Early in the January sales I picked up this wicked sequin dress in Dorothy Perkins. It was to be my New Years Eve party frock, but due to a slight bout of sickness, my exciting sparkly night out was not to be. Roll on last weekend and I sure made up for it with a night on the town and the ladies. I picked up an awesome shoulder padded blazer in Awear on Friday, and together they were just a match made in heaven! Not so vintage, but oh so gorgeous!
Sequins are also quite dangerous to wear. If you're wearing a full dress or piece, you definitely need something to absorb some of sparklyness. Is that a word? It is now! Anyway, both sequins and 'shoulders' (I guess with extra padding!) are due to be big in the year of 2010 having frequented both the London and Paris fashion weeks last autumn.
Oh and hey, check out the Awear Blog.
