. LOL

MizzJ said...

Hehe I remember Golden Girls, they were truly the funniest old ladies ever. I like the bow sequin top, but the others might be a bit much to pull off haha
