What I'm Wearing: Glitz and Glam

I love me some sequins. I fear I am borderline obsessed. I spot sparkle out of the corner of my eye and run to it like a wild Banshee. If you were to get in between me and the sparkling object, I cannot promise you would make it out alive. Just a fair warning. Faux leather leggings have also become an obsession of mine. I have two pair and would wear them every other day if I could. They are comfortable and super stylish. Don't you agree? This is the part where you nod emphatically in agreement so I don't have to give you the stank eye.

I saw this beautiful mini-dress at Forever 21 before the holidays and knew I needed to own it. My mom actually bought it as one of my Christmas gifts and I am just now getting around to wearing it. I don't know what took me so long - but purple sequin dress + leather leggings + magenta blazer = one sassy outfit. I got quite a few compliments on this one - to which I responded "Duh" - kidding. I am not quite that rude and socially awkward.

  23. Kassi, I am so sorry that I have not been able to leave a comment on your last few posts. I have been reading but taking the time to post has just been too much to ask of myself. Work has been killing me of late. No more whining...

    Anyway, this dress is sassy. I just love your style.

    Please don't give me the stank eye...

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,

Kassi
