Friday: Daytime Sequins

Tank: c/o Gwynnie Bee
Tux Jacket: Ann Taylor (similar)
Bracelets: Ann Taylor (here and here)

Jeans: Gap
Shoes: MICHAEL Michael Kors

I was so excited to get my latest Gwynnie Bee box – so much sparkle and fun for fall! This tank was one of the pieces and it's reason # 4,521 why Gwynnie Bee rocks. I love sequined tops, but I don't have the lifestyle for wearing them on a regular basis. However, with a Gwynnie Bee subscription I can get fun sparkly tops like this just for a bachelorette party, a weekend away, or even an upcoming holiday party. This top comes in a variety of colors too; I love how the black isn't plain, it's iridescent with lots of green that shows up in the light.

If you wear a 10 or larger and are intrigued by Gwynnie Bee, I encourage you to read my review of the company here. And if you want to sign up, the next few days are the time to do it!

Do know I get a commission for each person I refer to Gwynnie Bee, but I have chosen to partner with them because I really do believe in this company, their service, and commitment to their customers!

    Love sequins during the daytime! You did it perfectly 🙂

    Did you dye your hair? It looks darker…

      I have been off and on with Natural Instincts. The warmer weather was lightening my hair so when it starts fading I try to use a temporary dye to get it back to its natural color 🙂

    I’m always enthused for jeans with a black top! Add sequins and its even better.

    This is a great outfit. You have convinced me to try out boyfriend jeans. I have pretty narrow hips but humongous thighs. Basically, jeans only seem to fit around my thighs if they are huuuge everywhere else.These will probably work well for me. And you styled them just the way that I would.

    Allie, I LOVE this outfit! I always like the juxtaposition between a pair of perfectly faded jeans and something a bit more on the classy side like a blazer. Tres chic!

    Like Kristine, I wish there was something similar for smaller sizes. I wear a 2 -4 so this does not work for me.

    I love how the blazer and jeans make the sequins more casual, but still insanely fabulous!

    Is there anything like Gwynnie Bee for someone who is a size 8? I love the idea but I wouldn’t fit the sizes that are offered through this company.

    • October 26, 2012 / 2:59 pm

      Not that I know of. Gwynnie Bee created it because women 10 and up have the hardest time shopping in malls and standard stores. They plan to focus on those sizes, hopefully going into petites and more variety. It is a great idea though for other sizes, someone should set it up! 🙂

    I am guessing Gwynnie Bee is only for US residents, though?

    I’ve actually signed up for my one month because of you! I will say: I love the ability to try on & get a feel for the clothes without having to buy/return all the time. There are a few pieces I love enough that I’d like to buy them (hint hint: Gwynnie Bee– at least let us know WHERE we can!). That being said, I find two downsides: 1) enough of the clothes aren’t my tasted, especially when 2) you need at least 12 items in your closet at all times. It’s a real challenge for me to fill up those 12 right now!

    I know you had mentioned that you can “vote” on Pinterest on what you’d like to see them get, but I’ve yet to find that board… I wish I could though, because if I were to keep with it, I’d want to know that I’m paying for pieces I’d wear!

    • October 26, 2012 / 2:25 pm

      Here’s their Pinterest account: http://pinterest.com/gwynniebee/ You can see they have boards for each delivery of new arrivals where you can comment, vote and more. I have seen an increase in styles since I have joined a couple months ago and I can really tell that they are listening to their subscribers and adapting accordingly!

        “I can really tell that they are listening to their subscribers and adapting accordingly!” Yes! I’ve noticed that in the few short weeks I have been on it, and I do appreciate that a LOT. So many businesses lose sight of their customers needs and wants…. so I love that they’re doing that.

          I have the same problem with not having enough to fill up my closet. And then it’s frustrating when something I put in as a filler ends up being what I get.

          I wouldn’t recommend Gwynnie Bee – at least at this stage of its development – as a resource for party or travel wear as you never know what you’re actually going to get. So you might be desperate for that cocktail dress to wear this weekend and end up with a casual sweater.

          But it is great for mixing up my work and weekend wear!

    I love this look! I can’t believe I never thought of this combo. It’s the bf jeans that make it perfect. I hope you’re down for some imitation flattery. 🙂
