Somehow, and I’m not quite sure how this happened, my wardrobe has been almost completely devoid of sequins, bar a glitzy golden pair of heels, for far too long. Taking advantage of the Black Friday sales, I managed to rectify this slightly with this stripe and sequin number I had been eying up for quite some time. Not quite so glaringly in your face as gold sequins, and for me, it is more of a subtle nuance to the festive season – but unfortunately a subtlety which doesn’t quite show up on camera.
I’m thinking that my J Crew obsession will probably hit a peak sometime over the next few months, having recently discovered and successfully used NZ Post’s “YouShop” parcel forwarding service (which as luck would have it, is far more cost-effective than buying direct) – which also, correct me if I’m wrong, I believe is available to our Australian neighbours too. With all the shops in the US that this FINALLY opens my mail box to, I foresee myself needing some serious self-restraint, especially during sale season!
