Would You Wear: Sequined Shorts?

You know in movies when a character is so deep in thought they wander around the city completely unaware of their surroundings, stepping in front of buses and scattering flocks of pigeons? That was me yesterday, pondering sequined shorts. As a diehard fan of sequins, I love every sparkly trend, but sequined shorts bring u…

Do Not Want: A Sequined Top For The Senior Set

It’s not so much that we’re opposed to this shirt–which reminds of us one of the most beloved television characters of all time, Dorothy Zbornak–it’s just that no one should ever pay full price for a shirt like this when so many languish in the thrift stores and vintage shops of America.

Style Stealer: Mena Suvari’s Nightclub Look
