Splash of Sequins: December 13th, 2011

Event: Work, DMV

Outfit: Long-sleeved tee: Gap; Sweater: Gap Outlet; Skirt: swapped; Necklace: thrifted; Boots: Steve Madden

Saw Everybody, Everywear’s theme last night (I think this is the second occasion I actually caught it in time?), so figured I’d dress accordingly. My only sequined clothing is a potential NYE dress I have yet to wear, so I figured the necklace would have to do. I’ve worn this piece into the ground since thrifting it last year! So sparkly, so perfect for a basic tee or a fancy dress.I am definitely a magpie, drawn too all things that sparkle and shine, so three cheers for sequins!

As for a daily update, nothing much to report. A few new gifts from kids today (Um, I LOVE YOU, Frango mints) and I went to get my IL license/plates/registration. So awesome to pay $224 to become an IL driver again, after only a 1.5 years in WI. I think it’s my best license photo ever, so at least there’s that (how, I have no idea. Went straight from work and certainly didn’t look great). And I was so grateful to get it all done in one trip (I basically just brought every form of ID/proof of address I could come up with).  IL license design is completely different now (compared to when I last had mine renewed in 2008), but still better than WI’s ugly one!

Signing off. My personal day is tomorrow, so time to get in a workout and spend the night with White Christmas.

P.S. Haircut tomorrow may or may not mean a dramatic change. I’m leaning toward dramatic. Eh, it grows back.

  1. Over $200 to become licensed in IL? Ehhhh.

    Dramatic IS fun. I had a hard time at first with my hair cut last month (Bangs! Layers!) but I ended up loving it.

    Enjoy your personal day! I am so jealous. We have this week and most of next week until Winter Break.

  2. I was lucky that a new license in Virginia was pretty cheap ($30), but the photo is black & white and I wasn’t allowed to smile. It’s a total mug shot and it really made me miss Illinois. Guess we’ll never fully win when it comes to the DMV.

    • Truth. A license was $30 here, too, but it was the plates/title/registration that killed it. No smiling and black and white is just weird…

  3. I can’t wait to see your new hair cut!

    I love the sequin necklace.

  4. I like your artsy sequin pic 🙂 I am also drawn to all sparkle notably sparkly Christmas lights and trees! Obsessed. I really like this outfit nice colors and silhouette

  5. I cannot wait to see what you are going to do with your hair! Such a great skirt and I love the layered wrap top!

  6. Love that sparkly sequined necklace! Wow! Simply elegant and chic, eh.

  7. OK, I’ll admit, I’m really jealous that you got that skirt. I’m kicking myself for not bum-rushing the swap. Ahhh, it could have been mine!
