My mom bought this French Connection sequin minidress for me and my sisters a couple of years ago when we were visiting Bath, England. We were excited about it because the dress was named the “Shelley”- and that is my mom’s name!
My sisters have worn it as a dress but as the tallest sis I can’t really pull it off as a dress- it is way too short for me. I have worn it over leggings in the wintertime but tonight I decided to pull it out and wear it as a top for date night!
I could have chosen black leggings or dark denim for this look but I really wanted the high contrast of distressed medium blue denim with the dressy sequins. I wanted it to be a little more casual than it would have been with a darker bottom. I like the color combo of the salmon with the medium blue. I chose sleek pointed toe booties to elongate the look of the bottom half, this was key to pulling off this look since I chose such a strong contrasting pant. I think it would work with strappy sandals if I had been wearing a dark bottom. As usual I couldn’t be bothered to accessorize more than my apple watch and a quick clutch!
Have you tried dressing down your sequins to make them more wearable? It’s a fun look to wear!
