Momma Kitty gave me this sequined scarf for Christmas one year. While it is deliciously sparkly and gorgeous, oh boy, does it itch! Beyond itching, it’s more of a scratchy, slicing feeling. It definitely cannot come into contact with even the tiniest bit of my sensitive skin while being worn. However, it pairs perfectly with a mock turtle neck shell that sets off the shine with just a hint of white. Tucking the scarf under a blazer toned down the flamboyance enough to make it suitable for the office.
I truly enjoyed the sleek sophistication of this outfit. So many of my looks have focused on a vintage vibe lately, it’s nice to achieve a modern, professional elegance once in a while. I also really loved my hair pulled straight back like this, with a floofy hairpiece covering the boring bun for a change.
Have you ever worn sequins to work? How did you pull it off?
