desperately sequin susan

you can call me susan, or whatever you'd like if i can just have this valentino bag. it's only $4,895! but look at it. you might remember it as blair's frenemy brandeis' bag a few weeks ago on GG.

where would i wear it? a reasonable question - i don't know, trader joe's? CVS? the bagel place? it reminds me of a conversation my parents once overheard at the louis vuitton store ... picture this: a certain type of suburban woman demanding that the shopgirl "show me something fabulous, like something i could wear to a PTA meeting."


and yet...PLEASE?!? no wonder jess is looking happy these days. aren't sequins just so special feeling?

and while we're on sequins, check out these items.

free people stardust sequin sweater:

j crew sequin scarf cardigan:

and here's a really reasonably priced scarf as a cautious foray into the sequin business.(n.b. great gift idea too!)

now here is a sequin style i just do not get:

from h&m:

what is with those shoulders?

okay, fine, i'll take the valentino bag. FINE.

I would appreciate more visual materials, to make your blog more attractive, but your writing style really compensates it. But there is always place for improvement
