Sometimes I surprise myself with what I can put together to make an outfit. This look was very much a happy accident. I Haven't been able to shop much these days, and I've apparently gained weight because nothing I own fits! I have really been scraping by to make outfits lately it seems. I'm not about to go and buy new clothes, because I'm confident my extra weight will disappear soon! Until I feel better about my wardrobe, I am going to continue to get creative!

I bought this skirt last Christmas, but I've only worn it once! It's a pretty loud statement piece and I could never find the right occasion for it. I decided to take my own advice and "make an occasion." I didn't exactly host a party in order to wear it, but rather, I styled it so it would be appropriate for any day. I wanted to make it office appropriate, seeing as that's pretty much the only place I go. Who knew an over-sized boyfriend blazer would take this look "out the club" and into the office?

Would you wear sequins to work?

Trivia: Did you know that the common phrase "all that glitters is not gold," was originally written by Shakespeare as "all that glisters?" (Source: Wikipedia)
