OOTD :: of even more sequins and being obnoxious




Hullo, Wordless Wednesday!

Thanks for allowing me to co-opt the day with words that were meant for Monday but were postponed because of the May the 4th revelation and last-minute switcheroo.

Today, I give you the most obnoxious of my [sequined skirt] acquisitions, superlative utilized if only because it makes noise when I move. Seriously. The sequins – or, in this case, paillettes – are attached in such a way that they shake and shimmy against each other, making me sound like a rattling maraca as I walk.

So not only am I in your face visually, but I am audibly as well.

To tone it down and to make sequins more day appropriate, I teamed it with a cropped top in a casual jersey material. Ignore the fact that there are words – WORDS! – across my chest. I’ve decided that as long as the words are not in English, anything goes. And really – isn’t the message on this beauty just so me?! The only thing that could make it even more brilliant would be if it had been in Japanese.

I stole the idea of tank-under-crop from my precocious daughter (who, by the way, is now able to fit into XS clothes from F21. Oh, my heart!) and I’m thrilled that another vista of clothing options has opened up to me. I can totally rock the cropped top look with impunity now. Huzzahs all around.

      Do you have to make up the missed day on the back end, though? Oh, btw – my end-of-the-year project is called “Build a Better School” and I encouraged my students to go international and research educational systems outside the U.S. Any words of wisdom or insights you could impart about the British way?

  3. Great look (as usual). You remind me to dig out my sequin skirt

  4. I need this whole outfit. I really do.

      As long as I’m standing or walking. No sitting down in this skirt for me. (Reference my reply to Anne.)

    Can’t wait for #4 — you ARE showcasing it tomorrow, right?
    Love your description of this one. No sneaking around in paillettes!

      And no respite from pain either – this skirt slashed the backs of my thighs something awful. 😦 I wanna keep it because it’s the flashiest of the four but not if it hurts to sit.

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
