A night out - Brews Brothers in Galveston beer!

Brews Brothers in Galveston is owned by my friend Justin and is my fav place to go out for specialty beer!

NARS purple shadow and Fairy Lashes in SEXY. Haha my lipgloss was totally gone by the end of the night :)

Not only does he carry the best beer, but his half pint glasses (shown above) are so adorable. ^_^ Yes, he did pick them out himself, haha.

Blue Crush

My best friend, Amanda, has always loved blue. It's never been my favorite color, but I'm starting to fall in love with it! I came by these pieces via ebay and a gal selling her JC shoes on Twitter. ^_^

I really love how these two seem made for each other.

Hahaha, this is pretty much my entire collection of luxury items, but I love them so much.

Recent gets

Here are some recent things I got ^_^ and I'm very happy with. The shirts are from F21, the ankle boots are from DOTS, and the jacket from JC Penny.

I love the way the boots look with a pair of jeans and the leopard cross fringe shirt.

The peter pan collared sweater is so soft :) and looks great with a black pencil skirt or jeans.

Sequins? In the day time?

Have you ever looked at that one sequined or sparkly piece in your closet and thought to yourself, "I wish I could wear that more..." and sighed to yourself?

I think Express might know how you feel. And I do too, but sequins as a day time look? Tread carefully... there's a reason such things are considered night time looks. Consider this, a sequin skirt paired with a dressy top and heels for a night out. The sequins catch a bit of ambient light and give a little sparkle, pretty. Now imagine the same look in the day time. The sun is shining and your sequin skirt sparkles constantly. To me, that seems a bit gaudy.

Take a look at this ad by Express:

Often times, magazine ads show looks that you wouldn't actually wear down to every detail but provide an inspiration for pieces offered by a certain retailer. This idea of wearing that sequin with a day look is not exactly considered a good call.

Express is usually a forefront for US fashion, but I am very disappointed in this. In my opinion, sequins and sparkles should be used sparingly in the daytime. A full on sequin piece looks foolish when worn for a day out anywhere.

While I love the idea of transitioning a day look to a night look, and vice versa, I believe some pieces should only come out in the dark. Like sequin skirts. ^_^

What do you think? Have you ever worn something like this out during the day? Did it work for you? Comment!
