…is not gold. All that glitters is sequins! Or glitter. Speaking of glitter, I missed the late 90s when glitter could be counted as makeup. The good ol’ days.
Back to the topic at hand. I had two bachelorette parties to go to this summer and wore the same dress to each (two weekends in a row). How dare she!? I have this bad habit of not wanting to wear the same fancy dresses often. And it’s black-ish. Not a color I wear much and not a color I like to wear to fancy events, because of the prevalence of black. But, one of the parties was supposed to be bride wears white and everyone else wears black. So I found this dress many months ago at the Express after winter sale and new that sequins would make black bearable for me. I really love this dress. Comfortable, sexy but not risque, and of course, sequins. I styled it differently for each bachelorette (more classic for downtown San Diego with red and more fun with neon for the one in Vegas).
