Sequins! Oh My!
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!
