Sequin's, Swavarski's and Sparkles, OH MY!

Last night, Justine and i went to go check out the movie, "This Is It" which featured the rare behind-the-scenes footage as Michael Jackson prepared for his upcoming shows in London-town. With the passing of the beloved KING OF POP this past summer,designers everywhere seem to have been inspired by his flashy wardrobe & regal style. Many of these MJ inspired pieces have been making their way down the runways & in stores everywhere this season. My true obsession with anything SHINY has gone to the next level because so many department stores + boutiques are carrying this look which makes it VERY hard for me to resist a sequin! I found myself singing out-loud during Thriller, Billy Jean, Rock with You & OOooo-ing and Ahhh-ing at the fabulously embellished costumes MJ was donning in the movie. The best way to rock the sequin look is to pair it with something more simple. For example, check out this Eight Sixty Jacket i bought for one of my clients. We paired it with a crisp white Michael Stars Tank, Dark Skinny Joe's Jeans and these Kelsi Dagger booties. Such a fun City Chic look and it wont break the bank! Speaking of breaking the bank, pictured are some of my favorite picks if you must splurge. From top photo after MJ movie poster down, Sequin Smoking Jacket , Balmain Crystal.Studded.Jacket, Winter.’09 (price upon request), Stella McCartney Jacket (price upon request). Everyone has their own opinions about MJ but as far as i am concerned, the man was a lyrical and fashion genius. RIP Michael Jackson, may your music & style live on!
