Glitz & Glamour

       
       Sequins and metallics are definitely popular trends for the fall and winter and the red carpet of the 2011 American Music Awards on Sunday was filled with sparkling ensembles. Taylor Swift was my absolute favorite from the red carpet wearing Reem Acra. Her full sequin dress was dazzling! It's a trend that I've always loved, and it looks like it's going to be around for a while.

       Who doesn't love a little sparkle? I'm absolutely loving the glitz, so for my semi-formal event for my sorority this past weekend, I went with a short mini sequin dress from Forever 21 with my Steve Madden glitter heels.

       With this trend at an all-time high, you can find the perfect dress or outfit for all of your holiday festivities; especially fabulous for New Year's Eve! Whether you're looking for just an eye-catching accessory or a bold and shiny outfit, don't be afraid to try this trend for yourself too! For an affordable outfit, check out Forever 21 and Express.

  35. I love the sequin trend. Especially in mini skirts paired with something more toned down - like a chunky knit. Unexpected and fabulous.

  51. You look perfect!
    Love your blog you do a great job!
    I was really saddened reading your portfolio where you say: "I will eventually live in New York City and work for a fashion magazine even though everyone tells me that I won't."
    You can do ANYTHING you set your mind to...follow your dreams and attack any small writing opportunities you can with newspapers or whatever...only looks better on your resume and experience...thats what I do for my local paper...my own fashion column and its been so fun and looks GREAT on my resume... Dare to dream chickie!
