Casual Sequins


It's taken me about two hours to write this post. Jane Eyre is on TV, and I keep getting sidetracked by Mr. Rochester's waistcoats, breeches and early Victorian gazes of longing.

Today's effort, in lieu of a corset, petticoats, and that awful center-parted, pulled-down over the ears hair that the women of the 1850s walked around in, I decided to go with this. Casual sequins, flat loafers, and a faux leather and denim skirt. It's New Year's Eve after all. Instead of going all-out glam, I'm taking a more casual approach this year. Yes, there's bling, but it's undone bling. I like that it's not trying too hard. In fact, it's practically passing for normal. Happy New Year everyone!

  1. Ooh, I LOVE that top! Right up my alley! I'm obsessed with that soft grey colour; I have to stop myself buying too much stuff in it. And I love sequins as daywear as well. Very nice.

  2. Love the casual sequins, think I need to add some to my wardrobe. What IS it about those brooding Victorian hulks??

  5. Perfect choice. Sparkly but not over-the-top. I have the exact same top in red which I wore for my Christmas post. It achieved the same impression. Festive and classy. I hope you have the best of New Years!

  6. I love that top. Looks great. I love Jane Eyre too....except for that dreadful hair...and the ringlets...shiver..ickk. Btw I think that look you're giving the camera in the second picture might be what Jane Austen or Charlotte Bronte would call "a side-long look?" Happy New Year.

    1. Definitely! That's the look Mr. Darcy gets when he is loudly espousing his opinions on the lack of "handsome" women in the room, lol.

  7. This is the perfect New Year's Eve look! I've been thinking about what to wear tonight as we're having a few guests in. I'm going shamelessly steal this idea. (Or, at least my take on it based on what I've got in my closet.) Thanks for the idea!
    I re-read Wuthering Heights recently and struggled to remember why I thought it was so dreadfully romantic as a teen. Now I think Catherine has some issues with food, Heathcliff has some serious control issues, they are all dreadfully mismatched and should marry outside their families.

    1. If anything, reading these novels from the mid 1800s really makes one appreciative for the fact that we're modern women. Can you imagine needing to have a dowry? sheesh.
