we have always had a huge love affair with all things sequin. i still remember my very first vintage purchase was a silk cream top embellished with silver and turquoise sequins. this set off the infactuation and our affair has since got somewhat out of control. it may not even be to my taste but if it has sequins on it then hey ill take it!......they sparkle, they glitter, they shine, they make you happy when you where them!.... so much so that my wedding dress was a gold sequin gown.... love?
