3 Ways to Wear a Sequin Skirt

9 January 2013

One of the best ways to freshen up your wardrobe is to invest in a statement skirt.

A bold, eye-catching skirt design can go a long way with all the tops, tanks, tees, shirts and jackets that you currently own.

Many months ago, I spotted this geometric sequin skirt from Forever New. I saw it and immediately wanted it, but it was $120 (I think!). I tried it on, and stood in the change room umming and ahhing over it. I couldn’t justify the price at the time, so I reluctantly put it back.

Then a couple of weeks ago, I saw it heavily discounted to $40!! I think it wasn’t a very popular item because there were three size 6’s and eight size 8’s and a gazillion size 10’s on the racks. Big win for meee!

I wore it to a small fashion store launch and a total of 6 people walked up to me and asked me where I got it from. Haha at first I was a bit shy to admit that I got it for close to nothing, but after a while, it was such a great conversation topic in the end (ie. discussing all the fabulous fashion items we bought for mere pennies!)
